"Thanks to our friends at Mobile Linux for pointing us to the fact that First International Corporation (FIC) is showing a Transmeta-based device at Computex this week."

"The FIC device is called the Aqua 3200 and uses the TM 3200 processor at speeds of 366MHz or 400MHz and includes 64MB of synchronous memory and 16MB of Flash stuff. It has a 7.5in TFT screen, with cursor keys and a stylus, as well as 3D audio. It also supports MP3. It has a PC Card slot, two USB ports, and infra-red connectivity."

"FIC's Aqua will cost around $600 or so, according to the firm. Much of that cost is due to the large LCD, although there are some indications prices of screens may drop later in the year. Plus, FIC and Transmeta will use PC Expo in New York later this month to really make a splash."
