LG this week rolls out one of the first CE machines ready for Microsoft's new 'Jupiter' version of the OS. The Phenom Express is going on sale in the US price $899, and includes a built-in software modem, IRDA port and claimed 12 hour battery life. It runs CE 2.0, and the ROM is flash upgradeable. The machine has 32 megabytes RAM and a 256 colour 640x240 screen, together with a VGA out port for use in presentations. At the price and the spec, it's effectively one of the most obvious manifestations of CE devices starting to blur into the Intel subnotebook space. In the US LG will be presenting it as the "ultimate mobile email device," and is including sign-ups for a large number of ISPs. Earlier this year at CeBIT however LG demonstrated a range of wireless Phenoms that were GSM-capable. So another ultimate mobile email device ought to be along RSN. ® Click for more stories
