PalmOne intros new models

PalmOne today introduced a new model, the Zire 31, and upgraded the Zire 71 to the Zire 72. More importantly, they've reaffirmed their support for the Mac market, despite PalmSource (a separate company responsible for the Palm OS itself) having indicated previously that Palm OS 6.0 (Code name Cobalt) would ship with no Mac support.

Since Cobalt isn't shipping yet, this isn't an immediate concern, but it's another reason why I ended up not sticking with their product. If PalmOne finds some way to work around this, they may yet see some of my business. Note to PalmOne, evaluation units gladly accepted...
