Hewlett-Packard Co has turned to Vadem Inc, San Jose and adopted the VG230 highly integrated NEC Corp V30HL-core-based processor for handheld devices as the engine to drive its latest pocket computer. The $350 HP OmniGo 100 handheld multifunction organiser runs GeoWorks Inc’s Geos operating system and supports input from both pen and keyboard. Later this year, Mobile Telecommunications Technologies Corp’s Skytel will offer a new two-way wireless messaging service for the OmniGo, enabling users to connect the organiser to a SkyTel 2-Way pager. Intuit Inc is bundling a version of Pocket Quicken with the OmniGo 100 software. It includes 1Mb memory and a standard PCMCIA Type II slot plus a serial port for connecting to Windows and a printer. It has 3Mb of ROM and weighs 11.6 oz including two standard AA batteries and Lithium back-up battery.
