TapSmart KeyLink requires Palm OS 4 or OS 5 (Garnet). It is available for download for $19.95 [BUY]. Typical Palm handhelds supported include the PalmOne Tungsten, Zire, and Treo 600 models, SONY Clie models, and other specialized handhelds such as the Garmin IQ3600. TapSmart KeyLink also requires Windows 98, 2000, or XP, TCP networking or USB cradle, and the Java Virtual Machine version 1.4 or later.
