Dell takes on full Palm line – almost

Colour IIIc curiously missing from company comment - is LCD shortage to blame?

Dell has extended its agreement with Palm to sell the full range of the PDA developer's products. Dell already offers the Palm III, IIIx and V models, and will now add the IIIe, IIIxe and Vx. The VII will be added to the line-up shortly, said Dell. Oddly, though, the company isn't offering the colour IIIc - at least, it hasn't mentioned that it will - so we assume Palm may be holding these back for itself, particularly in light of predicted shortages in small form-factor colour LCDs. This is a good deal for Palm: it has always promoted its PDAs as an adjunct to a PC - though of late, it has placed more emphasis on their role as standalone devices. So selling them alongside PCs makes a lot of sense. Get potential buyers think of the Palm as just another peripheral, and the PDA could become as uniquitous as the printer. Dell will sell Palms through its corporate-oriented Dellware direct sales site, and through its more mainstream e-commerce operation, Gigabuys.com. ® Related Stories Cellphone LCDs to dominate display production this year Nintendo Gameboy delay confirms Palm profit fears Palm profits surpass Street 'spectations
