Palm Mobile Internet Kit Ships
Palm, Inc. has started shipping its Mobile Internet Kit. This software application allows almost all Palm handheld computer users to connect to the Internet using a data-enabled mobile phone and use Palm's web clipping apps.
The kit is available immediately in the United States, with scheduled availability in the rest of the world by the end of the month. Selling for about $40, it can be ordered off Palm's Web site in the U.S. and Europe, and also is available in the retail channel throughout Europe and Asia Pacific.
Users of the Mobile Internet Kit will be able to access the Internet and web content through web clipping technology, which was first introduced with the Palm VII wireless handheld. A web clipping app extracts only a specific set of information from a Web site, providing users with an efficient means of accessing information without excess graphics and undesired information. These are available from the Palm.Net Web site.
The Palm Mobile Internet Kit requires Palm OS 3.5, and the upgrade software is included on the CD-ROM.
The kit also provides e-mail and Short Messaging Services (SMS). It includes MultiMail 2.26, providing easy to any POP3 or IMAP4 mail account, and HandPHONE SMS 1.3. In addition, the Palm Mobile Internet Kit CD-ROM includes Neomar WAP 1.5, an optional WAP browser.
660k of memory is required.
