    JUST ADDED - The US Premier of The TIQIT eightythree Computer

    You've seen it on Slashdot, and Two Mobile now see it for the very first time at SDForum!

    A Pint-Sized PC That Runs WIN XP or Linux

    The Tiqit eightythree, the first computer you can use while walking that combines the portability of a handheld with the functionality and software compatibility of a Windows/Linux/UNIX PC, will have one of it's first US demos at The Software Development Forum Security and Wireless Special Interest Group (SIG). Previously considered impossible to engineer, let alone mass-produce, the Tiqit eightythree is not a concept product. Instead, Tiqit has built a fully functioning x86 handheld device, designed specifically for enterprise use and immediate production.

    The Tiqit eightythree will be presented by Ian Blasch, CEO of Tiqit Computers. Ian served as an officer in the US Air Force, led engineering teams that developed leading edge technologies in the fields of ballistic missile countermeasure design and air traffic control, graduated from MIT with a BSME, holds an MBA/MSE from Stanford University, and an MSME from Cranfield University (Marshall Scholar).
