The Hong Kong Palm User group is suggesting that the Clie NR70 series may be nearing it’s end. Stores in Tokyo are not receiving new units, although they sre still being sold through SonyStyle in Japan.
This rumor appears to have some basis in the US as well. PC Mall and others have dropped their prices on the NR series, some as much as $100. Sony typically makes changes in Japan first, with the US lauching similar units or disconinuing them, within a few months.
So what’s next? The HK User Group is posting details about the new Clie NR90. The features include te 66MHz processor which dictates Palm OS v4. Palm OS users have been waiting for the next generation devices with Palm OS 5, but it appears we’ll have to wait until late this year before we see any OS 5 devices from Sony. Again it looks like the device will not have any wireless capabilities.
