There must be a mistake...

Cool, but can I have 99% off that price?

btw, it's in Canadian Dollars (CAD). Just use xe.com to convert to your local currency. Be prepared for the worst

Try N7S 2N5 as postal code.

The price is $2,523.41, but you can knock about 20% off of that to get the U.S. dollar specs. So you're only looking at a couple of grand or so, AND it ships in 2-3 business days. I've ordered six , if only because Sharp's handheld support has always been legendary. Can you tell yet that I'm still bitter about them selling the Zaurus Classic down the river?

How did you come across this?

Are you kidding? You ordered SIX at that price??

You do realize they go for around $100 CAD on ebay... brand new isn't worth 25 times

Yes, I'm afraid I was being ironic--and apologies to anyone who took me seriously. I don't need six of anything, unless it's beer. No self-respecting Zaurus Classic user would go for the Mobilon, anyway--even at ebay rates--since we feel that the Mobilon switch ruined the Zaurus' chances. Much like Psion users feel about the Netbook going to Windows CE.

Until I find a way to stop me doing that... consider yourself forgiven
Once I get my primary workstation installed back up, I'll move the "log-in" down into the new message are.

Or perhaps a nice, bright, in your face flash animation that sounds a klaxon to remind you you are in guest mode.


Anyway, £1131.75.
Not even the MobilePro 900 or Jornada 728 retailed for that, new and in their first week!!

Someones having a laugh.
I did see some shrinkwrapped CE1 based 320LX's in about 2000 retailing for £300.
There were 6 or so. All gone 2 weeks later!

There is always a gullible sap somewhere in this world.

Guess that's the appeal of the Clamshell.
