Palm in handheld heaven

Palm is taking a share of 3Com’s stand and touting its full range of handheld devices at this year’s Gitex. Topping the bill will no doubt be Palm’s recently launched m505 boasting colour screen — supporting a spectrum of over 65,000 colours — and improved e-mail and Internet connectivity.

Palm is taking a share of 3Com’s stand and touting its full range of handheld devices at this year’s Gitex. Topping the bill will no doubt be Palm’s recently launched m505 boasting colour screen — supporting a spectrum of over 65,000 colours — and improved e-mail and Internet connectivity.

However, alongside greater colour support and mobile office functionality, Palm is also bringing greater local support, with the IAI Arabised Palm OS (APOS).

To ensure full functional support with Palm’s latest generation operating system IAI took the decision to upgrade their localised Palm OS. With version 4 out in the market space Palm will be in a better position to win local application developers to its stand, said Palm’s local general manager, Stuart Maughan, two months ago.

Localised applications are already on the way, with the delivery of a Quaran and an Arabic calendar. Greater business applications and further deals with regional web-portals are in the pipeline.
