Bluetooth and WiFi SD & Memory Sticks in Development
Hagiwara Sys-Com, a Japanese semiconductor company, have announced they are developing four wireless cards for Palm OS devices. The company plans to release both Secure Digital (SD) and Memory Stick (MS) Bluetooth and WiFi cards this summer.
The memory stick and SD WiFi cards allows access to any 802.1b access point. It has a range of approximately 37 meters, or 120 feet and support 40/128 WEP encryption. The memory stick version requires Palm OS 5, while the SD version will work with Palm OS 4 or greater.
The Hagiwara Bluetooth cards comply with Bluetooth v1.1. Both cards will enable devices to connect with other Bluetooth enabled products. They will work with Palm OS 4 and higher devices.
Hagiwara says that the development of these products is already well underway and the products will be available in the third quarter. Pricing will be announced when the products become available. More technical information on the cards can be found here.
