The saddest thing about being a gadget writer is the lust you feel everyday, without the chance of fulfillment. It’s a lust that’s compounded by the fact that even if I had the money to buy any of these products, most of the time I wouldn’t even be able to. Why? Because we’re technologically retarded in America is why.
Take the SL-C3000. It has everything you’d want in a PDA, and then some. Check this out: 4 GB Hitachi internal HDD, 3.7″ VGA swivel-screen, Intel Xscale PXA270 (416 mHz), 64 MB RAM, 16 MB flash ROM, 1 CF slot, 1 SD, IR port, Integrated speaker and 3.5 mm headphone jack.
It’s Linuxed. It’s gorgeous. But. It’s 819$. Through an importer. And why? Because we pretty much kicked Sharp’s PDA business out of here, along with Sony’s and Toshiba’s.
Lovely stuff people. Just lovely.
