Sharp and IBM have announced they will work together to develop the Enterprise Edition Zaurus – a Linux-based handheld that works on a foundation of IBM’s software. According to the two companies, this will offer seamless, wireless access to a wide range of enterprise applications.

It will allow mobile employees to access databases to check inventory and order supplies, as well as manage e-mail, address book entries, and calendars while on the road. It also will let companies access a range of applications from a variety of vendors.

The Enterprise Edition Zaurus will be available near the middle of next year. Sharp and IBM plan to support speech recognition in future editions.
