Palms Across America

PALM IIIC Handheld

We're including two devices from Palm because the Palm IIIc is a different beast than the rest of the product line. A color active-matrix TFT screen puts it in competition with Pocket PCs. The operating system is changed as well, to accommodate color. It'll take some time to develop the color applications currently available with the grayscale versions, however. The rechargeable battery is supposed to allow for two weeks of "normal usage." The 8MB storage doesn't keep up with the 16MB standard in most Pocket PCs, but the Palm OS doesn't have as much overhead as the Windows OS.
