A "Colorful" Future for the Palm Pilot

Palm aficionados can expect a color display for the hand-held information devices sometime during the first six months of 2000, according to an announcement made at the PalmSource 99 Conference in Santa Clara, CA.

Up to now, Palm Pilots have had an LCD display, a disadvantage in convenience and readability compared to some of the models by popular manufacturers with the Microsoft-based Windows CE operating system.

A drawback to a color display for the Palm, according to industry sources, is that the display will draw power away from the battery and the devices themselves may become heavier. Rechargable batteries now are standard with Palm V and the new wireless Palm VII.
