Back in 2004, Sharp broke new ground in the handheld world by introducing a Zaurus with 4 GB hard drive.
Today, Sharp took the wraps off the Zaurus SL-C3200, its latest model with a built-in 6 GB hard-drive.
Unfortunately, although this company has kept increasing the Storage capacity of its handhelds, in many ways they have remained static.
An Overview of the SL-C3200
Like many previous Zaurus models, this one will use a clamshell design with a color screen on one side and a keyboard on the other. In addition, the screen can rotate and then be closed down over the keyboard. This will allow the unit to be used like a typical handheld.
Although Sharp has, in recent years, withdrawn its handhelds from the world market, this company has kept updating its line but only introducing new models in Japan.
Still, while Sharp hasn’t introduced any of the clamshell Zauruses in the United States, companies like Dynamism buy them in Japan, convert them to English, and re-sell them in this country.
