It's Official, m105 is Out
Palm's latest handheld, the m105, has finally appeared on the company's Web site. As predicted, the $200 device has 8 MB of memory and comes with a cradle and the Mobile Internet Kit to allow it to use a mobile phone as a modem. It is the exact same size as the m100 and runs OS 3.5.
It is now available from Amazon, too.
The m105 comes with the same built-in applications that the m100 does. This means it lacks the Expense app that comes on Palm's other models but it does have the notepad app that allows scribbling directly on the screen. It also comes with AOL for Palm OS and AvantGo
It includes Palm HotSync Mail, which allows it to access popular desktop e-mail programs. The Mobile Internet Kit has a version of MultiMail as well as an SMS app.
The m105 is the replacement for the IIIxe, which has been discontinued. It appeared first on Palm's European Web site overnight.
It is expected to be available outside the U.S. beginning in mid-March. International users can choose from six languages -- English, French, Italian, Spanish, German, and Japanese. Wireless Internet access via the Palm Mobile Internet Kit will vary among regions.
Palm is also debuting 14 new faceplates for the m100 series in new colors and patterns. These cost $20.
