3Com launches new Palm handhelds

3Com Palm Computing Australia today expanded its range of handheld devices with the launch of the Palm IIIx and Palm V organisers.

According to 3Com, the $799 Palm IIIx is intended to meet the mobile computing needs of the corporate workplace and enterprise applications. The IIIx is similar to the Palm III, but ships with twice as much memory (4MB). An internal expansion slot allows for the addition of add-on memory modules or pager cards. Power is provided by two AAA batteries.

At $999, the Palm V is 3Com's "executive" model. The Palm V is thinner than the Palm III and weighs a mere 113g. Those looking for an organiser that doubles as a fashion accessory (or vice-versa) will not be disappointed. The Palm V is elegantly finished in anodised aluminium and ships with an embossed leather front cover. The lithium ion battery can be recharged while the device is being "HotSync"ed in its cradle. Alternatively, an optional travel kit is available which includes a sync cable, recharger and adapters.

Both models are based on the Palm OS, v3.1, which now offers built-in network synchronisation capabilities. The supplied Palm Desktop software now includes Microsoft Outlook connectivity.

Windows 10 for Business / Dell XPS 13

I’d happily recommend this touchscreen laptop and Windows 10 as a great way to get serious work done at a desk or on the road.

Ultimately, I think the Windows 10 environment is excellent for me as it caters for so many different uses. The inclusion of the Xbox app is also great for when you need some downtime too!

Windows 10 / Lenovo Yoga 910

For me, the Xbox Play Anywhere is a great new feature as it allows you to play your current Xbox games with higher resolutions and better graphics without forking out extra cash for another copy. Although available titles are still scarce, but I’m sure it will grow in time.

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.
