The machines will be exclusively available through branches of Dixons and PC World, priced at 269.99 for the 32MB "Zodiac 1" and 329.99 for the 128MB "Zodiac 2" - both come with a full UK/Euro/US charging kit and the latest Zodiac 1.1 software suite.

A full range of additional accessories will also be available from launch, alongside games such as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4, SpyHunter, DOOM II and Duke Nukem Mobile, which will retail for 29.99 each. Additional game packs are also planned by Tapwave including Z:Pak Adventure and Z:Pak Fun with the latter featuring the highly addictive MegaBowling.

GamesPaper got to see the Zodiac in action during the European Games Network last month and it's an impressive device which looks set to have a lot of promise, giving you not only games but also a full Palm powered PDA which allows you to use it as a music and video player, photo viewer, and calendar just to name a few of the many functions.

More details about the Zodiac can be found on the Tapwave website.
