Posted on 23-Feb-2004 21:23 | Tags Filed under: News

PalmSource and Group Sense PDA Limited have announced the G88 Palm Powered GSM smartphone during the 3GSM World Congress 2004.

Following the Palm Powered Xplore G18 launch last year, the Palm Powered G88 is a full-featured smartphone that integrates traditional Palm OS PIM functionality and telephony features in a sleek and compact form factor. The Xplore G88 runs Palm OS 4.1.2 and features a built-in 320 x 240 digital camera with digital zoom; 16 MB RAM/16 MB ROM/22MB Flash Internal Memory Card; high quality color 2.2 inch D-TFD 65K colors LCD screen; and SMS / MMS / WAP / e-mail / Java support. It also features a slide hard numeric keypad and one-handed navigation 5-way jog dial to fit the natural habits of mobile phone users. GSPDA reports that it is currently talking with several operators to bring the G88 to market this summer.

"The modular architecture of the Palm OS platform allows GSPDA to create innovative smartphones for the growing wireless market," said Francis Li, executive director marketing and business development, GSPDA. "We will continue to collaborate with PalmSource to enrich our wireless product offerings and expand our reach into new market segments."

"We believe that the new G88 demonstrates GSPDA's continued track record to bring innovative and easy to use Palm Powered smartphones to market," said David Nagel, president and chief executive officer of PalmSource. "GSPDA is not only an innovator in Palm Powered smartphone design, they also embrace their development efforts with a cutting-edge time to market approach."
