If looked at the date you would notice it's been posted on 3/30/2001, that's one day before the partnership announcement. Of course the couldn't mention Amiga, because they didn't know.

At the end of the article, it says that the propriatoty OS will be changed for the Linux based one for the US (and Europe)market. IIRC this is not due for launch until late summer.

Sharp Zaurus Review at CNET : Comment 5 of 7ANN.lu

I like the claims of Sharp for its Zaurus....I mean, it does
MP-3, and MPEG-4....e-mail, etc....If AmigaDE gets a foothold
on Apps there, where else could that lead? If lots of AmigaDE
apps run there, some other PDA manufacturer might want to get
the stable of AmigaDE apps. NO?
I have been hoping for some type of handheld device that has all
capabilities of desktop....this would be very cool...
IF Amigas strategy is to get its OS onto different devices, and
the desktop can handle all of its device specific incarnations we
could have a very robust computer system, and seamless integration
of different data streams is not such a dream after all...
We will see one way or another.

Today i asked a colleague about the Zaurus. Machines branded this name are available
since about 1994 and are very famous here in Japan. According to him Zaurus is as popular
as Palm is Europe (and maybe America) - Sharp is a kind of a market leader here!
The device itself is really neat - it feels like a Palm V and seems to be of high quality.
There are massive advert campaigns running on television and in department stores.
I would have liked to toy around a little bit more with that nice thingy, but as all text and
menus are in japanese it is a hard thing to to and not much fun.
I could imagine buying one and have AmigaDE running on it :) The price btw. was at 49.800 Yen
(plus 5% tax), which is a discount price according to my colleague - perhaps to push sales of
the newly released device...

Since the beginning of the year it is possible for japanese Zaurus owners to
download a beta Version of intent. There is also a screenshot of intent running
on the Zaurus with featuring the one and only Boing Ball, dated February, 13
(or even before?).
Thanks to Milan Polle on csam for posting the link.
The release of the Zaurus in Europe and the US is scheduled for end of the year
(when AmigaDE arrives, too..), IIRC.
Ciao, Alex
