Perhaps its on special because of the newer Zaurus 5600 is out; this has
an Intel Xscale 400 processor instead along with a few other additions.
Its listed here:


What happened to the Zaurus with the twistable keyboard? Seems to have
disappeared and not having much luck with finding information on it.

Fry's is an interesting place to go, if you know how to find deals as one
can pay much more than you'd find online. Recently had a browse through
their graphics card (currently have a geforce 2 GTS 32MB, this has proved
to be a great workhorse), but was not impressed with price/selection. Even
the Zaurus's boxes seemed like they had been thrown around too...
