Kelly McNeill writes: "Although analysts warn of the challenges of touting Linux in a sector dominated by Palm and Microsoft, South Korea-based Gmate Co. Ltd. is moving confidently ahead with plans to market a Linux-based personal digital assistant (PDA) in December. The company said its Yopy PDA, which it demonstrated at last week's Comdex technology show in Las Vegas, will first go on sale in South Korea, with marketing planned later around the world as distribution deals are finalized. It will sell for US$380 in South Korea and for about $450 in the U.S."
