Secure remote control for conventional and virtual desktops

Palm Computing ended months of speculation today when it released the long-awaited Palm V and the Palm IIIx. The Palm IIIx is the essentially a Palm III with and extra 2MB of memory (for a total of 4MB) of memory and a new internal expansion port which appears to be just the III's internal RAM slot, possibly with modified voltage lines to support devices that need more power than RAM does. The device also features an enhanced LCD that offers better image contrast than its predecessor. RazorThe Palm V contains the same screen, but features the much anticipated slimline, case, all done out in brushed aluminium. The reduced thickness is down to the Palm V's built-in Lithium Ion battery, which is recharged via the device's cradle, but it comes at the cost of memory: just 2MB in total. It's still not entirely clear whether the Palm V is the much-rumoured device code-named Razor -- too many pundits have offered too many possible specifications to say accurately what's inside it -- but, broadly-speaking, the specs. match up, such as its Dragonball EV processor, slim case and clearer screen. The most notable absence is a colour display. In the US, the IIIx and V will retail for $449 and $369, respectively; UK pricing is £349.99 for the V and £279.99 for the IIIx. ® See also WinCE catches up with Palm
