Dale over from Pocket PC Passion just found the following, not official announced Pocket PC at mobileplanet:

The Jornada 574 features the new 400MHz Intel XScale processor, the fastest available for Pocket PCs. The Jornada also comes with 64MB RAM, 32MB ROM, a color reflective TFT LCD display that supports 65K colors, and Pocket PC 2002 OS from Microsoft.
