'A75' tease photos emergeBy Chris Williams. Published: 5th May 2004, 02:48:44 | Permalink | Printable
Answers (or better headline) on a postcard [Updated]With the Wakefield show being just over a week away, teasing photos of a possible new RISC OS powered solution have arrived at drobe.co.uk HQ this evening. The pictures, shown below, show a new machine in quite a sturdy yet shockingly radioactive orange coloured metal case that sports a RISC OS 4 licence sticker and several interesting looking connection ports.

A Windows less machine, perhaps?
Your guess is as good as ours. The photos, which show a machine labelled as the 'A75', originated from Stuart Tyrrell Developments, who also sell the A6 Windows-VirtualRPC PC. More details expected soon, although it's good to see that STD can afford such glamorous models and photo shoots these days.

Incidentally, RISCOS Ltd., developer of RISC OS 4, today added Advantage Six (also known as STD) to its list of authorised manufacturers, commenting, "Advantage Six Ltd will be using both full versions and special 'embedded' versions of RISC OS in its future products."
Advantage Six have said they'll be working closely with RISCOS Ltd. to develop new products, the first of which will be ready for Wakefield this month. Surprise, surprise.
