"LinuxDevices.com's Rick Lehrbaum was treated to a sneak
preview of Agenda's new Linux-powered PDA, which will be introduced
tomorrow at LinuxWorld Expo in San Jose, CA. Lehrbaum was so jazzed
about this exciting new device with Embedded Linux inside, that he
rushed right back to his office to file this sneak preview
story. Lehrbaum writes . . ."
"The VR3 offers convincing evidence of just how quickly Linux
has transformed the embedded systems world, and how far that
transformation has progressed."
"Wow! It's a real computer, in a really tiny package. I mean,
this isn't some stripped down subset -- it's got the memory and CPU
resources to run real programs, save data reliably (even if the
batteries run down) -- and its powered by a genuine multi-tasking
Linux kernel. Hey, you could even run a (small) website on it!"
