UPDATE 1/31/02 — Looks like the m130 will be color afterall, the main upgrade over the m125. Here’s a picture that has leaked out. Palm m130 —– Perhaps in an effort to keep up with Sony’s breakneck pace of spinning out new units, Palm is rumored to be releasing 2 new PDA’s in the next few weeks. This week Palm put the venerable VII out into the pasture and looks to replace the m505 and the lower-end m100 series soon. The new color unit rumor has been around for quite some time, it’s currently in our system as the Palm m525. Sony has been handing Palm it’s butt in the color market and it looks like Palm is ready to respond in serious fashion. Details are slim right now on the specs. Another low-end PDA blows my mind, but I imagine we’ll see an m105 like device with an updated OS. The entry-level market is getting overwhelming to new buyers with Palm, handspring and Sony all fighting hard to gain the long term trust of these new entrants in the PDA market. We’ll keep you updated as the news comes/leaks out. If you know anything, drop us a note: Brian
