Seven Steps to Software Security

British Palm users keen to get their hands on the latest Palm clones from Handspring and TRG will have to wait until next year at the earliest. According to IT Week, TRG president Ernie Rudolph said the company is planning to begin shipping its corporate-oriented TRGPro in the UK some time during Q1 2000.

The TRGPro's claim to fame is its addition of a standard CompactFlash slot to the basic Palm IIIx. Improved expansion is also the USP for Handspring's more mainstream-oriented Visor and Visor Pro, through its Springboard technology, a device customisation system based on plug-in modules. Springboard units already promised includes not only standards like modems and extra memory, but digital music playback, cellphone and pager modules too.

Handspring's website informs international buyers that they will be able to order Visors in the New Year. Handspring CEO and co-founder (and co-founder of Palm Computing), Donna Dubinsky said part of that overseas expansion will include a UK site. Handspring currently sells direct. TRG said it is exploring multiple channels in the UK. ®
