|=| At TheRegister have been rumours[2] about SHARP bringing new
    Zaurus Linux PDAs to Europe finally. Nevertheless TriSoft and Xtops.DE make
    also the SHARP SL-C760 available in Europe without official
    assistance from SHARP[3].

|=| The Zaurus Synchronization Reverse Engineering Project[4] has
    released a first issue of a tool to get open access to the PIM data. While
    the Unofficial Zaurus FAQ gets new maintainers and location[5]. Thanks
    to Bill Kendrick[6] who started the wellknown FAQ. A whitepaper from
    IBM explored how to pilot a model plane with a Linux PDA[7].

    out the new drivers by LinuxAnt[8]. You may find more tips and tricks about
    getting to run internal modems on Linux laptops at TuxMobil[9]. To support
    special keys, LEDs and extra ACPI features of ASUS laptops Julien Lerouge
    has released a new issue of `acpi4linux'[10]. A survey of other methods
    to get these features to work on different notebooks is included
    in a dedicated chapter of the Linux-Mobile-Guide[11].
