The Sharp NetWalker PC-Z1 smartbook is quite an unique device. It has 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.
Jenn over at Pocketables has unboxed the PC-Z1 now that it has been released and has a thorough unboxing, including some comparisons to other MIDs. You can check it out here.
Update: Pocketables now has a (lengthy) preview of the PC-Z1 up. Jenn is quite happy with the build quality and the optical mouse makes it easy to control. The touchscreen is a bit difficult to use given the sharp resolution on such a small screen (5-inches).
