 Quest for PDA Utopia: Qtopia?

Linux Devices tells us about the Qtopia.

"And then, just as I was about to give up on my mission, Sharp came through with its Zaurus SL-5000D, a stylish, light, Palm-shaped device with a tiny pull-out keyboard, impressive hardware and a very reasonable price. And the best part: it is based on open-source embedded Linux. Trolltech, the company behind Qt, developed a windowing system and graphic user interface for Zaurus, called Qtopia, from scratch. To my satisfaction, I found that Qtopia provides a high-level graphical interface on top of Qt/Embedded, which directly interfaces with the framebuffer hardware device. Qtopia also provides an application layer with several services for application development. It was a dream come true and a neat present wrapped in one."
