Editor’s Note: The original report that stated this device will run Windows Mobile 5.0 was in error. It will actually run Windows CE.


There’s good news and bad news coming from Korea-based Tinnos.

The good news is that this company is bringing out a handheld running Windows CE 5.0 that will include a 30 GB hard drive and a 4.3-inch screen. The bad news is that it’s currently only slated for release in Japan.

The Blufin, which is obviously intended as a mobile multimedia player, will have a 3.4 mm stereo headphone jack and a USB 2.0 port for quickly transferring large files.

It will also include a 2-megapixel camera.

Tinnos 30 GB HandheldTinnos says that this handheld’s 1.8 inch hard drive will be able to hold about 20 movies or 5,000 songs. If that isn’t enough, the Blufin will also include an SD/SDIO slot for additional storage.

This device will use an Au1200 processor from AMD  and include 128 MB of RAM.

It will not come with any wireless capabilities built in, but these can be added through the SD/SDIO slot.

Unfortunately, its screen resolution is not known at this time.

Physically, it will be 5.2 inches wide, 3.0 inches tall, and 0.9 inches thick (131 mm x 76 mm x 22 mm). It will weigh 7.0 ounces (200 g)

This Windows CE device is expected to be available in July for around $600.
