More details about Gateway's forthcoming PDA and a new server to be released in August were revealed on Tuesday (17 June) at CeBIT America.

The Gateway 100X, Gateway's first handheld, will be released on Monday (23 June) with the launch of Microsoft's Pocket PC 2003 operating system, said Mike Stinson, vice-president and general manager of mobile products.

The company considers its PDA a high-end product that it will sell for between $300 (£178) and $350, he said.

It will include both a Compact Flash and an SD (secure digital) slot in the PDA and will come with 32mbytes of Ram and 32mbytes of Rom.

Gateway will use a 3.5 in reflective TFT (thin film transistor) display with a screen resolution of 320 pixels by 240 pixels and a 400MHz XScale Intel processor.

Among the 50 new products Gateway plans to release this year will be a four-way, rack-mounted server based on Xeon MP processors in late August, said Scott Weinbrandt, general manager for the systems and networking group.
