Sony Promises Palm OS 4.1 Upgrades
Sony has said something official for the first time about an upgrade for the N series. The statement is on the Sony Japan site so it only mentions the N700C, and it is in Japanese, but at least it says that there will be an upgrade before the end of this year. It will cost 10,000 yen, approximately $82. They will release more details in November.
November is also when Palm is scheduled to release a version of OS 4 for its older models.
Sony has unofficially said before that it is developing an upgrade for the N series but this is the first official mention of it. There has not yet been anything from Sony U.S. on upgrades for the N710C.
The primary improvement the switch to Palm OS 4 will bring the N700C and N710C is 16-bit color. Except for the special version Handspring developed for the Prism, Palm OS 3.5 can handle only 8-bit color. However, the entire N series has the hardware necessary and only needs OS 4 to display 65,000 colors
