Palm released a new Zire entry level model offering more memory and software applications on a faster processor, the Palm Zire 21 (NZ$239).
The new model comes with 8MB ram, running on a new and faster 126MHz Texas Instruments OMAP processor. The new release comes with Palm OS 5.2.1, featuring the classic Palm PIM (Personal Information Management) applications (Date Book, Address Book, Note Pad, To Do List, Memo Pad, and Calculator).
Named a best product of 2002 by BusinessWeek and PC Magazine, the original Palm Zire handheld has been the fastest-selling handheld in Palm's history, with more than 1 million units flying off shelves since its introduction last year. The sleek and elegant Zire handheld also won a Gold award in the 2003 Industrial Design Excellence Awards (IDEA) competition, co-sponsored by the Industrial Designers Society of America (IDSA) and BusinessWeek magazine, proving that excellence does not have to come in an expensive package.
