After the YEPP here comes YOPI

This is going to be difficult. It's not easy to find a product category for this "machine". It started out as a MP3 successor for the YEPP (we featured first in April). Shown at the CeBIT, it sure can do more than just MP3. This is the first PDA that runs Linux!!

The YOPI has no wireless capability (yet), uses an 206 MHz ARM processor and features a 4-inch colour LCD screen, embedded HTML browser, MP3 player and Compact Flash slot.

According to Samsung future versions will feature a range of add-on devices, including a TV tuner, GPS module, wireless GSM modem and digital camera that will attach to the unit via its Flash slot. Bluetooth and voice recognition integration is also planned in future versions.

Price: $400 to $600,
         depending on feature set
