The latest Palm Zire may put the first effort to shame. Rumors are circulating that indicate the Zire 71 has Palm OS v5.2, an integrated camera and a 320 x 320 screen. Based on the specs and the picture, it seems very Clie-ish.
First off, props to PalmInfoCenter for being all over this. While the specs are not much more than rumors at this point, here’s a collection of what is being said –
*Palm OS v5.2
*320 x 320 pixel resolution
*Integrated camera (640 x 480 pixels)
*200 MHz processor
This new Zire and the Tungsten C are both slated for Spring releases. Palm has not officially confirmed this yet, nor have they released official specs or pricing information. It is anticipated the Zire 71 will sell for $300. Is Sony nervous? Not likely, but at least this gets Palm on similar footing in the mid-range arena.
