High performance access to file storage

British computer and mobile phone distributor Hugh Symons Group is to launch a PowerPC-based JavaOS mobile NC next year. Symons did the port of JavaOS to PowerPC for Motorola earlier this year, and has a long – if not yet entirely lucrative – association with the chip, having launched its own range of PPC workstations a few years back. It has also positioned itself rather more successfully in the GSM mobile data arena, and – unusually for a channel company – maintains a software R&D operation, which has now produced the new NC and the subsidiary that will produce it, Concept Technologies. The NC will have a colour screen, 16 megabytes RAM, 10 megabytes flash, serial port and a PC Card slot, and is intended to be used in conjunction with a GSM phone. It will be fairly expensive initially, and typically could be expected to be used in conjunction with a corporate network, accessed via the HotJava browser. The flash memory does however provide sufficient local storage for applications to be run offline. ®
