New Casio Pocket PC Japan only?
A while ago, Casio Japan introduced the consumer-market Cassiopeia E-3000, powered by a 400MHz PXA255 XScale processor, and using both a SD/MMC and a CF card slot. The device is said to have a very long lasting battery and a semi-transflective display. Unlike the Wistron-built E-200 that was sold in the US, the E-3000 is OEM-ed by Asus (and bears a bit of a resemblance to their NEC P300). -- Posted Wednesday, April 2, 2003 by chb
