Oh, and it runs quite a lot faster!

Anyone from Psion care to comment on this matter?

And that's not a lot.
Thank you Psion, thanks for nothing !

Well - currently available palmtops have such capabilities, but in
future things may look different. Note that there are at least two
software products for Windows CE, that allow MP3 playback - one
produced by Casio, and second named MP3 Hum - I don't remember the
company name, but it is bundled with Jornada 430. This is sad, because
speaking of software development the EPOC platform seems to be loosing
momentum, compared to Windows CE. I recently tried to asses the
availability of computer emulators for both systems - Win CE is better
here, with emulators of Spectrum, C64, MSX, Gameboy, Chip8, PC/XT,
Palm Pilot - while for EPOC we have only PC/XT, Spectrum and
unfinished AppleII emulator - and practically no new development
project in this area . Similar situation for compilers capable of
running on Psions and producing native code - I have not heard of C
compiler, and such beastie exists even for Palm Pilot. Most of the
quality commercial software is produced by three, maybe four companies
(most importantly Palmtop BV I think) - in Win CE field the situation
looks very different.
Of course you can always say that EPOC has JVM, but this is even more
frightening. First of all, more and more programmers switch to Java
development for Psions - but the virtual machine is slow, memory
hungry, and what is probably most important - is not embedded in
machine's ROM (maybe in future models, I know - but currently not).
Windows CE may be worse operating system, but of that what I remember
MS-DOS was also worse than CP/M 86. Not saying about Macintosh and
Ah - by the way. And we still do not have an EPOC *palmtop* with
colour screen. I know - power requirements etc. - but when I go into
electronics store and see several WinCE models with colour screens
displayed next to Psion Series 5MX and MC218 with its gray screens -
well I do not feel well. That is not only the problem with the screens
here, but also with number of WinCE palmtop models from various
manufacturers - and remember that cloning allowed PC's win ten years
ago. I do not want this history repeated, but of that what I know we
only have three commercial EPOC palmtop devices - MC218, Series 5MX (I
do not count Revo since its also Psion product) and that organiser
from I think american company (I forgot the name). Poor Geofox
Think about it :)
