NEW YORK, Holiday Spectacular -- Responding to the growing market demand for accessories, palmOne, Inc., the market leader in handhelds and smartphones, today introduced three accessories for fall. Included are palmOne's first cross- platform-compatible Universal Wireless Keyboard; a leather Treo(TM) 600 smartphone side-loading case; and a Bluetooth? GPS bundle, complete with a Zire 72 handheld from palmOne.
In a related announcement, Mobile Digital Media (MDM) also announced new software titles and expansion cards for handheld and smartphone customers.
"Now that so many people have incorporated handheld computers and smartphones into every aspect of their lives, it's time to accessorize. A foldable keyboard, fashionable leather case or a new software title are ideal gifts," said Jim Schwabe, general manager of palmOne accessories.
Building on the design success of the original Wireless Keyboard, palmOne designed its new keyboard to work with handhelds and smartphones from palmOne, Dell and HP. It is designed for students and business professionals who are heavy email users and who need to compose lengthy wireless emails, notes, reports and compositions away from the desktop or laptop.
Smaller than a standard paperback book, the keyboard tucks neatly into the side pocket of a backpack or briefcase, making it easy to do as much work on a handheld or smartphone as on a laptop. It's the first wireless keyboard from palmOne with cross-platform compatibility, available for $69.99 (NOTE: All prices in this release are estimated U.S. street prices).
palmOne's stylish black leather case with white stitching for the Treo 600 smartphone allows users to travel in style. The unique side-loading case also has a removable belt clip and a snap-closure to keep the Treo 600 secure. The product is available for $29.99.
For those who want a bit more color or personalization, palmOne has a line of colorful, high-quality, fashionable cases, styli and other carryalls called the palmOne persona line, designed by Vaja exclusively for palmOne. Customers can even personalize their unique case with their name, which can be embossed on the back cover or on the inside lid. More details available at www.palmOne.com/persona.
Complete with a Zire 72 handheld from palmOne, the GPS bundle includes Navigator software from TomTom with real-time 3-D and 2-D navigation display. People on the go can access maps for the entire United States and Canada -- more than 4.5 million points of interest. The bundle sells for $449; $399 after a limited $50 rebate available from palmOne. GPS Navigator from palmOne provides users with reliable and easy-to-follow maps and directions based on the latest global satellite technology. The GPS Navigator connects wirelessly to the palmOne handheld via Bluetooth technology and provides voice-guided turn-by-turn instructions.
