PalmOne to debut 2 Zires
PalmOne next week plans to announce two as it continues to look to the consumer market, according to a CNET News.com report. Both will use PalmSource's Garnet operating system. The Zire 72 ($300), which will use Intel's 312MHz handheld processor, will come with a built-in digital camera, a digital audio player, a high-resolution display, a SD expansion slot and Bluetooth on the high-end model (but will not use the sliding case used with the Zire 71). The Zire 31 ($150) will use an 200MHz Intel handheld chip and will come with a SD expansion slot, a digital audio player, and a display with a 160-by-160-pixel resolution.
