"Despite a bumpy road to launch, Agenda Computing, producers of the Linux-based VR3 PDA, have announced they'll be launching the product as a consumer device at COMDEX Chicago next month. Another Linux handheld, the Yopy, is also currently in developer release, but if Agenda computing hits its April launch date, it will likely be the first-ever Linux handheld device available for retail purchase."

"According to the company, at release time there will be two models: the VR3 and VR3r. Both will have 16MB of flash RAM, support seven languages, provide support for communicating with infrared printers. The devices will come in three colors/case styles: slate blue, black, and transparent."

"The handhelds are expected to retail for $250 (MSRP)."
