Facts found on Acorn CybervillageBy Chris Williams. Published: 20th Jan 2003, 08:47:25 | Permalink | Printable
A new month, a new Omega deadlineImagine our shock when we checked Acorn Cybervillage this month and found the rather sensational news that the Microdigital Omega will apparently be released "within the next two weeks". Having reminded ourselves of what an Omega is and thus sweeping previous deadlines under the carpet, we prepared ourselves for the facts behind O'Cybervillage's reporting.
According to the veteran portal's News and Rumours section (nice contrast there), the editor of Archive magazine, Paul Beverley, has informed his readers that the long awaited Microdigital Omega will be priced at 1149 quid, will include a 1GHz XScale processor and be ready within 14 days. This is all, of course, from an undoubtable, reliable and anonymous source close to Paul at Archive. Acorn Cybervillage would appear to have quoted Paul as saying the Omega is supposed to be "a bit faster than the Iyonix". Golly, all this concrete evidence.
Incidentally, we were recently and privately informed of something very similar but you'd hardly expect us to make a song and dance over it, now would you?
