What to Expect from TechXNY
Personal computers have become such a small part of the PC Expo that it is no longer really called that. The new stars of TechXNY are the handhelds. Palm's CEO Carl Yankowski is giving the opening keynote address Tuesday morning on "Handheld Computing: Grass Roots to Corporate Standard". He is expected to talk about some new company partnerships but is rumored to be using the opportunity to unveil Palm's new mid-range model, possibly called the m300. Palm will have a full pavilion.
TechXNY might also be the venue for several other new handheld announcements. Sony is expected to announce its new low-end PEG-S320 and the mid-range N610C/V. Sony's description for their booth says, "It all begins with a new line of Clie handhelds that feature higher resolution and a variety of cool applications." While this could be referring to the already announced PEG N710C, one new handheld doesn't make much of a "line".
Not to be left out, Handspring is also rumored to be announcing the Visor Twist, a new color model. They also have a pavilion.
We can expect numerous other companies to announce new products and new versions of old ones. Some of the Palm-related companies that will be at TechXNY are HandEra, Bachmann Software, Blue Nomad, DataViz, DDH Software, Extended Systems, GoAmerica, IS/Complete, Kyocera, LandWare, Margi, Novatel, MGI Software, Motorola, Ohfish, Palm Gear, Portsmith, Pumatech, RhinoSkin, Shinei International, SiPix, Symbol, and Targus.
Attendees should download the agenda and exhibitor information to their Palm. This application is available on the TECHXNY website. There will also be beaming stations around the show floor to get updates.
