Quickies: Wireless Security, Blazer, $150 IIIxe, m100 Cases

Kasten Chase Applied Research Ltd. has signed a deal with Palm Inc. to develop data security products to be used on Palm's handhelds. Palm will use these to protect sensitive electronic data while it is stored on their devices but also while the data is in transit over wireless networks. The applications should debut by the fourth quarter of the year.

On May 22, Blazer 1.0 and betas of Blazer 1.1 will expire. Users will need to upgrade to the new version by that date. Blazer 1.1 costs $20 but is free to VisorPhone owners.

PDA Controls.com is offering the Palm IIIxe for $150 with free shipping. Limited to supply on hand.

Brando now carries a full line of replacement cases for the m100 series. This includes the front plate, back plate, joint, flip cover and buttons.

Blazer on Palm

Has anyone used Blazer on a Palm device, specifically the IIIc? PalmScape had problems formatting some pages (AvantGo works fine). Blazer looks like it's worth a try but I could not find a demo.

I used the Blazer Beta on an m100, so basically its palmOS software that will work on any device, from the lowliest "Pilot" to m505s and Clie SXXXCs

Iíve been using the Blazer for the last two weeks and I canít believe how well it runs. Its in color so it easy to read with my M505 But, Iím just having a problem with the cost ($20.00) Iím going to wait until my blazer
(beta) runs out before I make up my mind if I will purchase The new upgraded version or not...

Overall I really like it but I still use the palm web clipping, which I use, daily...!!!The best part of that its free... =O)~

Ps. I use my Nokia 8290 to connect to the net.

Just wondering, I have a nokia 8290, a IIIc & would like to get connected using Blazer. What ISP do you use?. My cell carrier is VoiceStream so I'd would imagine that I'll need to upgrade to DataStream. Any help on how to get started would be appreciated.
Thanks, Joe

This is all you need to get started. Although this came bundled with my M505. I was strongly considering in purchasing.

The Palmô Mobile Internet Kit (see link below)

Cost $ 40.00

I use the same phone number that I use to dial Earthlink on my pc to access the net and viola your surfing...

This works great! It took me about 20 min to get it setup .

I use voice stream as well and I didnít have to up grade my service to the one you described.(no upgrade needed)

I hope this helps

Best, Joe
