Info leaking out of newly IPO'd Palm suggests the company will follow up its recently launched colour Palm IIIc with a non-mono version of the wireless data-oriented Palm VII in the summer. At this point we should point out that the source, as it were, for this rumour is Infoworld's psedonymous columnist, Robert X. Cringely - the real Robert Cringely has nothing to do with InfoWorld and hasn't since 1995. That's not to imply the counterfeit Cringely's moles are any less accurate than anyone else's in this profession, simply that the bogus Bob generally likes to serve these titbits as appetisers rather than main course items. So that's all we have: Palm plans to ship the VIIc in August. It's certainly the obvious choice for Palm. We've heard from other sources that a colour Palm V is unlikely given the size of its shell (small) and the colour LCD's demand for power (big), though it was often said that Palm wouldn't be able to get colour to work at all, so perhaps it's wiser to never shay 'never', mish Moneypenny. The VIIc is a more likely choice since it's already geared up to power a battery-draining wireless link, and wireless is, of course, a key market for Palm, particularly now the momentum behind Symbian is starting to build up. ® Related Story Palm stock rockets to create $53.4bn company
