Not too much information are available yet but speculations are circulating through the net, that Tatung also plans to release a Windows Mobile-based UMPC look-alike Pocket PC. That's even more interesting, after the HTC Athena appeared first time and was confirmed a little bit later, since the original UMPC design was based on Windows XP but now, UMPC is used as synonym for high-end Pocket PCs.
While not to much information is available about the Tatung UMPC project, some photos surfaced which seems to be, nevertheless, from the last COMPUTEX in Taiwan.
Therefore it's speculated, that we will see and hear more at CES in Las Vegas, early January:

By the way - no, I haven't watermarked the photos with the::unwired logo and wonder by whom and why the photos were watermarked with the::unwired's site logo?

Cheers ~ Arne

You can install a lot of different java engines on windows mobile devices. So you can have java on windows mobile but just if you want it. Memory is valuable  wink

As Heinz said, you are free to install Java on Windows Mobile devices. In addition you have to keep in mind, that it is up to the manufacture if they put Java into the device by default. Some Windows Mobile ODMs and OEMs do, others don't and I have no idea what Tatung plans to do.

Yes, you are right but who cares for a prototype or whatever it is?
We have seen so many Photoshop'd product announcements and flyer just to figure out after the product launch, that the previous information/images were wrong. So I don't care (yet) what is shown on such a device. Also I haven't licensed the::unwired logo to Tatung but it appears on the screen as well. Should this be seen as an indication for co-branding? wink
