This year?s Cebit looks like being a stage for the major Windows CE device makers to show off their wares.
Casio is planning to unveil two new Palm-sized PCs. The one that will attract the most interest will undoubtedly be the Cassiopeia E-100, a 16-bit handheld that will be making its first public outing at Cebit.
Casio will also be displaying its 16 Mb Cassiopeia E-15 which is being touted as the answer to the Palm V. It is built around a 69 Mhz NEC processor.
Another big player, Philips will also be going into the colour palm-top arena at Cebit with a new version of its Nino. Philips claim the colour version will provide a longer battery life via its passive display and lithium-ion battery.
Hewlett-Packard, however is opting for a smaller form factor at Cebit with the Journada 680, an enhanced version of its HP 600 series. It is built around a 133 Mhz processor and weighs in at 1.1 lbs.
