Part III: Beyond the Basics > Outlook and the Palm

Chapter 16. Outlook and the Palm

The Palm is an engineering marvel. It is roughly 5'' by 3'', weighs less than 6 ounces, and is powered by a Motorola 68328 processor. The Palm IIIx is based on version 3.01 of the Palm OS, which occupies a paltry 40K of the 4 MB of installed memory. That, incidentally, is roughly 100 times smaller than the base code for Windows 98. Of course, the Palm does not do everything Windows 98 does, but it was not designed as a desktop operating system—it was designed to supplement your desktop operating system. On the other hand, Windows 98 does not fit in your pocket, either.

This chapter is not about using the Palm; we assume our readers have already figured out how to turn it on, write memos in Graffiti, and make a calendar entry. If you are new to the Palm, there are a number of excellent books out there on the subject; if you are just starting out with this marvelous little tool and need a good general guide, we recommend David Pogue's PalmPilot: The Ultimate Guide (O'Reilly & Associates).
