    M-Systems Flash Disk Pioneers Ltd. (Nasdaq:FLSH), Tuesday announced that Telxon Corp. (Nasdaq:TLXN) has selected DiskOnChip as the storage solution for its new PTC-1800 hand-held terminal.

    Telxon is using M-Systems' flash-based DiskOnChip for local storage of the operating system, applications and data files in the PTC-1800. User data such as local databases and day transactions will be stored on DiskOnChip.

    Also a commercial smart-phone, the PTC-1800 delivers Voice-Over-IP telephony, messaging and transaction-processing capabilities based on the Microsoft Windows CE operating system, which will be stored on DiskOnChip. This high-function wireless phone can also access e-mail and Web pages.
