2002 Editors' Choice Awards

We present this year's winners and a few honorable mentions.
Product of the Year: Sharp Zaurus

Two words describe this past year: Zaurus Frenzy. We dig Trolltech's palmtop Qtopia environment, based on the popular Qt toolkit. It's got all the classic PDA stuff, such as address book and calendar, plus a selection of nifty games and good office and web software.

The Qtopia development boom owes a lot to the shining promise of the first Qtopia-based product, Sharp's Zaurus PDA, which offers all the hardware features you might want, including optional wireless networking, high-quality audio, a keyboard and a replaceable, rechargeable battery.

Our embedded Linux news archive for 2001 was full of companies committing to offer applications, services and training for Qtopia and the Zaurus. When you get one you'll know why.
