Vaja is now shipping Dell Axim cases

Vaja is now shipping their line of Dell Axim cases. They range from $55 for the basic to $100 or more for a fully customized unit. The standard comes in black and is a much better option than the basic footie that comes with the Dell.

Avaion has upgraded FatFinger with Palm OS 5 support

FatFinger is an alternatiev keyboard entry system for Palm OS devices. If you’re unfamiliar, check out our review.

The ultimate mobility outerwear adds leather and sleeves

SCOTTeVEST is releasing an interesting new product this fall. Their leather jacket with 25 pockets to stow and connect electronics is available for pre-order right now for $300. The regular price will be $450, so this is a nice little savings if you are so inclined.

Their traditional line is much more cost effective and makes a great gift for the gadget guy or gal in your life.

Wireless-gadget fans will get the chance over the next month or so to buy two new communicators — those combination devices that attempt to merge a cellular phone, PDA and hand-held e-mail receiver. One of the new models was designed in Europe and one in California. They take very different approaches to blending the three functions. <More…>
