Trademark rights: Scene-World-Podcast-Interview with Commodore Business Machines
In its 13th issue, the English-language podcast Scene World has interviewed Massimo Canigiani and Paolo Besser. Canigiani is chief executive officer (CEO) of "Commodore Business Machines Ltd." registered in Great Britain which is going to sell a commercial Android smartphone as "Commodore PET" ( reported).

But there is also direct connection to the Amiga section because Paolo Besser is well-known for his most popular AROS-Distribution Icaros Desktop. Therefore as Amiga emulator of the smartphone the AROS-Kickstart-ROM is used.

In this interview Canigiani and Besser clarified, that they are not only going to make quick money with the "Commodore PET", which will be delivered in a few weeks, but in future also develop separate products. The users can configure many options by themselves. Therefore the smartphone can be rooted without losing the warranty. Only if you use ROMs of your own, This guarantee expires immediately.

They also cooperate with the authors of the emulator to ensure an optimal adaption. While the emulation in the original version would not have run completly fluently on a similar Galaxy S5 now it does. (snx) (Translation: dr)
