HandEra Ends Palm OS Product Line
HandEra has announced it will no longer release Palm OS based handheld products. In addition the company issued and End of Life notice for both of it's handhelds the TRGpro and HandEra 330.
HandEra made the decision due to cost increases associated with licensing the Palm OS. They will continue to sell through thier remaining inventory until May 31st and are still offering the HandEra 330 and TRG Pro to fulfill last time buy orders.
"We regret the impact that this announcement will have on our customers," said Mark Kubovich, President of HandEra. "HandEra will offer new products to serve the OEM mobile computing market in the near future."
HandEra has had a solid reputation as one of the early innovators for the Palm Platform. The small company was the first to market with a Palm OS unit with memory expansion, Higher Screen resolutions, improved sound and dual expansion slots. At one point images of a color unit were leaked and the company had intentions to develop a Palm OS 5 device. Many users had also been waiting for a OS 4 upgrade which, like the rumored devices, will not happen.
