Starting this holiday season, consumers in the U.K. will be able to purchase a Tapwave Zodiac, a gaming-oriented handheld that runs the Palm OS.
“Right out of the gate, European interest in the Zodiac has been strong, from consumers and media to distributors and developers,” said Byron Connell, co-founder of Tapwave. “The company is now ready to unveil our multimedia console in other markets, starting in the U.K. and then expanding from there. We are looking forward to starting a relationship with consumers and distributors worldwide.”
To accelerate expansion, Tapwave has recently hired a Director of European Sales and a Director of International Operations. The company has also retained the services of a UK-based PR and marketing firm.
The company plans to expand to Asia sometime in the future.
The Zodiac has been available from the Tapwave web site since last year, and has been in CompUSA stores since earlier this summer.
