PocketMail for Palms

SAN FRANCISCO (03/21/2000) - Got a Palm in your pocket--and want to check your e-mail over the telephone? PocketScience Inc., whose PocketMail service works with devices such as Sharp's TelMail TM-20 and JVC's HC-E100, has developed a $99 device that extends the $10-a-month service to Palms. Basically a modem with an acoustic coupler, the PocketMail BackFlip snaps onto the docking port of any Palm handheld--from the Palm Professional/IBM WorkPad to the Palm VII.

Just dial up the service (a toll-free number in the United States), push the speaker and microphone at the rear of the BackFlip against the phone receiver, push a button, and in seconds your mail is on its way. You can configure your PocketMail account to retrieve and forward mail from your other POP3 e-mail accounts, and the unit's background-noise cancellation technology lets it work in loud environments. PocketScience will have a tough time getting this one back from me! PocketScience; www.pocketscience.com; 800/390-5036.
