Today is May 13th and the new Sharp Zaurus ROM may be released. I have been checking the Zaurus Devnet forums about every 5 minutes for the download, but no luck yet. It is only 7am so maybe when 9am PDT rolls around it will be up. I am pretty excited about the ROM update since it adds many features from the new SL5600 model, including Opera 6. I see there is also someone trying to get more than 10 people together to buy C700 devices for $495 each, which looks pretty sweet and I am tempted by the proposal.
I continue to follow the rumors around the 2200 and new CLIEs, but no news yet. I am finishing up my review of the Palm Zire 71 and think it is a decent device, but I would never personally buy one for myself.
