[IBM to resell all Palm handheld computer models.]
Santa Clara, Calif. -- Palm, Inc. today announced an agreement through which IBM becomes a U.S. reseller of Palm(TM) handheld computers. The agreement not only
broadens the handheld product choices for IBM's large customers, but also brings Palm handhelds to the attention of small- and medium-size businesses that purchase from IBM. Customers can now purchase any Palm handheld -- from
the entry-level Palm m100 series to the higher-end Palm m500 series, or the Palm i705 handheld with integrated wireless(1) -- from IBM.
"Palm understands the intense demands of a company's mobile fleet and makes products that meet their needs, whether in a business group, across a corporation through the IT department, or for a small business," said Glenn Cross, senior vice president, Americas Sales, Services, and Enterprise Business Development, Solutions Group, Palm, Inc. "As we continue to make
strides into the enterprise, relationships with business leaders like IBM strengthen our position and help us to better serve all our enterprise
customers. Being chosen as an IBM supplier of handhelds is clearly a compliment to our technology and reaffirms our role as a champion for the mobile enterprise."
