New Palm m100 Backup Solution
With the announcement of the m100 Palm also indicated that several snap-on devices would be available shortly. Well, here's the first one I have found; the MemorySafe by Northstar Mobile.
MemorySafe is a 1" square plug-in device that connects directly to the serial port of a Palm m100, Palm III series, or Palm VII series. After you install their driver, you can move individual files or backup your entire Palm, if you have enough room. There is a 2 MB version for $50 and an 8 MB version for $65.
Northstar Mobile is a division of Northstar Systems. And from what I gathered on Northstar Systems web page, it appears that they are the makers of the Palm cradles, the Palm connector designers (serial ports), and Palm cable manufacturers. Looks like they are moving from a Palm supplier into the retail market, great news for all of us! I wonder if the MemorySafe will eventually become Palm branded for the m100?!
