California-based handheld manufacturer Tapwave has announced an expansion into Europe for its Palm OS-based Zodiac, revealing UK retail launch plans 'this holiday selling season' for the Tapwave Zodiac hardware. Pricing is yet to be revealed for this European launch. To help with this, the company is establishing a small presence in England, having hired Andrzej Kasprzyk as the company's Director of European Sales, and Roy Parker as Director of International Operations. It also exhibited at the ECTS and EGN shows, and is a premiere sponsor of the PalmSource European Developer Conference happening later this month in Munich. The Zodiac, which is sold in two models (the Zodiac1, featuring 32MB RAM, and the Zodiac2, featuring 128MB of RAM), plays Palm OS videogame titles, but also sports a ATI graphics chip, allowing for much more graphically complex titles. Currently available Zodiac-specific titles include polygon-based versions of Activision's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 and Midway's Spy Hunter, in addition to an accurate, officially approved version of id Software's classic DOOM II.
