Nuggets: Turn your Palm into a camera

Take snaps with your Palm... No really.
Written by Justin Pearse, Contributor on

Palm fanatics are always looking for new uses for their beloved little organisers. Up step those nice folks at Kodak with a little something for them to play with.

The PalmPix camera is a very small device that clips onto the bottom of a Palm and turns it into a digital camera.

It has a fixed focus lens, 2X digital zoom and self-timer. Images are stored on the Palm, with each taking up about 100K of memory. Pictures can be viewed on the Palm's screen as greyscale images and then transferred to a PC through the HotSync cradle. They're then stored as JPEG or bitmap files, to be viewed as standard 640 x 480 images.

The camera is compatible with the whole Palm range and comes with Presto! Mr. Photo for editing, sharing and storing photos, and Image Carousel, a slide show and screen saver programme.

It starts shipping in the States next month for $179. No details yet on UK pricing or launch dates, but you can always buy it online.
