Newly announced by R-Comp Interactive is a new hardware product in their RISCBook range – Windows notebook computers running a version of VirtualRiscPC. The new machine is labelled the RISCBook Go! and is an 11.6 inch ‘hybrid’ device, which can be run as a normal laptop or, with the screen flipped back, in tablet format. Prices start from £349.00 including VAT – and there will undoubtedly be some available at next week’s London Show.
The company has also announced a new version of Messenger Pro for Windows, Mac OS and Linux. This is a different product to the Messenger Pro for RISC OS, though it’s written and maintained by Mark Sawle, who developed the original RISC OS version, so it does share some design paradigms. Upgrades on CD will be available at the show for £5.00 for existing customers, and users of the RISC OS version can buy it for £25.00. Another fiver will get you a printed manual.
