The only way to get this Linux PDA with VGA screen is to import it. That’s just what this reviewer did.

 As a longtime user of the HP200 and its predecessors the HP100 and HP95 (since the late 80s), I have been looking for a replacement for these seriously obsolete machines. A PDA which would keep the advantages of a useable keyboard, a real operating system (like the HP’s DOS) with wide software choices, while giving me some of the new PDA plusses of a color backlit screen, smaller size, faster chips, and better link to my desktop PC.

The HP had an active user community up to about the mid- 90s, and my machine was double-clocked, had a 32MB internal memory upgrade, and a 160MB PCMCIA card. But not much is being written for DOS these days and software to connect to newer Windows PCs was slow. So when I saw the report from Judie and Julie late last year of their sighting of the Linux-based Sharp Zaurus C700 at Comdex, I called Dynamism and got on the list for their English language port of this maybe Japan-only machine. Mine came about a week and a half ago, and despite some limitations and remaining Japanese language issues I am delighted with it.
