Another key feature is the USB Connectivity available through an attached cradle and optional PC card unit/host converter. This supports devices such as keyboards and a mouse.

“As a pioneer in mobile devices, Casio is committed to building a family of products that serve consumers and corporate users alike. The Cassiopeia E-200 is exciting because it meets the pressing need of enterprises for a high-performing mobile device that offers wireless communications and seamless server access, and therefore a more complete office environment”. - Yozo Suzuki, managing director of Casio Computer Co., Ltd.

Microsoft’s Pocket PC 2002 Software features powerful network connectivity that allows users to access files stored in servers via a virtual private network (VPN). This software is enabled for network connectivity through IEEE 802.11b, Bluetooth, CDPD (cellular digital packet data) and GSM (global system for mobile communications).

Cassiopeia E-200

  • 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 Corporation’s Intel® StrongARM SA-1110 processor and uses Intel StrataFlash® 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 Microsoft’s Pocket PC 2002 OS and other multimedia applications.
  • Casio is also committed to providing business solutions and web services to enterprises and mobile professionals. In 2000, it formed a strategic alliance with iAnywhere Solutions, Inc., the mobile and wireless subsidiary of Sybase, Inc., to develop 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. Jointly, the two intend to develop and offer next-generation solutions for mobile and wireless users.
