STD mulls WinXP PDABy Chris Williams. Published: 28th Jul 2004, 19:07:44 | Permalink | Printable
It can run VRPC-Adjust tooSTD is currently considering whether or not to go ahead with a retail version of its WindowsXP powered PDA, that also runs VirtualRiscPC-Adjust. The compact sub-notebook, dubbed the A5, is currently a "proof of concept/technology demonstrator/development platform for a customer", according to STD.
The news of the A5 was broken in an exclusive preview in this month's RiscWorld magazine in a fairly impressive scoop, which probably has nothing to do with the overlooked fact that it's edited by Aaron 'VirtualAcorn' Timbrell.
The processor of the device is omitted from the online specification, although the highly portable unit boasts a 8.4" TFT display, 40G hard disc, 256M of RAM, USB, network interfaces, a built-in camera, and a memory card reader all inside a 240 x 180 x 25mm case.
