Thanks for reading in 2017

Well it's been a year. It's been interesting this year. I haven't really moved Palmorama on as much as I'd have liked this year, but even so I've tried out a few good things.

But thanks for reading this year, thanks for tweets and all that social stuff too.

Here's to 2018 and some more 'stuff' in the Palmosphere!

In 2003: PalmSource delivers OS6 Golden Master to Licensees.

Although as far as I'm aware this never actually made it into any production devices. It was a shame, too little and too late really to get the Palm ecosystem back on target. It had lost too much ground by then.

Why not take a look in the Palmorama library

All you need to do is click above where it says library, or click here. There's lots of good stuff in there, and I'm doing my best to continue to add to it on a regular basis.

Sharp ELSI MATE EL-670E on eBay

Now this is a real rarity. I'm not sure that I've ever seen one of these. It isn't really a PDA, but it is fun, and I thought it would be worth sharing with you.

There's even Palm stuff on Pinterest

If you're a pinterest user you can find the Palmorama pinterest board here. I add stuff to it occasionally, so it's worth checking every once in a while to see if there's anything new.

In 2000: Kyocera QCP-6035 Smartphone announced

I don't know too much about this device or the manufacturer for that matter but it was another in the long line of third party devices to use the Palm OS, much in the same way as Google has allowed manufacturers to use Android.

In 2002: Fossil Palm OS License announced (to make wristwatch PDA)

The Fossil watches never really took off in my view. They were simply too big for most wrists and didn't really do what you wanted them to do. They weren't user friendly and for the most part were targeted at the hard core PDA user who wanted another little screen on their wrist. The second iteration of the Fossil was a lot better and in many ways they were the precursor for the smart watches that we have today.

In 2000: Palm Mobile Internet Kit begins shipping

Connectivity for Palm devices was something that people had started talking about for a long time and before this the only thing you could do was read your email on the device and reply then sync and send the reply from your desktop. The mobile internet kit changed a lot.

Guess what this is, clue, it's to do with a #pda

Take a look in the Palmorama store ... (well, if you want Palm OS stuff anyway)

Have a look in the store for all your Palm OS needs! You can just click above to get to the store. The store has lots of mainly 2nd hand stuff from eBay, but often there's some quite good stuff available, so it is worth a look occasionally. You never know, you might grab a bargain.

A Rex 5001 on eBay, but fairly pricing

Rex 5001 on eBay. But at an unreasonable price in my view. I guess that as these things get more and more rare they'll get more expensive too. Even so, this is a lot. I certainly wouldn't pay it.

Up to you if you would.
