Updated: Palm m500 & m505

Mon Mar 19, 2001 - 10:10 AM EST - By James Hromadka

Palm today announced two new handhelds: the m500 and m505. The m500 is $399, has 8 MB of memory, and will compete with the Visor Edge.

The m505 will compete with the Visor Prism. Here are some features of the m505:
  • 8 MB RAM
  • 4.5" x 3.1" x 0.5"
  • Weighs 4.9 oz.
  • 16-bit color screen
  • Battery life of 2 weeks on an internal Lithium-Polymer battery
  • MMC expansion slot
  • $449
  • Order starting Monday but will not ship until April
This will definitely keep Handspring on their toes. Hopefully Hawkins and co. will have a response to the m505 at PC Expo 2001 in late June. Otherwise it's going to be a long summer for the company.
