Already announced on CeBIT, now the Yakumo PDA alpha is hitting the market. Yakumo is the electronic device brand of Vobis,
the largest German PC retailer.
With this small and fast PC that almost fits into your pants pocket, you always have your data ready to hand. Whatever you need to know while you on the road - addresses, tasks, dates or e-mails - the pocket versions of Microsoft Word,
Excel and Outlook make these information quickly available to you. It is light as a feather (only 143 g) but extremely strong with its 206 MHz StrongARM processor. You can operate it up to 8 hours with a rechargeable battery. The powerful
LCD color display also allows you to use it outside.

So the Yakumo PDA alpha comes around with an Intel 206 MHz StrongARM processor, 64 MB RAM and 32 MB Flash-ROM. The touch screen will provides 64K colors. While the blank PDA alpha will accept SD cards only, an expansion sleeve is also
shipped with the device which will accepts CF-Cards Type II also.
With a size of 120,9 x 76,8 x 13,8 mm and a weight of 143 grams, the PDA alpha is pretty small and light, however it doesn't includes the Pocket PC typical navigation pad (which makes me wonder!).
However, the price is unbeatable today. The PDA alpha is available right now in all Vobis stores for â‚¬ 469,00 only and so it is today's cheapest available Pocket PC
