Tapwave Zodiac coming to retail
The Tapwave Zodiac range of entertainment handheld and games for the Zodiac will be available, starting in June 2004, in CompUSA stores across the United States. According to David Wenning, VP of Sales for Tapwave, "CompUSA is very focused on extending their mobile computing category and the well-rounded capabilities of the Zodiac are a perfect fit for this initiative." The Zodiac consoles, accessories and four of the most popular Zodiac gaming titles are scheduled to be on CompUSA store shelves by late June.

In addition to launching at retail, Tapwave will release up to 10 new titles by the end of the year, along with 60 to 75 Tapwave Certified or Tuned titles, such as MicroQuad (arcade/racing game), Hellfire: Apache vs. Hind (helicopter combat game), Orbz (action arcade) and Acedior (RPG). Some of the Zodiac premiere titles for this year will include Activision's Moto MTX: Mototrax and Street Hoops, Eidos' Tomb Raider and Atari's Neverwinter Nights. Activision's Tony Hawk's Pro Skater 4 just released in March, and DOOM II and Duke Nukem: Mobile Mayhem will be launching in the next few weeks.

Tapwave is at work creating new software solutions for the Zodiac. Mac users can now benefit from the Mark/Space's Missing Sync software. The company has also recently completed the Zodiac software 1.1 update.

The Zodiac runs on a Tapwave-enhanced version of the Palm OS (5.2T). The console is offered in two models: the Zodiac(1) for US$299 (32MB RAM) and the Zodiac(2) for US$399 (128MB RAM). Both models will be available at CompUSA.
