Wireless Palm i705 Released

Send Article to a Friend

Wireless Palm i705 Released -- Palm has released the Palm i705, the next generation of the company's wireless-ready handheld organizers. The i705 is much smaller and sleeker than its predecessor, the Palm VIIx, weighing 5.9 ounces and measuring a little more than half an inch thick. The i705 features a built-in antenna (unlike the VIIx's flip-up model), which can be set to remain activated to check email or AOL instant messaging over the company's Palm.Net service even while the organizer is powered off; you can choose audible, vibrating, or flashing alerts for incoming email. The device includes 8 MB of RAM, an expansion card slot, a grayscale screen, and a rechargeable lithium polymer battery. On the software front, the i705 runs Palm OS 4.1, and comes with DataViz's Documents to Go, MGI PhotoSuite Mobile Edition, and Palm's PalmReader electronic book software. Available now, the Palm i705 costs $450; subscription to the Palm.Net service costs extra, ranging from $20 to $40 per month depending on the plan you choose. [JLC]
