Palm adds a pair of PDAs


I am afraid I can’t get too excited about a PDA that doesn’t include a 3G connection, still nevertheless the two new handhelds from Palm look pretty good. The Palm Tx (£250/$299) is an upgrade of the old Tungsten line, which means you can expect a lot of features (including both Bluetooth and Wi-Fi for wireless internet access and the latest version of the Palm OS) as well as a rather smart looking handheld. As you’d expect from a top-end Palm, it’s got a beautiful screen and that same classic design.

The white Palm Z22 (£80/$99) is an upgrade of its Zire range, a line that has proved especially popular with women, who apparently appreciate the simplicity of the product as well as the lightweight design. It’s a pretty basic little handheld, with the bare minimum of features, but it feels nice and small in the hand and the addition of a colour screen is a blessing. The white plastic is supposed to make it less scary for beginners, and while it does make it feel a bit more flimsy, it’s got Palm’s good build quality. Great for anyone looking for their first PDA, in short.  You can get the PDA’s specs here.

One thought on “Palm adds a pair of PDAs

  • I know this is often said, but these Palms show just how much us Brits get ripped off on pricing. At the current exchange rate, $299 should equate to about £175, not £250!

    Even if you add another 17.5% tax (VAT) that still only comes to £205.

    Rant over….
