Approximately a year or so ago my venerable (dating back to January 2005!) Sharp Zaurus SL-C3000 was beginning to show its age... and spontaneously re-booting on a random basis. As a result after some 16 years of (almost) paper-free, PDA-enabled existence I converted to using the Levenger Shirtpocket Briefcase and 3x5 cards!

With no pocketable replacement with a keyboard on the horizon, found a place still selling the discontinued Zaurus (Pulster) and bought a Zaurus SL-c3200 (yes, I had tried multiple possible replacements, including the UMID M1, Viliv N5, Dell Streak, and others... without finding something better)

Sad to say, the market seems to have mostly abandoned the pocketable, clamshell form factor 'close to full fledged' computer. Until something new comes along I guess I'll have to "settle" for the SL-C3200 in conjunction with a BB Torch 2 for applications requiring connectivity...
