Sharp Netwalker is a 5-inch ARM-based netbook

Posted on Monday, August 31 2009 @ 17:31:30 CEST by

Sharp has introduced the Netwalker, a new Ubuntu 9.04 based device that fills the space between smartphones and netbooks. What makes this device interesting is that it features a 5" touchscreen with a 1024 x 600 pixel resolution, a pretty large resolution for such a small display.

The Sharp Netwalker PC-Z1 measures 161.4mm x 108.7mm and is just 19.7mm thick when closed. It weighs only 409g and features a ARM Cortex A8-based Freescale i.MX515 800MHz processor, 512MB RAM memory, 4GB SSD, SDHC memory card slot, 802.11b/g WiFi and a tiny 68-key keyboard. It's not a very powerful system, but due to the low power consumption it should offer up to ten hours of battery life.

The Sharp Netwalker will be avaialble in white, black, and red models. Availability is slated for the end of September in Japan, it's unknown if other parts of the world will get it.
