The Palm III, the next version of 3Com's personal digital assistant (PDA), will be out in May.
Palm Computing, a division of 3Com, announced last week that the Palm III organ-iser will run on a new generation operating system.
Palm III users will be able to share applications and records via wireless links between each other's organisers, the company said.
The Palm III will have 2MB of RAM so it will be able to store 6000 addresses, five years of appointments -- or about 3000 entries, 1500 memos and 200 e-mail messages.
It also will be flash upgradeable so operating system software can be updated without the need to buy a new memory card.
The organiser also will be able to synchronise data over corporate intranets and the Internet.
The new version of the organiser will be bundled with a CD-ROM containing third-party applications, including a calculator, world clock, World Wide Web channel manager, drawing software, Microsoft Outlook 97 and games.
