palmOne finally takes the wraps off the LifeDrive

by Volker Weber


Pictures and specs of this product have been leaked for weeks now. Today palmOne has finally taken the wraps off the LifeDrive. I have seen and touched the device at CeBIT, but was not allowed to play with it. So I don't really have any firsthand experience.

What I can say is that this is the mother of all PDAs. It's got everything short of being a phone. This may be the perfect companion for a small Bluetooth-equipped phone. If all goes well I may have one to play with shortly. Stay tuned.


It will be interesting to see what the time between charges is, with WLAN, HDD, Bluetooth and colour screen, I imagine it might need frequent recharging.... Nice price for all those features, though.
