Sony lets slip details for new Clié handheld

A photograph and specifications for the Clié PEG-N710C appear on the Sony Style Web page, along with a price tag of $US499. The Clié, which runs on Palm's operating system, will have 8MB of internal memory and an 8M-byte memory stick, according to information on the site. Sony apparently prepared the Web page in anticipation of the launch, but accidentally let it go live earlier than intended.

According to a "wish list" on the Web site, the device is set for release on 28 May.

The specifications are very similar to those of the Clié PEG-N700C which was announced in Japan in March. The display has been upgraded to 320 by 320 pixels, compared to a 160 by 160 screen on the former model. The US version of the device will play both MP3 and ATRAC3 audio files, while the Japanese version does not play MP3s.

By Monday afternoon the page promoting the new Clié (http://sonystyle.com/sonystyle/4784/7952/7851/8984#) was not accessible from the Sony Style main site. Sony representatives answering a toll-free number on the site confirmed that the device was not available yet, but could provide no additional details.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

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