Handspring has tested the Macintosh Palm Desktop (version 2.6.1) for Handspring Visor handhelds with Mac OS X and found it to be functional while running in the Classic environment. Testing was done with the Gold Master version of Mac OS X. The Classic environment was loaded with Mac OS 9.1.There you have it. I am running Mac OS X classic-free and am refusing to run Palm Desktop until there is a version for OS X. Hurry up Handspring! :)
Since the HotSync Manager appears to take slightly longer to recognize a handheld while running in the Classic environment under Mac OS X, it is possible that a HotSync operation could fail to initiate on older or slower Macintosh computers. Handspring will be working with Palm and Apple to correct any problems.
There is currently no support for a native Mac OS X version of Palm Desktop. Handspring is working closely with Palm and Apple to provide such support in the future.
Use of a Serial Cradle is currently untested and unsupported by Handspring under Mac OS X.
