Yes.  Yes it is.  The keyboard is very nice. :)

Actually, I _got_ one.  Everyone who as invited to Sharps' developer
symposium (which was held the day before IWWW opened - Monday) got one.

They flew out folks from all over the country, and a few from Europe,
I think! :)

(And of course, folks from Trolltech and Opera were there, too... probably
at Sharp's expense)

Developer units (SL-5000) are $399.
Consumer units will be, $550, it sounds like (don't quote me.)

Consumer units will have 64MB RAM instead of 32.

Well, let's put it this way...  Compact Flash slot, for your GPS.
SD slot for your 128MB of MP3s.  MP3 player.  And a little screwhole in
the back for mounting.  Bwahahaha.
