Hi. Yes, the Pet has been delivered, shipped and sold out. Now there's a new model, the Leo, which is better crafted than the Pet and less expensive.

So there's no emulation of CBM 8bit computers?


Good point. If it's called the PET that's a direct allusion to one of the early 8-bit machines.

Indeed, it could be said, that it should be running Microsoft and be a Windows phone. Since Commoodre computers ran a Microsoft OS.

The Amiga wasn't exactly a Commodore when you think about it and so Microsoft was relegated to a BASIC program on disk. Downgraded from being an OS.

Commodore's compuyers also ran GEOS which had nothing to do with MS. As a former Windows Phone user, I'd frankly say nothing should ever run such a poor excuse of a mobile os.

The embedded version of GEOS (For PCs - called breadbox) was actually licensed to Nokia for its phones.

More legal paperwork thrown at C=Holdings B.V. and shell company Polabe NV from CBM.

July 31, 2017

The argument is still about lack of use of the trademark, which we've heard before.

HI

No reference to the history of Commodore on the website. It is just a name now means nothing. Bet the phone don't even come with Vice.

Apologies again for being late. Too many Commodore and Amiga "aspirations" to keep up with:

Request for extension by C=Holdings B.V. and Polabe Holding N.V. to euipo, granted, and notice of same sent back to the applicant (CBM Smartphone people).

Source under correspondence

@WolfpackN64

That may be so but GEOS wasn't on the main kernel ROM chips. Okay in this case MS-OS was in the BASIC ROM. Either way still inside the machine as standard.

Windows makes a poor mobile OS? I wouldn't want Windows following me every where. LOL.

I use a Windows laptop, so I guess we differ there.

And BASIC in rom was only a feature of some PCs (notably the original IBM PC), but calling it an operating system is stretching things.
And most PC only have a rom BIOS.

Windows to me is a tool. I use it only when I need too. It's locked up the rest of the time.

But I was thinking of machines like the C64 WRT BASIC in ROM. I didn't know it was in the IBM PC. Shocker. Were they trying to make it a home computer?
