The New Pocket PCs

,----[ Quote ]
| That will change in 2009, according to Palm's vice president of smartphone 
| product marketing, Stephane Maes. The company is developing its own modern, 
| Linux-based OS, which will replace Palm OS by the end of the year. It will 
| have a flexible interface and a very easy development environment, and it 
| will focus on integrating personal information, Maes says.    


Exon’s Quran PDA Phone Boots Windows Mobile 6 and Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| It also runs both Linux and Windows Mobile 6.0. This is the genuine article, 
| the manufacturers repeat, the real PDA phone that can install applications 
| with a swappable OS:  
|     Please note that this is a Genuine PDA phone. Most other so-called 
|     PDA-phones advertised by other suppliers are NOT true PDA phones,butsmart 
|     phones only with a firmware interface similar to Windows Mobile.No 
|     application can be installed on these false PDA-phones and theOS cannot 
|     be altered. True PDA phones run on Microsoft Windows, Linuxor similar OS 
|     and all Windows / Linux applications can be installed.     



Rugged PDA available with Linux

,----[ Quote ]
| A value-added reseller of mobile computers and PDAs has ported Linux to a 
| ruggedized, "military-grade" PDA. SDG Systems is offering the "Nomad" from 
| Tripod Data Systems (TDS) pre-installed with Angstrom Linux and Qtopia PDA 
| Edition, and bundled with a toolsuite and build environment based on

| generation of motorola MOTOMING A1200 with enhanced features. 


Motorola E690 PDA phone with Linux on board 

,----[ Quote ]
| It seems that they are returning to the penguin with their next
| offering, the E690 PDA phone. Naturally, it rocks quite the slim 
| profile (what else would you expect given the relative popularity
| of the Q and the RAZR); in fact, its styling is eerily reminiscent
| of the SLVR L7, less the numpad.


Rugged PDA gains supported Linux option

,----[ Quote ]
| Embedded Linux specialist SDG Systems is shipping a Linux-ized version of
| a ruggedized, "military-grade" PDA from Tripod Data Systems (TDS). SDG's
| Linux port for the Recon-X is based on a 2.6.15 kernel, and includes
