Status of Palmfocus.com Thu Mar 03, 2011 9:27 am
While Palmfocus.com has not been updated for almost five years, minus a few posts here and there, we just wanted to let you know that the resources at Palmfocus.com will continue to be available to you. We realize the resources here will become less and less relevant as time passes, especially since HP acquired Palm and has killed the Palm brand. However, we know there are still people out there with a Palm device. Feel free to use the resources available to you with confidence knowing that there is still a staff and a site available to you. Thank you for visiting.

Can Palm Change the Game? Thu Jun 26, 2008 10:49 pm
According to an article over at TreoCentral, it appears Ed Colligan (Palm's CEO) is pretty optimistic about the future of Palm. From the Palm devices expected to be released later this year, based on Windows Mobile, to the new devices Palm expects to release in 2009, based on their new platform, Palm is looking to "deliver some positive results in the coming years."

I really wish them the best especially since the iPhone has raised the bar pretty high. However, given a couple of things: (1) Palm plans on releasing some game changing hardware in 2009, and (2) Everyone else in the market still is scrambling to come up with answer to the iPhone; it could make another interesting year for the mobile market place.

More Information on Rumored Palm Treo 850 Tue May 27, 2008 10:35 am
Here are the rumored specs for the new Palm Treo 850.
  • 14 mm in thickness, width 60 mm and length 113 mm
  • GSM, EDGE and UMTS HSDPA 3.6
  • assisted-GPS receiver
  • Wi-FI b/g
  • 320x320 touch screen
  • micro-SD slot under the battery
  • 2MP camera
  • 1500 mAh battery
  • a micro-USB connector for both power and sync
  • bluetooth 2.0 EDR + A2DP, 256 MB NAND-Flash (> 175 MB for user), 32 MB SDRAM
  • Windows Mobile Pro 6.1
While not new to the industry, there are many features new for Palm, such as GPS, WiFi, micro-USB, A2DP, and 320x320 display on a Windows Mobile device.

While the hardware specs look good, Palm will have to execute with their software in order to differentiate themselves. Thus, I am equally interested to see what software customizations that Palm might include with the new device, if any.

Either way, this is the first device from Palm that has really interested me since they released the Treo 650, and I will probably try to get my hands on one as soon as possible.

New Device from Palm Expected Soon Tue Apr 22, 2008 10:03 am
There have been a lot of rumors in the past couple of months suggesting that a new device will be released by Palm this summer. From what I can gather, here is what can be expected:
  • Windows Mobile 6
  • 320x320 Color Display
  • EVDO
  • Bluetooth 2.0
  • 2.0 MP Camera
  • Wi-Fi
  • GPS
As that time gets closer, I am actually looking forward to getting my hands on it. Yes, I know that Palm has not really come out with anything revolutionary, but I have not used any of the latest Palm devices. I would like to see how the newer devices compare to the Treo 650 that I use to have, and with the expected features of the new device, it might be a good time to do so.

PalmFocus Web Site Update Fri Apr 18, 2008 11:42 pm
I know there have not been a lot of updates to the web site since mid-2006. While I regret that I have not been able to update the site, Palm has not really done a lot in the past couple of years that really motivated to write anything about Palm or the Palm OS (now the Garnet OS).

However, I really hope that Palm is able to get back on track and really begin innovating again in the mobile space. While it appears that Apple and RIM have a lot of momentum in the mobile space, there is still plenty of room available for Palm to make some things happen.

Personally, I hope they plan on offering a lot of different options for mobile users. They need to deliver stylish products that are easy to use on an open platform that can provide solutions only limited by the developers' imaginations.

I know my suggestion is easy to make while executing it can be a totally different story, but here is wishing Palm the best in its efforts to regain the title in once had in the mobile space. Apple was able to come back, and I know the same opportunity is there for Palm. Palm, surprise us!

My Vision for Mobile Computing Fri Jul 20, 2007 10:11 am
I would like to see an independent device, without the need for another computer. I want a mobile device running a mobile operating system that can handle all the major tasks that I perform on a daily basis which includes handling email, managing my schedule, managing my contacts, managing the list of things I need to do, jotting down a note, browsing the Internet, running a word processor, running a spreadsheet, running a presentation, running a database, watching movies, listening to music, burning data to a CD/DVD, connecting to a network, viewing PDF files, and reading books.

Now, I know the list of things is long, and there are some mobile devices that can already handle most, if not all of this. However, in many ways, current devices do them marginally well, or they still need to be connected to a computer in order to do some of them.

I basically want the capability of a laptop without the bulky peripherals (i.e. 15″ screen, full size keyboard, CD drive, etc.). However, it still needs to include basic mobile technology (i.e. screen, some form of input like current mobile devices, WiFi, Bluetooth, microphone, headphone jack, and memory card expansion). In addition, it needs to support an interface that would easily allow me to connect peripherals I need.

For a typical setup, I could imagine a docking station that was connected to a home network, a 19″ LCD monitor, a CD/DVD burner, a keyboard, and a mouse. You simply slide the mobile device into the docking station, and you are ready to go. In addition, you could have the same setup at work. Thus, you could easily go from home to work without transferring or synchronizing anything. Although more restrictive due to the device's input/output limitations, you could still access the information on the mobile device itself plus have the ability to connect to the Internet using WiFi or Bluetooth networking capabilities.

I could also imagine a “laptop” docking station that would be the same form factor of current laptops, but you could simply slide your mobile device into the “laptop” docking station for access to your information via a 15” LCD monitor and full-size keyboard along with all the other stuff that comes on a laptop.

I really think something like this would be viable because it would replace a lot of redundancy. It would be a true centralization of your data, and it would save a lot of time managing multiple devices.

Martin Fields Overlay Plus Screen Protectors Tue Aug 01, 2006 11:59 pm
I just thought I would remind everyone about the Martin Fields Overlay Plus screen protectors. They are excellent screen protectors, not only for Palm devices, but for all sorts of mobile devices from cell phones to iPods. They are strong, durable, and fit like a glove. The visual clarity is outstanding. It is so clear that I sold one of my devices with the Martin Fields Overlay Plus installed, and the person installed a second screen protector not knowing one was already installed. When I called to let the person know there was a screen protector already installed, they did not believe me. I had to convince the person to take the second screen protector off to prove it. After removing the second screen protector, the person still could not believe there was one installed. After close examination, the person saw there actually was one installed. Of course, the person was highly impressed!

By the way, here is a review I published back in 2004 for the Martin Fields Overlay Plus Screen Protector. I highly recommend them for any device!
