What to Expect from TechXNY

Personal computers have become such a small part of the PC Expo that it is no longer really called that. The new stars of TechXNY are the handhelds. Palm's CEO Carl Yankowski is giving the opening keynote address Tuesday morning on "Handheld Computing: Grass Roots to Corporate Standard". He is expected to talk about some new company partnerships but is rumored to be using the opportunity to unveil Palm's new mid-range model, possibly called the m300. Palm will have a full pavilion.

TechXNY might also be the venue for several other new handheld announcements. Sony is expected to announce its new low-end PEG-S320 and the mid-range N610C/V. Sony's description for their booth says, "It all begins with a new line of Clie handhelds that feature higher resolution and a variety of cool applications." While this could be referring to the already announced PEG N710C, one new handheld doesn't make much of a "line".

Not to be left out, Handspring is also rumored to be announcing the Visor Twist, a new color model. They also have a pavilion.

We can expect numerous other companies to announce new products and new versions of old ones. Some of the Palm-related companies that will be at TechXNY are HandEra, Bachmann Software, Blue Nomad, DataViz, DDH Software, Extended Systems, GoAmerica, IS/Complete, Kyocera, LandWare, Margi, Novatel, MGI Software, Motorola, Ohfish, Palm Gear, Portsmith, Pumatech, RhinoSkin, Shinei International, SiPix, Symbol, and Targus.

Attendees should download the agenda and exhibitor information to their Palm. This application is available on the TECHXNY website. There will also be beaming stations around the show floor to get updates.

I'd pay for a bt card for my PDA if there was at least one or two applications I would use at least a few times per week. At the moment I can't imagine what that would be. I don't think I need to sync wirelessly to my PC; although, that could provide a luxury convenience.

Sony to Announce Two New CLIES

I.M. Anonymous @ 6/24/2001 11:21:00 AM #
The Cnet article link on TechXNY regarding mobile devices mentions Sony to announce two new CLIE handhelds. I am hoping one will be hi-res color and the other being hi-res b&w. Sony plans to have a "Family" of handhelds by the end of this year covering the low to high end called 300, 600, 700 and 800 series. I hope the high end will have a hi-res color screen and built in wireless capability.


Well, if they are going to announce the mid range Palm....

Then they have been more tight-lipped about this one than the previous times.

It will be very interesting to see if they in fact do come out with a new device that will fill the space. I know a lot of people who will grab one of those rather than an m50x or the m10x.

Reiterate comments in another topic, lets hope they do stick with the Universal Connector and SD Card - it has to be the way to go, to keep the range consistent.

Wouldn't it be more likely.....

That Palm introduces the so called m7xx series (VII replacement)?

Or are they still stocked up with VII's?
