The Zaurus SL-C3100 follows the SL-C3000. Obvious change is the color. The SL-C3000 is white while The SL-C3100 sports black. After the Sony PSP appeared more and more gadgets are black again and shun the Apple iPod white.
The SL-C3100 is more of a new packaging with slight changes compared to the SL-C3000 we reviewed last year than a new version.
Sharp promotes the support of TOEIC (Test of English for International Communication) as a major new thing for the SL-C3100. Also Golf lessons are featured. Well it is clear that the SL-C3100 will not be sold outside of Japan, which is also sadly true for the SL-C3000.
Besides that the screen is still the same and the PDA also features a 4GB drive. No pricing is mentioned yet, but the new Sharp goes on sale in Japan on June 24th.
More details in Sharp press-release (Japanese).
Sharp announced in March a slimmed down version of the Linux PDA without a 4GB hard-drive called the Zaurus SL-C1000.

iPhone 6 Plus Has Not the Best Smartphone Screen
The experts at DisplayMate have tested the new iPhone 6 Plus display. While it is impressive, it is not the best smartphone display on the market. Samsung is in the lead. Is it time for Apple to switch to OLED?
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
