Palm devices to add color screens

Palm Computing will release its first device with a color display in February, according to sources close to the company.

The debut of Palm Computing’s new color handheld, dubbed the Palm IIIc, will coincide with the 3Com business unit’s initial public offering, also expected in February.

The move to implement color screens is at odds with public statements by Palm executives, who have repeatedly cited an emphasis on design simplicity and an aversion to the technology constraints imposed by including color displays – such as shorter battery life, a bulkier size and higher costs.
