Photos of Loox 610 direct from Fujitsu

An enterprising user over at FirstLoox.org has discovered pictures of the upcoming Loox 610 on Fujitsu-Siemens’ media server. This mostly confirms reports from earlier this week on the rumored new units.



PDAmill holding public beta of Anthelion

A while back we showed you screenshots of a vivid new space-combat game for the PocketPC under development by PDAmill. Now they have opened the doors, and are running a public beta test of Anthelion. I haven’t had the opportunity to play yet, but the screenshots look spectacular, and if the game is as good as it looks, it should be phenomenal.



Softfield plans MX-7 Linux PDA for Sepember

From LinuxDevices.com:

A brand-new Linux-based PDA is due to hit the market this September, at a price of $299 (USD). Softfield, which took on support of the Agenda VR3 following the demise of Agenda Computing, said it will release the entirely-new MX-7 in early Sep., 2003.  The device is based on an ARM 920T based processor running at 200MHz and includes Trolltech’s Qtopia GUI environment and PIM apps

As nice as it would be to have a mid-range contender in the Linux arena, I believe this one is dead on arrival. Besides the lack of any compelling features at the price point, the entire case and style of this thing screams “rock bottom remainder”, from the hideous case and toddler scribble, to the proprietary slot and lack of directional controls.
