[Updated June 19, 2002] Mizi Research (Seoul, Korea) announced earlier this week the near-term availability of a hardware/software developer kit for its [email protected] (pronounced 'Linu-ette') Embedded Linux distribution. The kit, known as the '[email protected] for Developer', is expected to begin shipping by the end of this month and will include a Korean-manufactured PDA along with a software development kit (SDK) for Mizi's [email protected] embedded Linux.

The PDA to be bundled with the kit is called the EnDA C3224. Jointly developed in Korea by iHNT and Wooyoung Telecom, the device is based on a 206 MHz StrongARM SA-1110 processor and has a 3.5-inch, 240 x 320 pixel full-color TFT LCD. Other standard hardware features of the PDA include 32M of RAM and 32MB of Flash memory, a CompactFlash Type II expansion slot, USB and IrDA interfaces, internal digital FM stereo radio, and a built-in speaker. A serially interfaced external keyboard will be offered as an optional add-on.

Developers will receive the PDA preconfigured with Mizi's [email protected] version 1.3 operating system along with various applications including utilities, PIM suite, and office programs. The utility software supports synchronization with Microsoft Outlook 2000/XP. The kit will be available in a choice of English or Chinese/English versions, at a price of $450 (USD).

The new Korean-manufactured EnDA C3224 PDA is expected to become available in production quantities starting in August 2002. (Note: The device shown in the above photo is a pre-production unit.)

Mizi Research plans to promote [email protected] PDA application development via its [email protected] developer website.

Developers interested in further information about the [email protected] PDA Developer Version, or wishing to reserve one of the preproduction units, are encouraged to visit Mizi's website.
