Sharp have done their part for this year’s Ceatec. With the revelation of the NetWalker, I’ve already done my share of getting to know what to gift my geek cronies this holiday season (plus the import from Japan if that may be). The NetWalker comes in as a smaller-than-usual notebook with a 5 inch touchscreen, Ubuntu OS (nice!), USB, Wi-fi, 4 GB memory, microSD expansion and a battery that has enough juice to last 10 hours.
The Sharp NetWalker is set to be priced at about 44,800 Yen (~$500) and will be expected in Japan by the end of October. I seriously hope this one gets more global.
