The Palm IIIc was released on February 22, 2000 by HP. The device uses a lithium ion rechargeable battery, as opposed to the disposable batteries used in previous models. The organizer comes with a charging cradle.
It also comes with a stylus which can be used in corroboration with the device's handwriting recognition technology, for easy note taking. Most devices in the Palm III series, the Palm IIIc included, run on a Motorola 68000 processor.
The Palm IIIc is a black box-like PDA with a flip-open cover. There are 4 black buttons under the screen with a green power button on the left side. It has 2 arrow keys for up and down scrolling. There is a drawing pad touch screen under the general menu screen with a touch button in each corner. There is also a reset button on the back middle near the top.
The model/I.D. number can be found on the back side and is right under the bar code.
The next generation of the Palm IIIc was the Palm V, which saw many upgrades, including had a sleeker anodized aluminum design and increased memory.
