PalmPix Costs Less; Gets Mac Client, SDK

Kodak has announced they will be releasing new PalmPix software for the Macintosh and a software developers kit for all Palm handhelds.  The Mac software will be available September 29 while the SDK will be available on October 9. Both will be free.

Also, Kodak is now offering the Kodak PalmPix Camera at a new, lower price of $149.95.

Supporting Macintosh OS 7.5.5 or higher, the new PalmPix Mac software will provide the same image processing and transfer functionality that exists on the Windows platform. You'll be able to save your images in either JPEG or PICT format onto your Mac after you perform a Hotsync operation.

PalmPix Overview:
The PalmPix Camera lets you take pictures and transfer them to your desktop through the HotSync cradle. Pictures are viewed on the Palm handheld’s LCD screen. Once on the computer desktop, the pictures are stored as standard JPEG or BMP files (JPEG or PICT files for Macintosh users).  They can be accessed as full-color VGA (640 x 480) pictures.

The PalmPix Camera is 1.5 ounces and features a fixed focus lens, 2X digital zoom and self-timer. Until images are transferred to a computer, they are stored in the Palm handheld, each VGA file requiring approximately 100K of memory.

PalmPix is compatible with Palm III, IIIe, IIIx, IIIxe, IIIc, IBM Workpad, Palm VII platform, and TRGpro. It is also compatible with Palm V and Vx models with a required Dock V adapter (sold separately).

Now the thing just costs /as much/ as a low-end digital camera of the same capability, instead of twice as much.

And hopefully the availability of a Dev kit would allow somebody to make a picture portal for Linux, so I can use it.

Isen't that kind of pathetic? Microsoft customers EXPECT support, Apple customers DEMAND it, and Linux/BSD/BeOS people just beg and plead for enough information to write their OWN support.

Great news!

Too bad I've bought it already :(

Yeah, we plead. Besides, support would be better in most cases!
