In 1999: TRG announces TRGpro (first with industry standard expansion Compact Flash "CF" memory)

The TRG Pro is a real favourite of mine. It was the first Palm OS PDA to have a compact flash slot in it, and although it was only an OS 3 or 4 device it still had a lot going for it as, unlike later devices it had a serial connection which was great for MIDI.

In 1999: Sony licenses PalmOS

Now this was a massive deal as it resulted in a whole series of amazing devices from simple starter devices to units that could only be called 'swiss army knives' of the handheld world. Back then anyway. Some of them are still amazing in my opinion.

In 2001: Acer announces s10 (for Chinese-language market)

Which was probably a big thing for the whole PDA world back then. I have to admit that I don't know very much about the s10 sadly.
