Cassiopeia E-200 is fitted with two slots for CF (Type II) or SD cards, and an optional PC card unit for wireless communications to provide wide area network connectivity (through CDPD, GSM and CDMA), local area network connectivity (through IEEE
802.11b) and personal area network connectivity (through Bluetooth). Users can access any of these networks while they are on the move to refer to, or update databases in their office, send and receive e-mail, and browse the Internet. By adding a
barcode reader or a GPS card, the Cassiopeia E-200 can be used for FFA applications such as shipment and inspection of goods.
Cassiopeia E-200 is now powered by Intel Corporationâ€™s IntelÂ® StrongARM SA-1110 processor and uses Intel StrataFlashÂ® memory. The combination of Intel StrongARM processors and the innovative Intel StrataFlash memory enables Cassiopeia E-200 users to
take advantage of the full benefits of Microsoftâ€™s Pocket PC 2002 OS and other multimedia applications.

mobile business solutions for enterprises. Currently, the company provides mobile data solutions to financial, healthcare, SFA and FFA markets. Last July, Casio strengthened its ties with iAnywhere Solutions, taking a direct stake in the company.
