4/28/01 - Handera, Inc. (formerly TRG Products, Inc.) - "announced the HandEra 330*, a powerful new handheld computing device for corporate and personal use. The Palm Powered* HandEra 330 boasts one of the highest resolution screens of any handheld on the market today as well as a larger viewing area, easy-to-use software and two expansion slots for expandable memory up to one gigabyte, all at a list price of $349.99. The HandEra 330 will be available in Q2 from the company's new Web site at www.handera.com and from select national retail outlets and resellers." Looks like this product will have some very interesting features. Worth checking out.
4/9/01 - Rex® 6000 Micro PDA worth considering. About the size of a business card case. If a Palm or Visor is too big for you, take a look at the Rex. Previous versions were disappointing, but this one seems to be pretty good. It's actually a PC card that fits into a laptop for synchronization. Not as many features as the big PDAs, but it has the essential features people use most often. Law.com review
