Sony announces its Palm OS line

Thu Jul 13, 2000 - 10:13 AM EDT - By James Hromadka

Here's a press release where Sony announces its PalmOS line of handhelds: the color PEG-S500C and the monochrome PEG-S300. They are both to be released in Japan September 9th. Here's a snippet from the press release:
... The two products scheduled for introduction into the Japanese market have a built-in Memory Stick slot, Jog Dial for easy navigation and boast a sleek design.

In terms of software, they come standard with a web browser to handle images as well as image file management software to share information with PCs including VAIO. In addition, Sony is planning to start a network service called "ImageStation" that allows handling of still and moving images over the Internet within this year. Directly or through a PC, customers can download still and moving images from the Internet with ImageStation and playback the images with the personal entertainment organizers.
Some pictures of the Sony handhelds can be found on this Sony Japanese page. You can discuss this news item here. Thanks to b1lanceman and Hoser in USA for the links, and thanks to MikeD for translating the date.
