“In a market with many new entries, the HandEra 330 distinguishes itself through innovative engineering, high quality and affordability,” said Michael Downey, chairman and CEO of HandEra, Inc. “The HandEra 330 is a high-end, superior handheld computing device that is flexible enough for the most demanding corporate environments, yet practical and reasonably priced for everyday use.”
High Resolution Screen
With crisp, legible text and images, a twenty-five percent larger viewing screen (240 x 320 display) and three times more pixels, the HandEra 330 demonstrates significant advances in screen quality and resolution. The HandEra 330 is the only Palm Powered device with a quarter VGA (QVGA) screen. Virtual Graffiti offers an additional screen viewing area, while screen rotation allows users to view wider spreadsheet columns, read e-books more easily in landscape mode and view images with fewer limitations. A variety of other screen features unique to the new device include better backlighting, legible inking graffiti, and a broad choice of font sizes.
Two Expansion Slots for Memory and Add-ons
In addition to its 2MB of internal Flash memory and 8MB of internal RAM, the HandEra 330 is the only handheld computing device to include two expansion slots — Secure Digital (SD) and CompactFlash(TM) (CF) that can be used to increase memory to over 1GB, or to add on a variety of devices and accessories. As a result, users can take advantage of add-ons like wireless modems, Ethernet cards, digital phone cards and bar code scanners, with the additional memory needed to fully utilize these accessories.
