Wanted – light weight pda that does everything

TIPPINST – I am trying to decide on a light weight pda that has the following properties
1- Light weight with a keyboard
2 – supports real player, java
3 – GPRS, 802.11b, Irda, Bluetooth
4 – colour screen, camera
5 – fast boot up
Bernie uses a nokia communicator 9500 which fulfills most of these requirements but I am interested to see if there are alternatives out there.
A pda that caught my attention was the Sharp Zaurus sl-cl 1000. We have the original Sharp Zaurus here in TIPPINST and we like them.
The features are as follows
# 416MHz Intel XScale PXA270
# 64MB of SDRAM and 16MB of Flash ROM
# integrated 128MB User Flash
# Linux 2.4.20 (Sharp ROM 1.45 JP)
# 3.7inch 640 x 480 LCD with 65k colors (backlit)
# QWERTY keypad with a five-way navigator control
# Infrared port
# 1 SD, 1 CF slot (for WLAN, Bluetooth etc.)
# USB cable (can be used as an USB hard disk drive)
# Stereo headphone connector
# Syncs with Macintosh through ZMacSync, Linux and PC
# Weight: ca. 278g
# Dimensions: ca. 124 x 87 x 25 mm
# Battery: 3.7V, 1800mAh LiIon
# Operation time: approx. 7h
