New Palm Bluetooth Keyboard Spotted
Palm's latest 2007 SRP guide lists a new Blueooth keyboard, the "Palm Wireless Bluetooth Keyboard". Bearing a publication date of April 27th, 2007, this price sheet shows the Palm part number for this new model as 3245WW. No release date is given but Palm generally updates this sort of information on a quarterly basis, so an arrival in the June/July timeframe would seem most likely.
Palm gives a compatibility listing of the Tungsten E2 and TX handhelds and the Treo 650, 680, 700p/w/wx, and 750 smartphones. Oddly enough, neither the LifeDrive, any older Palm PDAs with Bluetooth or the newly-released Treo 755p are listed amongst the compatible devices. MSRP of this new model is listed at $99.99.
The current "universal" Palm wireless keyboard (which uses IR), model 3169WWZ, is listed as being compatible with a wider variety of older models, and is still shown as an active product with an MSRP of $69.99.
A search of several online price search engines reveals a few coarse images and some basic details of the new keyboard. It appears to be a sleeker, more rounded design than its predecessors with a full 5-row design and fullsize keys.
