We now make money for AmighaInc? Voq has partnered with Tao Group, the creators of intent, a multimedia platform now used by many of the world's leading OEMs in client products for home and mobile networks including Sony, JVC, Philips, and MyOrigo. Components of intent will provide Voq users with a multi media platform that supports Java and audio capabilities. Tao Group's MIDP 2.0 and CLDC 1.1 runtime solution provides the fastest virtual machine Java support, guaranteeing superior performance, quality, and speed. The Advanced Polyphonic Ring-tone Engine (APRE) supports MIDI, which provides the Voq Professional Phone with an industry leading 64 note polyphonic tone capability.

"Tao's partnership with Sierra Wireless extends our reach into the wireless and cell phone market with a cutting edge product like the Voq Professional Phone," said Francis Charig, Chairman for Tao Group. "By enabling the Voq Professional Phone with complete multimedia support, consumer and business users are now provided with one of the most highly functional and versatile Smartphones on the market today."

I don't believe AmigaDE runs on this version of TAO yet.

It runs TAO's intent, not AmigaDE.

Deleting this thread would be a good idea imho. Or we could bash Amiga Inc. for a change ;-)

Or we could ask Amiga Inc when, for god's sake when, are they going to get their act together, and update their software?

AmigaDE has fallen so far behind, that at this point, they will never have any costomers. If nothing is done, they are doomed to (continued) failure.

It would be a good start if we could actually download any of the AmigaDE software and run it on a WinCE PDA instead of just a desktop PC. Other than a couple of game packs this is unfortunately still not possible.

It always mystified me as to why the run-time engines were never released for Windows CE/PocketPC. Yet - I thought that was the whole point.

As in, the platform runs anywhere. If it runs in your 200x320 pixel box on a
Windows desktop, it'll run the same on your PDA. As such, why release runtimes
when all you need is a Windows box?

Amiga's fumble was not updating to intent 2.0 when Tao released it, as they
are now 18 months to 2 years behind on doing that, plus they never finished
all the cool features they promised to add to even intent 1.0 (which is
nothing more than a glorified way to port a JVM really quickly).

I don't think giving you a Windows CE version of the "Player" would have
done them much good.

Have you read the obfuscated disclaimer? That sounds like genuine Fleecy ;-)

Amiga should have upgraded to intent2 when it was released? So, can you enlighten us as to how long ago that was?

It would have given me an incentive to buy some DE software as I could have played it on my PDA. Seeing as the majority (all?) of the software is for PDAs it could have had a very positive effect. I suppose it doesn't really matter now.
