$699!? Wow, that's crazy - I was able to get a Zaurus at my local Staples
this past weekend for $500, which is the standard retail price, AFAIK.

Yes, it's a pricey unit, but IMHO well worth it. I feel it's well above PDA
class - more like a mini-laptop. It's got several features that make it worth
the price -

"Blackberry" style keyboard
a real command line - with a bash prompt!
SSH/SSHD available
real TCP/IP networking, via compact flash LAN card, CDPD or 802.11 expansions

I hear tell of other nifty applications such as an httpd server, sniffers,
python, portscanners, already has netcat, telnet, ftp, opera 5....

Did I mention the bash prompt?
