Different CPU I think. 200Mhz on the Cybook, 400 Mhz on the new models from Netronix. RAM might differ too.

Different memory size and cpu speed wouldn't necessarily prevent it.

Remember, though, that, unlike Linux, CE is not a free operating system. You'd need to purchase a licence to run it, and there might be administrative difficulties in doing so.

Why would i have to purchase a licence? Wouldn't that be included in the Price for the reader?

No, we were talking about the possibility of reflashing a Gen3 with CE. Obviously if you bought a machine supplied with Windows CE, the price of the machine would include the licence .

I think Harry is referring to you installing WinCE on a device on your own,not buying a reader that runs it.
