Sharp Zaurus SL-6000 now available in the US
Sharp announced the availability of the Sharp Zaurus SL-6000. This model has been available for some months in other markets and offers a four-inch VGA (640x480 ) touchscreen, Linux operating system and a Java environment.

The device also supports IBM WebSphere solution for enterprise applications.

"The Zaurus SL-6000 has been designed specifically to help corporations connect mobile users seamlessly to critical data," said Steve Petix, associate vice president, Sharp Solutions Division. "It can be easily customized to fit any business' needs with its expandable, flexible hardware and software. The Zaurus mobile data terminal is the only business tool with a full VGA (640 x 480) screen that is portable like a PDA but can display business critical applications with the clarity you would normally expect from a device the size of a laptop."

The handheld has built-in 802.11b, a built-in sliding QWERTY keyboard and both Compact Flash and SD expansion slots. The SL-6000 also has an optional expansion jacket, with additional battery and CF slot.

The Zaurus, running WebSphere Everyplace Connection Manager software, will allow mobile employees to roam, and access information across multiple networks without interrupting Web connections or losing an existing session. Running WebSphere Everyplace Access software on the Linux-based device, remote workers will be able to access Web applications like Lotus Notes or Outlook based PIM and e-mail, and also be able to retrieve information from IBM's DB2 database software. The Sharp Zaurus also supports IBM's WebSphere Everyplace Multimodal Environment for Embedix, which allows end users to run voice command based applications.

In addition to its built-in 802.11b connection, users can also connect through CDMA 1xRTT by using an optional Compact Flash card solution offered by Sprint.

It has 64MB of protected flash memory and 64MB of SDRAM, an Intel XScale 400MHz processor and promisses an extra long battery life with a rechargeable, replaceable 1500 mAh Lithium polymer battery.

The "corporate solutions ready" unit is available now for a manufacturer's suggested list price of US$699.99.
