USB Adapter Connects Palm Devices

Send Article to a Friend

USB Adapter Connects Palm Devices -- Palm organizer owners frustrated by the lack of a direct USB solution for connecting their HotSync cradle to iMacs or blue and white Power Macintosh G3 machines can now purchase Keyspan's $40 USB PDA Adapter. Currently, owners of USB-enabled Macs need the combination of a USB-to-serial adapter and Palm Computing's MacPac adapter to synchronize their Palm handheld devices with data on their Mac. The USB PDA Adapter provides a direct link from the Mac's USB port to the DB-9 serial connector found on the Palm HotSync cradle and stand-alone HotSync cable. (For more about Palm handhelds, see our "Reading the Palm" series of TidBITS articles.) According to Keyspan, the device also works with serial-equipped Wacom digitizing tablets. [JLC]
