Zire 21: the sequel

PalmOne quadruples memory on latest handheld

PalmOne has introduced the Zire 21 — a PDA boasting four times the storage capacity of the original Zire.

In addition to 8MB of memory, the Zire 21 features the latest 126MHz Texas Instruments Omap processor; new editions of Date Book, Address Book, Note Pad and To Do List; version 5.2.1 of Palm OS software; and classic Palm PIM applications with an emphasis on value and simplicity.

PalmOne's European vice president Vesey Crichton said: "The Zire 21 handheld is a sequel to the fastest-selling handheld in history. With the same great price and ease of use, it offers more memory for data and applications, as well as faster performance. We expect the Zire 21 handheld to be another hit with first-time users and gift-givers."

The company also announced a £50 price reduction on the Zire 71; the handheld will now cost £179.

The Zire 71 plays MP3s and features a built-in camera to capture spontaneous snapshots, plus users can download movie trailers and other preformatted material from the internet and display their own video clips on the device using Kimona Player and Producer and QuickTime.
