Believe it or not, it's been 10 years since Palm launched its first handhelds. The company has come a long way since then, and it's been an action-packed decade of operating-system and software developments, partnerships, speed bumps and, of course, product launches.
CNET News.com invites you to take a trip down memory lane to witness the gradual modernization of Palm's PDAs over time. This group represents some of the company's milestones and highlights--and heck, it's fun to compare today's sleek handhelds with old clunkers.
The PalmPilot 1000 and 5000 debuted in 1996 with 128K of memory, a 16MHz DragonBall processor, the Palm OS 1.0 and a display with a resolution of 160 pixels by 160 pixels. Palm shipped 1 million PalmPilots within 18 months, but the "Pilot" moniker was eventually dropped from the device's name for legal reasons.
