The Parachute™, a slim, clip-on PC-Card (PCMCIA) slot, which enables a Palm™ device to have connectivity never before available.
With the Parachute and a PC-card, users can log onto their company’s database, check the weather, surf their favorite sites on the Web, and send and receive e-mail message. The Parachute™ lets users put a portable office and message center in their pocket for only $149.99.
By using the PCMCIA standard form factor the Parachute enables users to use off-the-shelf cards for their productivity needs instead of proprietary devices.
Only as thick as a AAA battery, the tiny card slot can free users from pagers and laptops and give in-the-field access to fast modems, wireless devices and data storage.
The parachute enables computing, scheduling, paging and voice and e-mail communication capabilities.
