"There will be an exciting promotion/contest that we will be announcing later in the week with regards to AACE and the Entertainment Packs. We assure you, this will be a great deal of fun, and we look forward to introducing Amiga to several new customers who are currently using PocketPC and PocketPC Phone Edition devices." Bill McEwen wrote that a little while ago.
Can anyone tell us just how exciting the promotion/contest was ? Did any ANN readers take part ? It sounds as though it must have been fun, maybe someone has photos ?

Well, it hasn't happened yet of course
Im quite sure that, if they had run this
promotion already then we'd know about it.
Amiga Inc. are probably getting the AmigaOne/OS4
promotion out of the way before embarking on
another one :)
I for one am very excited about the direction Amiga Inc
seem to be taking. Thanks to Bill and Fleecy for all
of their hard work.

Amiga needs to chuck alot of this *fun* stuff at people , it gets people interested. Maybe they should also get a sponsored link on Google so when people search PDA , Pocket PC etc they get informed of a rather interesting tech. coming to these markets/devices ... I don't see why thendic don't get a DE license for their pocket Peg too :)

Mmmm, a "smart" guy. Hmm, why doesn't he teach us how to do a straight port of
something written in 68k ASM and tied in a specific hardware architecture to
PPC :)
