Fifth Generation: Palm VII

In early summer 1999, Palm Computing revealed a dramatic new direction for its wildly popular palmtops—wireless Internet. Only half an inch taller than a standard Palm IIIx, the Palm VII nonetheless houses far more components, including a two-way radio transmitter, antenna, and NiCad rechargeable battery designed to power the transmitter. The result is a PalmPilot that can check and send email or check web pages without having to plug into a wall.

Complete details on the Palm VII, including tips and troubleshooting, are in Chapter 16.
