US developer Pilot Island Publishing has today launched what it claims is the world?s first multimedia device for 3Com?s Palmpilot handheld computer.
The Palmparrot is a snap-on sound card allowing users to record and play back notes, memos and reminders.
It also includes a voice recognition program that lets users access and execute various programs on the Palmpilot.
The Parrot, which runs on 2 AAA batteries and has a built-in microphone and stereo headphone jack, costs $129.
A software developers' kit will be available in the first quarter of next year.
The launch was announced as 3Com opened the doors to its Palm Computing worldwide developers' conference in the US.
