Digital camera and radio modules!

Mon Feb 7, 2000 - 9:43 AM EST - By James Hromadka

Ask and you shall receive. Today at Demo 2000 Handspring demonstrated a digital camera module called the eyemodule™ from IDEO and a VisorRadio module from CUE Corporation.

From the press release:
"The eyemodule digital camera will enable capture of either color or black & white digital images. eyemodule users will be able to beam images from Visor's infrared port to another Visor or to any other Palm OS-based handheld. With a fast and simple HotSync™ operation, images can also be transferred to a personal computer to edit, e-mail or print in color or black & white.
CUE's radio module will allow people to listen to music on their favorite radio station and receive traffic alerts, personal messages and e-mail notification. The traffic alerts and personal messages will be sent over CUE's FM subcarrier network covering more than 95% of the population of Canada and the United States with a seamless footprint of more than two million square miles."
The eyemodule is set for a spring release at $149, and the VisorRadio module is also due this spring at less than $100.
