CMC Magnetics releases own PDAs

Taiwanese CMC Magnetics, known as the optical storage maker, released a family of entry-level PDAs, operating under the Penbex 1.3 OS from Penbex Data Systems, a kind of a Chinese Palm OS clone. Penbex and the concepts on it were announced at CeBIT 2001 as another PDA hardware platform. This time "for the most reasonable price in the history of PDAs". Wow! :)

In about a year CMC Magnetics purchased the license for the OS and released a whole family of Palm-like devices.

It includes four PDAs: EZ-860, EZ-861, EZ-870, EZ-880 with the similar features: 33MHz Motorola DragonBall, 8Mb RAM, 160x160 sensor LCD display, CompactFlash I and IrDA. The models differ by the amount of flash memory and lithium-polymer battery capacity. Besides, EZ-880 has color display.

Taiwanese novelties are rather thin (EZ-880 and 870 — 15 mm, EZ-860 14.5 mm) and feature the JogDial side control. The price of EZ products is still unavailable.

A bit later the same company announced a business-class Windows CE Pocket PC — PPC-550 (on the photo).

Its a standard inexpensive Pocket PC on the 206MHz Strong ARM SA1100, with 64Mb RAM and 32Mb ROM, color sensor display supporting 65 colors, IrDA, USB, CompactFlash II and SecureDigital (SD) slots, built-in mic and speaker, Li-Ion battery. The dimensions are 32x80x16 mm. The price is unknown as well.

The company plans to continue and release a modified version — PP-510.
