Minstrel S by Novatel Wireless

The new Minstrel S™ Wireless Springboard Modem, combined with your Visor, can do a lot more than organize calendars and addresses. Minstrel S enables secure, affordable, 2-way wireless access to email, corporate LANs and the Internet, transforming your handheld computer into a virtual office. As a result, improved productivity is only a tap away.

Based on the Springboard™ technology developed by Handspring, the Minstrel S snaps into the expansion slot on the back of the Visor and is the first modem accessory to provide nationwide wireless WAN access. The Minstrel S supports popular Palm OS™ enterprise productivity and synchronization programs and is bundled with POP3 email and HTML web browsing software. In addition, the Minstrel S has 2 MB of flash memory for storing applications.

Since Minstrel S utilizes Cellular Digital Packet Data (CDPD) technology — a secure, open standard network - you can be sure of reliable, real-time data transmission at speeds up to 19.2 kbps. The sleek design of the Minstrel S retains the elegance and portability of the Visor handheld; and together, they provide the functionality of a single, highly integrated product —resulting in a smart and powerful tool for the mobile professional.
