Aimed at users who need to manage and carry lots of digital files, and who are eager to take full advantage of the trend toward everything being digital, new "Digital Managers" are in the works from PalmOne, and represent a new type of mobile device
. No specific details are available yet, only that the devices will be set up to carry a lot of information.
"In studying customer trends, we found that some people want to carry dozens of documents and hundreds of songs while others want to carry a thousand-plus photos and enjoy videos," Page Murray, palmOne's vice president of marketing, said in a statement. "Organization functions were highly valued by nearly all our customers, but some wanted much more business and personal file-management capabilities. We listened and will deliver a new category of mobile-computing product that will let customers fuse their own mix of personal and business content in ways never before possible in either handheld computers or smartphones."
