Ed. Note: The Cassiopeia is one of the platforms some handheld Linux variants and toolkits, such as TrollTech's Qt/Embedded, run on.

"Japanese consumer electronics company Casio has confirmed it will next week unveil a new member of its Casiopeia PDA family, this time based on Transmeta's Crusoe CPU."

"The Casiopeia Fiva is a sub-notebook machine, running Windows ME rather than CE, the OS of previous Casiopeia's. Casio hasn't said what speed the machine will run at, but reckons Crusoe gives Fiva six to nine hours' of continuous use on a single battery charge."

"The A5-sized machine sports a 8.4in 800x600 colour LCD, 100Mbps Ethernet, 56kbps modem, IEEE-1394 and USB ports, and PC Card and Compact Flash add-in slots."
