"Amiga Incorporated, a pioneer in the development of multi-media
and content, today announced a long-term partnership with Sharp
Corporation, a worldwide developer of innovative products and core
technologies in electronics, in which Amiga will develop content
for next-generation Sharp handheld computing devices."
"In March, Sharp announced its plans to market the Zaurus PDA in
the United States and Europe as one of the world's first
Linux-based handheld device. The Linux operating system is gaining
wider acceptance in the computer server market because its
underlying code is freely distributed on the Internet. Easily
adaptable for different hardware devices, the Sharp handheld will
be able to run software written in Sun Microsystems' versatile Java
software language that supports different operating systems."
"In this partnership, Amiga announced that its developer
community would either develop new content or adapt existing
content for PDA applications, using their reputation for innovation
and leadership in gaming, 2D, 3D, animation, video, and music
applications. Amiga-developed content can be downloaded directly
through wireless networks, using desktop computers, or ported
directly into the new device."
