Zaurus Software Reviews

The Zaurus SL-5500 PDA has quickly become a popular device among the Linux community. With 64MB of RAM, a small keyboard, Intel StrongARM SA-1110 206MHz processor with Embedix Linux, Qtopia and Jeode JVM, it's not suprising the device has been in demand.

The device also has captured the imagination of its users. Hardware projects such as building an external speaker for the Zaurus, have demonstrated the inventiveness of Linux users. A range of accessories are also available, not limited to a Digial Camera Card, Battery Charger, Docking station, and compatible Wireless Lan, Ethernet, Modem and CF/SD cards.

Software developers have been quick off the mark writing hundreds of programs for this tiny PDA, many of which are free to download. With an increasing user base, companies have also been releasing commercial programs for the Zaurus. The purpose of the "Zaurus Software Reviews" is to review this commercial software, so that our readers can make an informed decision about what to buy.

We will also be shortly launching a separate section covering free Zaurus software. If you would like to contribute a review, please send it for publication to the webmaster.

Reviews will be published in the order they are are written. If you have any comments about the reviews, you are encouraged to post them to our General Forum.
