When I bought my first Palm handheld computer, applications were monochrome and generally less than thirty kilobytes. With the advent of color, applications more and more are hovering in the 200 KB range, particularly web browsers and other Internet applications. Perhaps that's why Card Access, has released the Thinmodem Plus (TM+), so users can now store some of their applications in the TM+'s flash memory.
The Thinmodem Plus is based on the original Thinmodem
module, but is now a 56Kbps modem and has approximately 7.5 MB of space
available for storing applications and data.
The TM+ comes with several applications: Browse-It, One-Touch email, and File Mover. Also included is a real-time modem status monitor that is available at all times by tapping on the lower right-hand corner of the Visor's screen.
The Thinmodem Plus has one of the most comprehensive and user friendly
setup programs you will find on the Palm operating system. The first time
you insert the module, Thinmodem+ Setup appears
to give you an overview of the TM+'s features and helps you configure your
Network Prefs settings for dialing in.
