Neonode, a Swedish manufacturer of Windows CE based devices announced the availability of its latest version N2 on the US market. We did review on it a while ago, so here is the link if you want to read it. The interesting information is that they are preparing another version dubbed N2.5 which will apparently be released by either AT&T or T-Mobile in the US. As seen from the pictures, the N2.5 is considerably larger compared to N2 due to the increased battery life, which was requested by the US carriers (up to 8h of talk time) and if AT&T picks it, 3G radio will have to be fitted in as well.

The actual software will be exactly the same as on the N2, with just minor tweaks, such as shortcuts to the carrier websites.

The company also disclosed that the active development of N3 started three months ago. Don’t expect it soon though, as the release will be probably sometime in 2009.
