[Updated Oct. 26, 2004] — has published a page of specifications and a page of photos about a new Sharp Zaurus clam-shell Linux PDA. The website accepts pre-orders for the Sharp Zaurus SL-C3000, priced at $749 with a 1-year warranty. It also sells older Sharp Zauri, such as the SL-C700.

Although Sharp appears to have stopped distributing its Zaurus Linux PDAs in the US, the devices are still available from a number of companies that convert the PDAs to English and sell them internationally. Other possible sources for the new SL-C3000 with English software include Brighthand, Dynamism, Nippon-Export, and others.

The SL-C3000 is expected to launch in mid-November in the Japanese market, and will be the first Sharp Zaurus to include a hard drive. It will ship initially with a 4GB Hitachi hard drive.

For complete specifications, and lots of photos of the SL-C3000 in “English” mode, visit the site.
