Sharp’s 5-inch PC-Z1 smartbook certainly seems to be an interesting device with good specs. This includes a 5-inch touchscreen (1024 x 600) display, 10-hour battery life, 4GB flash storage and a microSDHC slot. It also runs a full desktop edition of Ubuntu 9.04 and has a full QWERTY keyboard.
A number of hands-on videos of the device in action have appeared that are worth a look. This includes run through of the Ubuntu Linux interface. It’s unknown whether Sharp plan to ship the PC-Z1 to western shores, but while you wait to find out check out the videos after the break.
