Smartphone specialists hold live demonstrations at Gitex stand

PalmOne has been holding live demonstrations at its stand at Gitex showcasing the firm’s innovative approaches to handhelds and smartphones. The company says its products appreciate the significance of lifestyle solutions in this market and want to use the exhibition to showcase the flexibility of their products to Middle East consumers.

PalmOne Country Manager for the Middle East and Africa Stuart Maughan says versatility is vital to today’s IT consumers and that is what give’s PalmOne’s products the edge.

Maughan cites PalmOne’s Treo smartphones which combine a full-featured mobile phone and palm powered organiser with wireless communications including email, messaging and web browsing, in a small, compact, device that simplifies both business and personal life. The firm’s latest smartphone, the Treo600 was launched just four weeks ago and retails for about $700.

The firm is also showcasing Zire handhelds: simple, approachable and easy-to-use palm powered organisers for people balancing their personal and professional lives. PalmOne’s handhelds offer internet connectivity, as well as a vast array of hardware and software choices. Maughan says, for example, the handheld’s allow access to detailed maps to guide users as they drive around the major cities.

The firm’s handheld’s can also be used in conjunction with the PalmOne MuzicVault Personal Jukebox which offers users a means of carrying their entire MP3 collection in the car, with full PalmOne powered navigation. The MuzicVault carries up to 160GB of MP3/ MWA/ Wav files, the equivalent of approximately 10,000 songs. Maughan says the beauty of the device is that a potentially massive music collection of thousands of songs wirelessly from the comfort of their seat.
