Final Settlement in Defective m Series Suit
Final judgement regarding the Taylor vs. Palm suit has been reached and accepted. This class action lawsuit was brought against Palm involving the m100, m105 and m125 handhelds. The lawsuit stated the PDAs may be defective in that they sometimes lose data during the process of replacing batteries even when the user follows Palm's recommended procedure.
The problem stemmed from bad backup capacitors in the affected units. The suit also alleged Palm failed to communicate and disclose certain facts and circumstances in connection with data loss.
If you have a dead or defective Palm m100, m105, or m125 handheld, fill out the paperwork, and send it in, Palm will replace it with a new or refurbished Palm PDA of the same or higher model at their expense.
The full paperwork and court fillings can be found here. The settlement only applies to US citizens. The deadline to submit a claim is February 22nd.
Thanks to Ron May for the tip.
