Minstrel S released

Wed Oct 25, 2000 - 9:17 AM EDT - By James Hromadka

Novatel Wireless announced today that it will begin shipping its Minstrel S wireless Springboard module this week. From the press release:
The Minstrel S is the first wireless CDPD modem available for the Handspring Springboard™ expansion platform, and is optimized for use with the recently announced Visor Prism™ and Visor Platinum™ models. Carrying an MSRP of $369, the Minstrel S features a rechargeable Lithium Ion battery which lasts for approximately 8 hours of continuous use and 20-24 hours in sleep mode; 3 LEDs to denote cellular service, wireless data transmission and battery life; bundled email and web browsing software; and 2 MB of Flash ROM memory for storing 3rd party applications.
Hmm, does the Minstrel S work with the Visor Deluxe? I'm working on the answer. Discuss this news here.
