pocketables.net have published some preliminary material on a new device prototype from the well known music player company iriver which has all the hallmarks of a true-blue Handheld PC.

The new iriver Wing device clearly features a clamshell form factor, with sleeks modern looks, modern equipment and is stated to feature Windows CE as its release operating system.

The Wing's specifications that have emerged from CES are:

  • 2-megapixel camera
  • Optional: WiBro, DMB, DVB-H, ISDB-T
Pocketables have provided a small number of photos of the Wing on show at CES, however the device can clearly be seen to not be displaying Windows CE - although it may be using a Remote Desktop Connection from Windows CE across to a Windows XP system.
