Handspring Releases Palm Desktop 2.6

Send Article to a Friend

Handspring Releases Palm Desktop 2.6 -- Handspring, Inc. has released Palm Desktop 2.6 for the Macintosh, which is compatible with the Visor handheld device and fixes a USB synchronization problem introduced in Mac OS 9.0.4. Previously, Visor owners were limited to using Palm Desktop 2.1, instead of version 2.5 which Palm, Inc. released in October 1999 (see "Palm Desktop 2.5 Expands HotSync & USB Support" in TidBITS-501). Palm Desktop 2.6 provides features available in the 2.5 release, including integration of HotSync functions within the Palm Desktop application, enhanced USB support, and easy switching between users. Although Handspring has the new application available, its documentation and appearance suggests this is a Palm, Inc. update as well (Handspring licenses the Palm OS and Palm Desktop from Palm). In our testing, the update functioned correctly with a Palm V as well as a Visor. However, as of this writing Palm has not made the update available, and you must enter your Visor's serial number to download the free 12 MB file from Handspring. [JLC]
