Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Samsung is soliciting OEM manufacturers for a ARM-based multimedia PDA running Linux. The device, designed by Samsung Electro-Mechanics (no, we don't know why either) is colour, allegedly does everything and looks jolly cute. But then prototypes usually do, don't they? According to Samsung it has an MP3 player, voice recording, MPEG, radio receiver, email and built in Web browser. It connects to the Internet via a mobile phone, and the feature list rolls onward. A personal information manager, dictionary, text editor, handwriting recognition software, all in a Palm Pilot style package of 128.8 x 83.5 x 19.9mm. If Samsung can actually get all of this stuff into the one box and working properly it'll be a triumph of integration, but we suspect this is more a case of it being a list of possible features OEMs might care to select from. MP3 and Internet access in your pocket is one of the most obvious killer apps for something like this, and seems to be pretty much what Diamond is planning for its Transmeta alliance. Samsung's pitch for the device can be found here. The site also includes details of various other wacky products. ®
