Volgens ZDNet gaat Palm deze zomer de VII verversen en komt er een goedkoop instapmodel van $149, de M100 genaamd. Hieronder wat info over dit nieuwe model:
The M100 will represent a drastic design overhaul for Palm, featuring a curvy case and five removable front plates colored silver, gold, black, royal and light blue.
The model will also come with a flip cover with a small window that displays the date and time, as well as reminder notices.
The case will have a thicker plastic than previous models had, and it will have dimensions similar to the Palm V, sources said.
[...] Palm is working with third-party manufacturers on MP3 players, cameras, modems and self-contained backup products for the M100.
The M100 will replace the IIIe PDA, which was introduced last year to compete on price with the Handspring Visor.
[break]De vervanger van de Palm VII gaat VIIx heten en zal naast een nieuwe look een intern geheugen van 8MB bevatten:[/break] An upgrade from the Palm VII, the VIIx will come with 8MB of RAM instead of the VII's 2MB, answering critics who said product sales were dampened by memory constraints of the unit.
The VIIx will also come with a new look: a slate gray case.
The unit will ship with 40 query applications -- programs that request small bits of information such as a sports score or stock price -- including several new Post Office Protocol 3 e-mail clients, such as Yahoo! mail, Juno and ThinAirApp. Other new applications will include Ticketmaster, Buy.com, Moviephone and Amazon.
The VIIx will be based on the 3.5 OS and sell for $449.
