Microsoft enters the market for the
diminutive computing devices.
Tentatively dubbed Palm III, the device will come in a slightly curvier design and with an updated operating system. The price is expected to be set at $399, according to industry sources. The new operating system may include improved handwriting recognition.
The Palm Pilot III will round out PalmPilot's product line, which includes
the Personal and Professional versions. The PalmPilot Personal edition will
eventually be priced below $200, one source said.
