CPEN and Linux: Techno-Tools for the Techno-Cool - page 4
Like a Kid at Christmas: Checking Out the CPEN
The CPEN 800 is a remarkable little device. It has a camera in one end that scans and recognizes text, and has 8 MB of RAM, a note pad, address book, calendar, dictionary--and the whole thing fits snugly in your hand. I've found it to be a great aid to collecting web addresses, taking notes ,and acting as a PDA. Through the magic of IR the CPEN and move data back and forth to your Linux laptop.
There are lots of possiblities to develop applications that would work well in the Linux environment. I think the open architecture, sophistication, and practicality of the CPEN perfectly compliments the Linux lifestyle.
