PalmOne has unveiled two new models in its entry-level Zire handheld range.
The most sophisticated device, the Zire 72, comes with a built-in digital camera, MP3 player and Bluetooth wireless, and will ship for around $299 (£169).
"The Zire 72 handheld works as hard as it plays. Now you can shoot photos, capture and watch video clips or create and edit Word and Excel-compatible files," said Ken Wirt, palmOne senior vice president and general manager of the handheld business unit.
The Zire 72, with its built-in 1.2-megapixel camera, is the first PDA from PalmOne to enable video capture. Users can watch video clips on the device's 320 x 320 colour screen.
Its cheaper and more basic sibling, the Zire 31, adds colour, memory expansion and MP3 functionality to the company's current popular low-end Zire handheld, along with photo viewer and revamped personal information management software.
PalmOne said it was targeting the Zire 31 at 'value-conscious' students and parents and claimed that the device, with an expected US retail price of $149, is the first full-colour, full-featured handheld to hit the market for less than $150.
