Palm Says the Treo 700p Won’t Support Its Wi-Fi SD Card

When Palm, Inc. announced its latest Treo smartphone on Monday it said that this device wouldn’t offer built-in Wi-Fi. Still, some people wondered if this device would support Palm’s own Wi-Fi SD card.

A senior Palm executive has clearly stated to Brighthand in no uncertain terms that this Treo will not be able to use his company’s Wi-Fi card.

More information on the Treo 700p is available here.


BlackBerry Use in U.K. to Increase

A BusinessWire report states that the use and adoption of BlackBerries in the U.K. will see some high uptake in the upcoming year. The survey says that one if five British companies surveyed are looking to deploy Blackberries into their businesses within the next year.

The same report also talks about the perceived return on investment (ROI) of the use of mobile technology is quite different between U.S. and European companies.

The report says that U.S. companies are more demanding in knowing about ROI when it comes to using and deploying mobile devices.

European companies, on the other hand, are more respectful of IT companies that have been in business for many years.
