"There's been overwhelming interest from our users to dig for more information on the new Linux-based PDA from Samsung called the YOPY, so we've scoured the 'net in search of some clues, and here's our report."

"The YOPY is designed by a South Korean start-up called GMATE Co., Ltd. which is composed of developers from LG, Hyundai Electronics Co, and the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (KAIST). Their main business focus is developing mobile PDA style devices, putting their emphasis on the research and development of next-generation devices."

"The device was first code-named Chopin, but after some branding and pre-marketing efforts they settled on the name YOPY. The name is some Korean slanguage for "Young and Full Of Cash" I'm sure. =) After its debut at CeBIT in Hannover Germany, there has been tons of interest in the device on the Internet, fueled by the sheer number of users that believe in open-source development using the Linux platform."
