Pocket PC Thoughts has a picture and a few details of a New Wireless Handheld coming from Hitachi. It will be the the first Pocket PC model to include a built-in keyboard. It also has an integrated digital camera. It runs on Sprint’s CDMA 1xRTT wireless network, allowing it to transfer data at up to 144 kbps, though 40 to 60 kbps is a more realistic, real world, speed.
At this point, details are still sketchy. It isn’t clear if it runs Pocket PC 2002 or Pocket PC Phone Edition. Exact size, weight, amount of RAM, availability, etc. are also unknown.
Sprint appears to be covering all the bases. It currently offers the Handspring Treo 300, which also makes use of the company’s PCS Vision CDMA 1xRTT wireless network. Sprint has been aggressively encouraging customers to make use of this new network. In October, it began offering unlimited access for just an additional $10 to any PCS Free & Clear Plan.
The picture was taken at last weeks GadgetFest in San Diego by Ryan from Juss Press.
