@ Lanza

Nothing interesting!! Dude how wrong can you be.. If we try and stick souly to a desktop market we can kiss ourselves goodbye.

The future is smaller, the devices are gonna be specialised - who knows what deals they are doing - but if you can leverage - no DOMINATE this "small device" market you can use that to develop Desktop momentum. I imagine income from this will be ploughed back into OS development and we may finally see that hardware independant OS scaleable to run on anything with a processor!

@ Coder

I'm willing to wage that bucket of yours is like a Russian Doll - and you just have another bucket under it

Now how much is a ticket to the sates... bet its gonna be bloody expensive!

@ MikeB:
This is great news:
Look forward to Audio and Video..hope it gets pulled together!


@ Bobson:
I agree and with Eyetech pressing the server market as well.... the name "Amiga" could be in several markets besides the desktop and that could mean several income streams.

A very good thing indeed!

Oh dear. I see history repeating itself. A new owner of AmigaOS, touting the mobile device market. I wonder if history will continue to repeat itself:

1. Announcement that AmigaOS is "effectively dead as a platform" and it will be discontinued, because a mobile OS is the Way Forward.

2. Make lots of announcements over 3 years involving lots of big companies that all come to nothing.

3. Bring in some creature to act as a cult hero, who invents buzzword, and that legions of fans can cling to his every word...

Very unlikely seeing as ppl are already useing the desktop version.

Not fair to pre judge new owners that had nothing to do with the bad things in the past.
Im sure you would never buy anything from anyone involved with Phase5 in the past.

A quick search at Airline Consolidator is showing the following rates:

Frankfurt to Sacramento
1,100 - 1,300 USD

London to Sacramento
800 - 1,100 USD

Amsterdam to Sacramento
900 - 1,300 USD

Melbourne to Sacramento
2,000 - 3,000 USD

These rates are for a departure on the 23rd and return on the 26th. If you travel on the weekend, I'm sure the rates woud be lower. I'm also sure that a travel agent could help with better rates. I would also hope that the weak US dollar would mean that these rates would be pretty low in your currency.

@BigBentheAussie:
Anyone care to speculate what this bit is about, "the next generation of mobile communication chip sets"?

It can't be anything else than the ECLIPSE !

What? AOS goes Mobile Phone?

Forget it!!!!

R.I.P. AMIGA and AOS!

I want an Amiga for my Desktop and the good old AMIGA AOS.

Why this mobile phone crap?

The mobile phone market is up to 90 % in Symbian OS hands.
mobile phones with PALM aren't flexible enough and a big company like MS can't even do right functioning mobile phones or it's OS (Win CE).

Symbian OS is as great, true multitasking and flexible as AOS and rock stable. i use it everyday with my PSIONs. Everyday new programs are ported over from PSION to Symbian phones. There are at least 6000-10000 PSION progs (they exist since the 80s).

All the big mobile phone companies do sell Symbian Smart phones.

To all these phones OSs now came 4 weeks ago LINUX with QTOPIA (ZAURUS) GUI.
The Chinese and Asian market want's LINUX phones because there are no royalties to pay.

So what the hell is AOS doing in there?????
OK AOS has small footprint and is fast, but so is SYMBIAN and the microLINUX.

The only way I see it is the final death of AMIGA!
Do you remember even Amiga Inc. said something about AmigaDE in mobile phones.

Hey AOS is about desktop AMIGAs not about gimmicks for your pockets.

KMOS whoever /whatever you are? THANK YOU for BURYING the AMIGA 4E4.


Great news from a country who is celebrating it's anniversary.

I realize now "why Grasshopper won't release PageStream 5 for AOS4?" What shall I do with a great DTP prog on my mobile phone.

OK I will definetly switch over to MACs: Saw the future with MAC OS X Tiger. TFT Screens 30" big, RSS in fast browsers, super fast and mega cool search function troughout the whole OS.
Even the complete GFX/VIDEO realtime FX functions from progs like Photoshop are integrated into the OS, so that everyone can use them in his programs!!!!

They are years ahead of Windows. And with the decision to make of AOS a gimmick OS, we do loose the very few remaining AMIGA programers: PageStream, ImageFX, ArtEffect.
The rest we already have lost.

Rubbish!
If KMOS can make bucks out of AmigaOS in other markets this will bolster the desktop OS.

I bet it's gonna cost a fortune to go to Sacremento but I will have to check some prices tomorrow. I just happen to have two weeks off from the 17th and since I got no better plans, a trip to the states would be cool (if I can afford it

[EDIT] I cant afford to go there this time, cheapest flight I could find online was around 1450USD, with hotels etc. it will be more than I can afford atm.

WHERE does it say that ? Most of all, where's the line that says "desktop cancelled".

Don't read stuff into this that is not there.

No, you don't. You don't have a frigging idea what is going on there.

Honestly, I really don't have the slightest idea where you draw your conclusions from. Care to explain ?

I am confused,
If KMOS goes after Mobile Phone/PDA market then why does Amiga Inc have the AmigaDE product?

I thought KMOS was going for the *telecommunication* market.

Hah! It hadn't occured to me that Amiga, Inc. would be competing with.... "itself" (AOS4)?

I thought KMOS was going for the *telecommunication* market.

Mobile Phones are not part of the telecommunications market?

That AmigaOS would be on anything other than a A1 is sooo far fetched, as Hyperion still haven't got it working properly there yet.

And if they did???????? Wouldn't you buy one????

Hmmmm.
An Amiga mobile phone???
An Amiga I-pod clone???
An Amiga PDA???
An Amiga handheld game console???

Any, or all of these would be startling developments!!!!

Hmmmm....And AmigaDE Apps and games could run on top......and scale to the desktop...Hmmmm..
Could this be the plan??? To leverage the AmigaOS for AmigaDE and make a solution greater than the sum of its parts???
Errr...Does AmigaAnywhere require an underlying OS to leverage?
And if not would it help anyway?
Why pay for Symbian or WinCE when you own your own OS???

Suddenly you've got Amiga OS EVERYWHERE and AMIGA ANYWHERE!!!!

To suggest that the current Amiga companies do not work in tandem is nonsense. AmigaOS will not compete with AmigaDE....That's just silly....and I'm sure Amiga Inc would have it in writing. Amiga Inc and all the companies directly involved are going to try to leverage everything to the last drop...... And provided it doesn't SUCK you know you want one.

mbilla

If you didnt claim to have an A1 already, Id think you were just a troll. Right now, looking at the posts you have made over the last few weeks, and threads you have started, you just seem irrational.

IMHO, take time out. Works for me.

Dave.

Airline Consolidator must have some accuracy issues, since it costs no more than approx. 1500 USD to travel from Melbourne to LA (can't find "Sacramento").

Still very expensive though.

FYI,

LA is 9 hours away from Sacramento by car. If you can't get a flight into Sacramento, try flying into San Francisco or Oakland. You will need to take a rental car or bus to sacramento from either city.

This "This unique technology is currently being adapted for the next generation of mobile communication chip sets, ushering in new forms of mobile communication." sounds like the writer does not have a clue what AOS is.


((he hehe , perhaps it's a deal with Tulip for some iAmigaTunes and IAmiPod MP3 players etc.... LOL ! ))
