Palm readies m125 pro-'sumer PDA

Brings top-end m500 features to low-end m100 family

Palm is preparing the release of its next consumer PDA, the m125, Web site PalmInfocenter has claimed, citing "two independent sources".

Essentially, the m125 brings the m10x family into line with the standards Palm has adopted through the m50x series. So, the m125 will be the first of its kind to ship with a Secure Digital Multimedia Card slot and sport Palm's Universal Connector for syncing and adding peripherals.

Like the m50x PDAs, the m125 will ship with a USB cradle. It will also be based on PalmOS 4.

Little else is known about the device other than claims that it will feature a redesigned stylus and "more classy" faceplate. If Palm is indeed readying such a PDA - its promise to bring USB, the Universal Connector and SD/MMC slots to all its organisers suggest that it is indeed doing so - let's hope it can balance retiring the current m100 and m105 with launching the m125 rather better than it did with the Vx and the m500 and m505.

Meantime, we're still awaiting further news of the mid-range m300 PDA, which turned up on the rumour mill some time ago, but has since faded away. But for the hints that the m300 would be a wireless comms device, it sounds suspiciously like the m125 - essentially a PDA positioned between the m105 and the m500.

If anyone from Palm - or elsewhere - has further information, we'd love to hear it... ®
