"US-based Agenda Computing today launched a scheme to take on
handheld computing giants Palm and Handspring with the introduction
of a consumer-oriented palmtop device based on Linux."
"The 4oz device bundles all the key personal organiser functions
you'd expect from a handheld: diary, to-do list, contact manager,
email, calculator and so on, all of which can operate in parallel
thanks to Linux's multi-tasking functionality. And, shipping for
$149, it's priced right on a par with its main rivals."
"...character recognition probably won't be the VR3's key
selling point: it's more likely to find favour - at least among the
geek community - as a Linux box - it runs version 2.4 of the
kernel - onto which users can transfer open source Linux apps
compiled for the MIPS CPU. The VR3's graphics are based on the
XFree86 X Window server."
