Sony to unveil handheld device with Palm OS
Posted: 09-Jun-2000 [Source: CNET/Yahoo!]

[Sony may soon unveil a wireless handheld which may feature a color display and PDA functionality according to this report.]

By Stephanie Miles -- "The consumer electronics giant will show its hotly awaited entry into the handheld computing market at the giant computer industry trade show, without revealing details about price or feature specifications. PC Expo runs from June 27 to 29 in New York.

"Sony plans to preview the personal digital assistant (PDA) at PC Expo, offering the first public glimpse of the much-anticipated handheld device. Executives at a recent company event, including Fujio Nishida, the new president of Sony Electronics, indicated the device will be previewed at PC Expo, which is where Sony first introduced its Vaio computer lines.

"He did mention that at PC Expo it will be displayed," confirmed David Yang, a spokesman for Sony. "It looks like we're planning to follow that plan."

"The company has been characteristically tight-lipped about plans for the device, which will be based on Palm's operating system. Analysts say the PDA will likely be the first of a series of products aimed at boosting Sony's presence in the wireless and gaming market.

"Analysts familiar with Sony's plans believe the company will eventually release a line of products offering wireless connectivity, personal organization, some gaming functionality and color displays. The products will range from a sub-$100 messaging device to a higher-end PDA with wireless communication and color displays, analysts say.
