Deal with Ericsson shows Microsoft has 'thrown in the towel' on Windows CE, Psion claims
A mobile version of Linux being developed for handheld PCs such as the Psion Series 5 and GeoFox is being earmarked to include Bluetooth code, piling more pressure on Microsoft's CE platform.
"It takes me back to a year ago when people said Windows CE devices were in competition with Psion." - Microsoft's Anne Mitchard on suggestions that the Palm PC and USR's PalmPilot are a little bit too similar.
Psion will take the battle to the Windows CE gang next week when it is expected to announce a new line of its huge-selling handhelds.
Psion is hoping to rain on the Windows CE parade after publishing a Microsoft-bashing manifesto.
Emulating Psion, Microsoft plans its Windows CE handheld computer operating system to embrace a gamut of embedded applications. Big Green envisions CE being used in industrial automation systems, point-of-sales terminals and telecommunications devices.
Hewlett-Packard is to go head-to-head against new releases from palmtop rivals Psion and US Robotics by releasing a Windows CE-based line, according to US reports.
