Hitachi will have hand in devices

Hitachi officially announces that it will build a handheld computer based on Microsoft's Windows CE operating system.

Hitachi (HIT) has officially announced that it will build a handheld computer based on Microsoft's Windows CE operating system.

Windows CE is an operating system platform for mobile computing, communications, and entertainment devices that connect to the Internet and share information with Windows-based PCs.

Companies such as Compaq and Casio have already indicated they will release Windows CE-based handheld computers.

The Hitachi HPC will use the company's 32-bit SuperH RISC-based SH-3 microprocessor, one of the key processors for the Windows CE platform.

The new product will be marketed and sold by Hitachi Home Electronics's multimedia products division, based in Norcross, Georgia.

Pricing and shipping dates will be announced later, the company said.
