Handpsring Japan to Introduce Wireless Module

Handspring Inc said on Friday that it will release in Japan this year a wireless communications module for its Visor handheld computer in an increasingly competitive market for personal digital assistants.

Handspring’s local unit said it will tie up with Japan Communications Inc and Tokyo Telecommunications Network Co (TTNet), to sell wireless Springboard modules from this autumn priced at 10,000-15,000 yen ($84-126).

Japan’s PDA market is heating up as global industry leader Palm Inc (NasdaqNM:PALM – news) and local players like Sharp Corp and Sony Corp prepare to introduce new models and add wireless capabilities to their handheld PCs.

Handspring said it hopes to sell 100,000 of the wireless “Smartcom for Visor” modules per year, which will run on a more limited — but more cost-effective — wireless network in Japan called PHS, or Personal Handyphone System.
