PalmOne Drives Your Life With 4GB

The new LifeDrive mobile manager offers Bluetooth and Wi-Fi connectivity built-in, as well as a 4GB hard drive.

First, it isn't 4GB, but more like 3.85GB of usable storage. But that's ok. Most users of the LifeDrive will find there is plenty of room to tote around e-mails, documents, PowerPoint presentations, plus songs, photos, and videos.

One benefit of the hard drive will be seen by users who let the battery run out of power. While that would lead to data loss on older Palm devices, the hard drive won't be affected by a loss of power. Charging the battery restores the LifeDrive to functionality.

The LifeDrive supports drag and drop file movement. And a new feature, Drive Mode, lets a user plug into a USB port on a Mac or on a PC without Palm desktop software and manage files. Drive Mode lets a user edit a file without placing a copy of it on the foreign machine, a valuable security enhancement.

Like some previous models, the LifeDrive can display in landscape mode, useful for working with spreadsheets. The sterling Documents To Go package comes with a new LifeDrive, allowing users to edit Microsoft Word and Excel files as in previous editions. The latest version 7 now lets users display and edit PowerPoint files too.

An expansion card slot supports SD, SDIO, and MultiMediaCard formats. And the 320x480 display offers 65,000 colors. The LifeDrive retails for $499.
