Intrinsyc Software, Inc. today announced Microsoft Corp. is one of the first customers for its next generation wireless handheld reference design, the MicroPDA.
It supports Microsoft’s Windows CE .NET operating system, the Microsoft Smartphone 2002 software, and the Microsoft Windows Powered Pocket PC 2002 Phone Edition software, as well as multiple microprocessors such as Intel’s newest chip, the PXA250. The MicroPDA features multiple communication, networking and peripheral support options including a color high resolution Touchscreen display, audio, web camera, ‘always-on’ Internet connectivity, and more.
It looks pretty darn sharp to me, although I’m not sure how “micro” it is. The 4 inch screen is on par with other Pocket PC’s so it must just be marketing hype. There’s also no word if this design will ever make it to market. It seems right now, they’ll primarily use it for testing as it supports a variety of processors and operating systems in one package. Here are a few more pictures for your enjoyment!
