From AllNetDevices:

Pitch for Palm from Mobility Electronics allows users to present dynamic presentations using Palm handhelds.

Users create a slideshow at the office and synchronizing the show to their Palm handheld or SD Expansion Card. Then users clip Pitch for Palm to the back of any Palm m125, m130, m500, m505, m515 or i705 handheld -- and attach the handheld to a video projector or video monitor. In seconds, the presentation is ready for viewing -- no laptop re-booting, reconfiguring external video ports or re-setting laptop video driver settings required.

Users can view slides and notes on their Palm handheld while presenting, and because the solution offers simultaneous charging, the handheld will remain fully charged even after a lengthy presentation. In addition, the product is bundled with a travel kit, which safely and compactly carries the Palm handheld, the presentation solution and travel charger.

Pitch for Palm will be available beginning this summer through Ingram Micro and iGo; pricing will begin at $279. For more information on the product, please visit www.igo.com/pitch.

Mobility Electronics, Inc., also unveiled "Juice," a universally-compatible power adapter that provides both AC/DC and DC/DC capabilities in a sleek, compact form factor.

Juice combines the functionality of an AC adapter and an auto/air adapter into a single power product. It is the only mobile adapter that can power notebooks from any power source, according to the company. Juice is compatible with all major notebook brands and plugs into any standard wall outlet, auto outlet, or air outlet, the company said. In addition to powering notebook computers, Juice can also simultaneously power a second mobile device such as a cell phone or handheld/PDA.

Juice eliminates the need to carry a separate notebook AC adapter, notebook auto-air adapter, mobile phone power adapter, handheld/PDA power adapter and spare batteries. Business travelers and other mobile device users can now replace those numerous items with a single adapter.

Mobility Electronics will announce general availability of Juice later this summer. Additional information about the product is available on Mobility Electronics' Web site, at www.mobilityelectronics.com and the current price is listed at $99.

This is somewhat similar to what Presenter-to-Go offer. Only there the presentation and the connecting device is held on a SD card. Even less bother to carry. Although this does not cover the power supply issue...

I think I still prefer the Presenter to Go, because it offers a CF option for the 330...and "those things"

Speaking of Presenter-to-Go, I got this off of AllNetDevices:

Presentations via Palm's Secure Digital Slot Unveiled

MARGI Systems, maker of Presenter-to-Go, announced yesterday that a Secure Digital (SD) solution for Palm handhelds with the Palm Expansion Slot is now available. The solution involves a secure digital card attached to a cable, which then attaches to a projector.

Presenter-to-Go offers Palm m125, m130, m500, m505, m515 and i705 handheld users a solution for the delivery of high-quality color presentations, allowing documents created in PowerPoint or any printable PC application to be transferred directly to their Palm handhelds and displayed at 1024 x 768 resolution.

Presenter-to-Go allows speakers to create presentations from multiple applications such as PowerPoint, HTML and Microsoft Word. Additionally, the Presenter-to-Go SD solution for Palm handhelds includes an annotation feature, which enables educators to instantly project notes taken on their handhelds during their presentations.

The MARGI Mirror feature allows users to present handheld content and applications direct from their Palm handhelds to the screen.

MARGIís Presenter-to-Go application allows users to selectively hide/show slides, drag and drop slides, view slide text and presentation notes, and continuously loop slide shows.

A 14-button infrared remote control comes bundled with MARGIís Presenter-to-Go for ease of presentation, eliminating the need for the speaker to hold on to their handheld device while presenting.

Presenter-to-Go sells for $199 and is available on the MARGI Systems Web site: www.margi.com, and from resellers.

It almost seems like Margi copped out on their SD product. Instead of either putting it inside the card (Which would have utterly astounded me) or putting it on an extension that juts out from the card slot (Like a CF modem, for example), they put a card in the slot and then run a wire to it from the guts. It still works, but I was looking forward to another card-integrated SDIO device.

Yeah, but still better than an laptop solution. I like the annotation feature of adding something like a note last-minute to the presentation and still being able to show it on the fly. But at $199 a pop it certainly is targeting the enterprise, forget showing slides of the family vacation with this sucker...might as well buy a slide projector.

Actually, I don't get nearly as bad a case of sticker shock from that as I do from the projectors themselves. When I first saw the CF II version of the Margi product hit the shelves, I was thinking that I would get one of those, get a multimedia projector for another $200 US, maybe $300 US at the most. I would then have a great mobile presentation solution. However, I was shocked to learn that the projectors cost anywhere from the mid $1000 US to $3000 US and up range, depending on quality. I just can't deal with a price that high. However, given the projectors already in place around my university, I think I like this better than a laptop solution, both for size and price.
