Casio to release Cassiopeia E-3000 in Japan (picture)

by Reads (5,507)

Casio gave up selling PDAs in the US a while ago, but we thought you might be interested in seeing what they’re up to. Their latest 400 MHz Pocket PC isn’t much to write home about though.

Casio is pushing a new high capacity battery that can last up to 30 hours. While this sounds great, I’m used to plugging in over night, maybe I’m in the minority though. There’s no WiFi or Bluetooth either and it’s actually pretty big. I don’t know what they’re doing, but here’s a translated spec sheet –
