Sony is showcasing its CliT range of handhelds at the exhibition. Ranging from $300 to nearly $600 in price, the slim, silver machines boast all the usual PDA features and run on the Palm operating system. The devices are all equipped with colour LCD screens and memory stick slots.

The top of the range PEG-NX80 features a 1.3 megapixel camera that rotates 300 degrees front and back and can capture moving images. The device possesses a 200MHz processor and 32MB of RAM. Through an optional Wireless LAN card and Bluetooth module you can surf the internet or send and receive emails with attachments in wireless hot spots like a selection of Dubai's five-star hotels.

Other nifty features include handwriting recognition software and a voice recorder that can hold up to 520 minutes of audio. You can then email these sound files with CliT mail. The other significant audio feature is an integrated music player that can play ATRAC3 and MP3 files.

Other key models on display include the PEG-TG50/G and the PEG-SJ33/G. The PEG-TG50/G retails for around $350 and features similar wireless internet capability to the PEG-NX80, while the PEG-SJ33/G costs approximately $300.

Only recently launched in the Middle East the CliT is the most popular form of PDA in Japan and Sony predicts it will garner approximately 20% of the UAE PDA market within a year. L4-1
