Advanced Micro Devices takes the wraps off its cheekily named Athlon 4 chip-at 850 MHz, 900MHz, 950MHz and 1GHz--and unveils its new mobile Duron processor too. AMD's No. 4 chip makes its PC debut this month in a Compaq Presario laptop. It's a thumb in the eye for Intel, which won't squeeze a Pentium 4 into notebooks until 2002.

   Palm starts price war

from the dept.
US handheld computer maker Palm has effectively halved the price of its new Palm VIIx. A $100-reduction on the US retail price could herald a sea change in the way connected devices are sold. At the beginning of the year the recommended price was $299. Since February the company has been offering a $100 rebate to anyone paying for a connection to the Palm.net service, effectively bringing the price down then to $199. The rebate is to be offered until the end of the year. The latest reduction brings the effective price to $99.

   Unwilling to pay by mobile

from the dept.
As the first m-commerce Coke automats and parking solutions are launched in Scandinavia, Forrester and Kearney have done some rethinking on m-commerce.Their prediction is that mobile phone users neither can nor will pay over the phone. The telecom analysts were pretty optimistic about m-commerce during 1999 and 2000. This year however, has brought about a more sceptical mood. Despite retailers'enthusiasm for mobile payment, consumers don't want it, providers can't offer it, and technology can't support it, according to a new report by Forrester Research.

NTT Docomo offers a new Data/Music mobile device from Panasonic. The Picwalk features Music Playback and Data Services over 64kbit/sec. It does not feature voice services, which is strange in my mind. This is still not the ueber device.
