18.4. Fourth Generation: Palm IIIx and Palm V

Two new models debuted in February 1999: the Palm IIIx and Palm V; their low-cost sibling, the IIIe, arrived a few months later. Aside from the physical characteristics described below, one of the most important internal changes was the introduction of a new processor — the Motorola Dragonball EZ (instead of the traditional Dragonball). While similar to its predecessor in many ways, this chip accepts less expensive memory modules, which means that these models' list prices may slip downward even more rapidly than usual.

The accompanying new Palm OS, version 3.1, offers chip compatibility, but no new features. (You can't install this new OS on any previous model, not that it would do you any good.)
