About

 The Palm OS Platform and Palm Pilot devices were originally created by UsRobotics. However, because UsRobotics operations are now handled by 3COM, 3COM has been releasing Palm Pilots after the Palm Pilot Professional.

The Palm Pilots are a handheld devices that fit into the palm of your hand. These devices allow for an end-user to store information such as phone numbers, addresses, dates, notes, and other useful items. The device connects to your computer, which allows information to be transferred from your computer to your Palm Pilot. Because of its size the device has no keyboard instead uses a method of writing called 'Graffiti' shown on this page.
