Home Shopping Network, of all places, has the Sharp Zaurus SL-5500
Linux-based PDA available for $198 ($169 after 15% coupon).

If you haven't bought a Zaurus for its price-tag, this is probably the deal
you were looking for.  (Last I saw, last week, the SL-5500 was still $400
at Fry's in Sacramento.)

On a most-likely-related note, LinuxDevices.com has news that the
newer model, the SL-5600, is shipping.  It has a much larger batter (1700mAh),
real external speaker and mic, twice the flash (32MB), twice the RAM (64MB)
and a 400MHz X-Scale CPU (vs. 206MHz Strong-ARM).
