The Gamer's PDA?

Now THIS is a cool idea. CNNFN has the scoop on the Tapwave Zodiac, a PalmOS-based PDA geared towards gamers. Popular Mechanics has some information too, including a picture. The specs and the price are pretty impressive too. For $299 you get a 480x320x16bit screen, 32M memory, 200 Mhz Motorola ARM9 CPU, dual SD slots, ATI Imageon video, Yamaha audio, Bluetooth networking, two lithium ion batteries, and "rumble" features. For $399 you get 128M memory and a VGA digital camera. The whole thing's supposed to weigh 6 oz. It will play all PalmOS games, plus they have people porting games to it (including Neverwinter Nights and Doom II). Naturally, it will play MP3s too. Tapwave's website doesn't have much on it now. This is definitely one to keep an eye on.
