Colour is the keyword in describing Casio's latest version of its palm-size PC, the Cassiopeia, which now sports "vivid colour and powerhouse multimedia capabilities", says the company.
The Cassiopeia E-100, which runs on Microsoft's Windows CE 2.11 operating system, features a 16-bit active matrix TFT LCD, 131MHz processor, and 16MB of RAM and ROM each. A CompactFlash port provides an expandability option for memory, and other features such as a headphone jack, and microphone/speaker, are also incorporated into the handheld.
Standard software is shipped with the E-100, including Pocket Outlook, Voice Recorder and Note Taker. An additional Multimedia Pack ($149 RRP) is available, offering users the ability to play MP3 or Microsoft Audio files, and Casio movie files (which are limited to the size of memory on the handheld or CompactFlash cards). The pack also includes Palm Golf for up to four players, and the CSI Image Viewer, which supports the most widely used graphic image formats, says Casio.
The Cassiopeia E-100 is priced at $1199 RRP.
