Freescale i.MX21 to power Zircon PDA Phone

The i.MX21 multimedia applications processor was chosen today to power the Zircon PDA phone by Oswin Technology. Running on the Windows CE.NET OS platform, the i.MX21 gives the Zircon many capabilities that were once left untapped in the CE category of devices.

Oswin’s Zircon PDA phone is a tri-band GSM (900, 1800, 1900 MHz), GPRS Class 10 device, which increases the likelihood of a global market reach.

Dubbed as the smallest CE.Net PDA phone in the world, the Zircon features a 2.2-inch LCD display with extremely low power consumption ratings thanks to the 4-LED backlight, a 1.3 megapixel camera with support for 240×320 to 960×1280 photos in JPEG format and MPEG 4 and H.263 format video recording at up to 30 fps. It measures only 4.3 x 1.9 x 0.9 inches and weighs 116g, support for USB and IrDA, expansion through SDIO-capable mini-Secure Digital slot in addition to the 64 MB SDRAM (50 MB user accessible); 64 MB Flash.

The lack of Bluetooth however is the only drawback the Zircon has, if you can get past this, it may be your all-in-one mobile office solution. It will come bundled with Microsoft’s Pocket Internet Explorer, Windows Media Player, Image Viewer, MSN Messenger, TextMaker, PlanMaker and handwriting recognition.
