Palm Lays Out 2002 Hardware Timetable
Palm's Chairman and temporary CEO Eric Benhamou gave an updated timetable for his company's plans for new hardware releases this year in a NY Times interview.
First off, he said that Palm's much delayed wireless handheld will be out within two months. It had originally planned to release a VIIx replacement before the end of 2001 but had to push it back until this year.
Next, Mr. Benhamou said that Palm-branded handhelds running OS 5 on ARM-based processors will be available by this fall. Until now, Palm has only said that it would be releasing ARM-based handhelds in the second half of 2002.
According to this article, Benhamou said that his company intends to "incorporate a faster processor and wireless standards like Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b into Palms by the fall. " While Palm has said in the past that it would be releasing a model with built-in Bluetooth this year, this is the first hint of a model with 802.11b.
