Two SD Cameras Waiting in the Wings
A Taiwanese company named Spectec has developed two digital cameras for the Palm m505 and m515 that use the SD slot. One model sits entirely on top of the handheld, while the other has more of a sled shape. Either can take 640 by 480 JPEGs in 24-bit color. Spectec is a manufacturer but not a distributor. It is not clear whether these are available for sale yet, who will sell them, or at what cost.
The company did not respond to questions in time for this article so information is somewhat limited.
Thanks to the fast transfer speed of the SD port, they can preview images on the handheld's screen at 160 by 120 pixels, in 16-bit color, refreshing at 8 to 12 frames per second. They offer automatic exposure and automatic white balance. They can focus on objects from 2 feet to infinity.
Both of these have internal, rechargeable, lithium-ion batteries.
They come with PhotoSuite Mobile and an app called Image Address Book.
Thanks to Francisco Afonso Correa for the tip. -Ed
