Corsoft Plug2Net brings wireless connectivity to Palm OS devices
Need to access the internet from your Palm OS device and prefer to do it without wires but don't have Bluetooth? Corsoft Plug2Net will help you share your desktop or laptop Internet connection via infrared.

The Plug2Net solution from Corsoft includes Palm OS software, Windows PC software and a small portable IR adapter. Plug2Net provides a simple answer to the challenges faced by those who travel with a device not equipped with a wireless connection.

The Plug2Net solution enables users of devices not equipped for mobile connectivity to access the Internet using an infrared adapter (plugged into the USB port of a Windows PC) or via a serial interface.

From an Internet-connected Windows PC, users download the Plug2Net desktop software from Corsoft’s Web site and within minutes will be able to access email, browse the Internet or manage corporate data using infrared beaming or serial interface via the PC. The software acts as a router, allowing Internet messages to pass through the computer's connection to and from the handheld.

The software also help users to connect to the Internet by using either a serial or infrared interface to a mobile phone. Plug2Net provides one-tap connection to most cellular carriers in the U.S. with an option to define custom configuration. The phone interface provides users with simplified dial-up connectivity.

The Plug2Net adapter is a very small (thumb-sized) device with an infrared port and includes a retractable cable. The adapter simply attaches to the USB port on any Internet-connected Windows PC. The thumb-sized Plug2Net adapter is only 1.8” x 0.7” x 0.3” and the entire Plug2Net solution is available for US$99.95, including one year of Corsoft’s Aileron email application for free (a US$49.95 value). A Bluetooth enabled version is being developed and will be commercially available in the near future.

Corsoft also makes Aileron, an e-mail solution for Palm OS devices.
