HandEra tosses in the towel...

Yesterday HandEra announced that they would not release anymore PalmOS PDAs, and were, in fact, selling their license to use PalmOS.

An innovative PDA at the time, the HandEra 330 turned a lot of heads, but never released a companion model with a color screen...which IMHO, would have been successful (especially if they had released one when first rumored over a year ago).

The 330 was my first major PDA, and I loved the big screen, virtual graffiti, dual-expansion cards, and LOUD alarm (damn thing could wake the dead...). But i've since moved on to a Clie and currently have my 330 on eBay (had this announcement come out earlier, I might have kept it...there may be a scramble for 330s over the next few months). Oh well...

So what's next, HandSpring? Pretty soon it will be only Palm and Sony as the main Palm-based players, and I wouldn't be suprised if after the dust cleared only Sony was left standing.

HandEra's Announcement

Cheers,
Gary
