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.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.

It’s perfect for mobile workers. Just take it out — it’s small enough to sit anywhere — turn it on, load a sheet of paper, and start printing.

The HP OfficeJet 250 Mobile Printer is a great device that fits perfectly into my fast paced and mobile lifestyle. My first impression of the printer itself was how incredibly compact and sleek the device was.
