looking for OEM handhelds manufacturers

Started by ymax February 21, 2004
I'm looking for OEM handhelds manufacturers, ie some
vendors which sell partially or fully assembled
handhelds computers on specification, to be put into
customized enclosures.
The ideal platform is a ARM (or x86) compatible
processor at 200/400 MHz, has a high quality touch
screen, 802.11 and Bluetooth working at the same time,
one host usb port and SD/MMC and/or CF expansion
capabilities.
The compatibility with Linux is also required.

Could anybody provide some pointers?
Thanks in advance.

There could be an opportunity to convince Sharp to enter the medium range PDA market again. The spec essentially is like a SL-5500/5600 device. Other contacts might be found through http://www.globalsources.com -- hns If you want to use a new (Macintosh based) application development kit using Linux, X11 and GNUstep for ARM processors, please consider myPDA (or http://www.dsitri.de/wiki.php?page=DigitalCompanion )

I have read in some forum about an USB-Host card in Compact Flash format that appears to work with the Sharp Zaurus. Could also work with other PDAs - as long as a kernel driver supports USB. hns http://www.dsitri.de/wiki.php?page=myPDA-Zaurus-Edition

There are two that I'm aware of, the CFU1U from RATOC www.ratocsystems.com and the Solar Express from www.twin-paradox.com Bob
