Mandriva Flash

Mandriva Flash

LiveCDs have proved a handy and secure way to try out Linux distributions for some time, but <a href="http://www.mandriva.com">Mandriva</a> has gone one stage further in the convenience stakes by putting its 2007 KDE 32-bit distro on a 2GB USB flash drive.

<p>Samsung is not a prolific producer of Windows Mobile devices. We reviewed its <a href="http://reviews.zdnet.co.uk/hardware/mobilephones/0,1000000685,39251280,00.htm">SGH-i300</a>, a Windows Mobile smartphone with a 3GB hard drive in February this year, and it has taken the intervening nine months for the company to release another Windows Mobile Smartphone in the UK. Pending network operator support, the <a href="http://www.samsung.com/uk/products/mobilephones/mobilephones/sgh_i320zkavod.asp">SGH-i320</a> is available from <a href="http://www.expansys.com/product.asp?code=130798&tab=2">Expansys</a> at an unsubsidised price of £365 (inc.

T-Mobile continues its long-standing relationship with navigation specialist ALK, and the MDA Compact III is available from free to £249.99 with ALK’s CoPilot navigation software and from free to £159.99 (inc. VAT) without it.
