Handheld firm Palm looks set to launch a range of Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), with many of the features of the colour M500 range but costing around £150 less.
The new mono machine, the M125, could arrive as early as 24 August at a price point of £199. It would supersede existing M100 and M105 models.
Earlier this year, Palm said that many of the features of its just-launched M500 colour-screened range would be incorporated into a new model later in the year. You can read our review of the M505 here.
Palm hasn't officially commented on spec sheets leaked to geek.com, but these reports say the new model features Palm's standardised connector and SD expansion slot, a 33Mhz processor, 8Mb of RAM and 4Mb of Mask ROM.
The unit's reliance on ROM means it can't be upgraded.
The SD connector allows the PDA to be linked to a range of peripherals. These can store large applications, such as dictionaries, transfer data from digital cameras, and add hardware capabilities like wireless networking.
Palm, for so long dominant in the market, has come under pressure from more expensive machines offering more functionality, such as Compaq's iPaq, which has made inroads into Palm's lead in the market.
The handheld maker is also faced with a lawsuit after users alleged that the serial port of their PC was damaged after they hooked up their Palm to the PC to transfer data.
The damage rendered the PCs unable to start up.
