"The device, which has no wireless capability, uses an ARM processor and features a 4-inch colour LCD screen, embedded HTML browser, MP3 player and Compact Flash slot. According to a company spokesman, future versions will feature a range of add-on devices, including a TV tuner, GPS module, wireless GSM modem and digital camera that will attach to the unit via its Flash slot."

"Samsung is also planning Bluetooth and voice recognition integration in future iterations."

"This is the first in a new range of PDA devices from Samsung, all of which will be based on Linux. Samsung believes that the open source approach is vital for the device to attract developers to write applications for consumers. "With Linux, anyone can write applications for you," said the spokesman, "This is the advantage against the proprietary route of Windows CE -- Linux is freely available to anyone."
