Palm Releases New Accessories, Keyboard and Camera
Palm has released a number of new accessories including a IR wireless keyboard, a 1.3MP SD digital camera and a multifunction stylus. Most of the new accessories are available now or by October 1st. The company has also debuted new cases, styli and accessory kits.
Palm has developed a wireless foldable keyboard. The keyboard connects to a Palm branded handheld wirelessly via IR. It operates on two "AAA" batteries for three to six months of life, depending on usage.
The keyboard has a similar folding design as the Palm ultra thin keyboard, and uses the same keyset array. It weighs 5.75 ounces and will retail for $69.95 USD. It works with all current Palm handhelds.
1.3 Mega Pixel SD Camera
Palm has also come out with a new SDIO digital Camera. The new camera card has a 1.3 MP CCD and can take 24-bit color JPEG photos at up to 1280 x 1024 resolution. Other features include adjustable focus for close-up shots or landscapes, digital zoom for photos, a swivel lens for self-portraits or forward-facing photos, and a video capture function. Compatible with all current color Palm handhelds with Palm Photos or PhotoBase software (Tungsten C, Tungsten T and Tungsten T2 handhelds). The new camera card is scheduled to be available in December for $99.95 USD.
Executive Multifunction Stylus
The new the pen-sized Executive Multifunction Stylus preforms four functions in one -- a smooth-writing pen, a laser pointer (up to 500 yards range), a flashlight and, of course, a stylus. The James Bond of styli will sell for $19.95.
Zire lighted Stylus and Tungsten Gold Plated Stylus
Palm's answer to the lack of a backlight in the original Zire is a new light up stylus. The replacement stylus includes a translucent tip that lights up and illuminates. On the higher end a new 24 karat gold plated stylus sells for $29. It fits the Palm Tungsten C and W handhelds.
Also announced today are a number of new stylus packs, handheld specific accessory kits, screen protectors and new support plans.
The above accessories are available for online order from the Palm.com Store.
