Edgetech PC Edge Handheld
Edgetech has used one of the last days of the CTIA phone expo to introduce the PC Edge. Billed as the first handheld computer with "DSL speed," the device will depend on a built-in modem for an unknown wireless protocol (suspected to be a cellular technology like EVDO or HSDPA) and use the Internet for most of its functions: the company points to web-based desktop programs and storage and notes that its small comptuer will have the support for full web code that many other devices lack at its size.
Curiously, however, the company has opted out of mentioning hardware details, including the choice of processor, operating system, or other features. It also declined to provide a release date or price, suggesting only that the device will be available soon from the company's online store. More details should follow in the near future.
