The Letux project (http://www.letux.org) is happy to announce the first release of its commercial distribution of free software, aimed at off-the-shelf handheld devices.

Letux mission statement is providing a commercial distribution for existing popular handheld devices, with a focus on specific markets such as healthcare.

In the future, Letux aims to broaden the user base with personnal video player devices, game devices, and smartphones.

The first release of Letux Distribution is made for the Acer n30 and comes as a package of a preprogrammed SD card and an Acer n30.

This is the first commercially supported free software handheld that is available in Europe for less than 300 EUR, and the first commercially available GNU/Linux PDA that supports dual boot with the traditionnal PocketPC software though the simple exchange of a SD memory card, with an option to remove either operating system.

Letux n30 is sold online through www.handheld-linux.com.

The free software distribution provides:

* a very modern Linux kernel 2.6.14
* gpe 2.7
* X11R6
* glibc-2.3.90

Letux n30 provides standard personnal data management applications such as Calendar, Contacts, Notes, etc. and is prepared to provice Web connectivity through USB and Bluetooth.

Thanks to X11 support, is offers a faster display than most framebuffer based systems equipping other free software handhelds.

Developers and Users are welcome to use the forum and the bugtracker system installed at the Letux project home page: www.letux.org.

Letux is a project run by Externe Com and The Handheld Linux Shop. Externe Com is a privately owned consultancy specialised in Free Software technical issues. It was founded in 2001 in Toulouse, France. The Handheld Linux Shop is a privately owned online shop focussed on providing Linux handhelds to the European markets. It was founded in 2004 in Oberhaching, Germany.
