SNI to hop on Win CE bandwagon

Siemens Nixdorf is the latest electronics giant to hop on the Windows CE bandwagon.

The German firm could use the Microsoft operating system in products as diverse as mobile phones and handheld computers.

Microsoft recently announced a series of firms including Philips and Casio will produce 'Palm PC' designs that closely resemble 3Com-US Robotics' PalmPilot pocket computer. Palm PCs will use a slimmer version of Windows CE 2.0.
