The story I have bought a Sharp Zaurus SL-C760 PDA from Dynamism Inc some time ago. It is a very nice machine, more like a miniature laptop than a PDA. It has a large (640×480) display and good keyboard. I set up the cross-compilation environment on my desktop PC and I am slowly collecting and… Read More »
