Initial development[ edit ] Pilot was the name of the first generation of personal digital assistants manufactured by Palm Computing in by then a division of U.
Before starting development of the Pilot, Hawkins said he carried a block of wood, the size of the potential Pilot, in his pocket for a week.
After the out-of-court settlement in of a trademark infringement lawsuit brought by the Pilot Pen Corporationthe company no longer used that name,  instead referring to its handheld devices as Palm Connected Organizers or more commonly as "Palms".
The first Palms, the Pilot and Pilothad no infrared portbacklightor flash memorybut did have a serial communications port. This was done with the purchase of an upgrade module sold by Palm, and the replacement of some internal hardware components. Originally, it was conceived that all Palm PDAs were to be hardware-upgradable to an extent, but ultimately, this capability gave way to external memory slots and firmware-upgradable flash memory after the Palm III series.
Subsequent generations [ edit ] The next couple of Palms, the PalmPilot Personal and PalmPilot Professionalhad backlit screens, but no infrared port or flash memory. They used version 2 of the Palm OS.
Palm IIIand all the following Palms, did not have the word "Pilot" in their name due to the previously mentioned trademark dispute.
The latter allowed the user to upgrade Palm OS, or, with some external applications, to store programs or data in flash memory.
It ran on two standard AAA batteries. It was able to retain enough energy for 10—15 minutes to prevent data loss during battery replacement. It had 2 megabytes of memory, large at the time, and used Palm OS 3.
Palm also produced an upgrade card for the Pilot series, which made them functionally equivalent to a Palm III. Meanwhile, with Palm Computing now a subsidiary of 3Comthe founders felt they had insufficient control over the development of the Palm product. As a result, they left 3Com and founded Handspring in June Handspring went on to produce the Handspring Visora clone of the Palm handhelds that included a hardware expansion slot early Palm devices also had a hardware expansion slot, however this was for device upgrade purposes, not peripherals and used slightly modified software.

The next versions of Palm used Palm OS 3. It used Palm OS 3. Palm IIIc was the first Palm handheld with a color screen. Some of these newer handhelds, for example Palm V, used internal rechargeable batteries.
Later, this feature became standard for all Palms. Palm handhelds up to contained Motorola DragonBall processors, part of the Motorola family. As ARM had previously been used in the Apple Newton series, the platform had significant investment in mobile and low-power applications.
Later history [ edit ] Palm Computing was spun off into its own company called Palm Incorporated in Handspring later merged with Palm to form palmOne in when Palm Inc. InpalmOne acquired the full rights to the Palm name by purchasing the shared rights PalmSource owned and changed names back to Palm again.
Palm handhelds continued to advance, including the ability to access computer hard drives via USB cables, and began to merge with smartphones. It became widely expected that Palm handhelds as a PDA-only device would disappear as multifunction handhelds like the Treo declined in price.
Multifunction handhelds generally include a wider range of abilities traditionally found in separate devices, for example: The Zire 71 and 72 series also had these additional features. Different in overall appearance from the Treo, it was most notably thinner.
The Centro was a somewhat successful smartphone, combining many features with a decreased price. In order to try to change this trend Palm had been working on a new web-based operating system webOS which was an embedded Linux operating system that hosts a custom user interface built on standard web browser technology and offered genuine multi-tasking capabilities through a card based concept where each application ran as a card and the use of gestures to navigate between cards and perform actions.
This platform won much respect from its peers including praise from Steve Jobs the noted entrepreneur and founder of Apple but was compromised by some of the shortcuts taken in the hardware for the initial webOSand indeed Palm's final device offerings, the Palm Preand Palm Pixi.
With the acquisition of Palm by HP, the next device to market was the Pre2, which did address the screen and processor issues.
This was followed in by the HP Veer and the HP Pre3, the former being a compact design the world's smallest smartphone not much bigger than a credit card on release and the latter showing the hardware potential to compete in the demanding smartphone market, that had expanded to include Google's Androidbefore Leo Apothekerthen HP CEO, abruptly pulled the plug on webOS in Augustwhich caused a dip in HP share value.
Apotheker was ousted from Hewlett-Packard later in the year, due in part to criticisms behind his handling of webOS.
His successor, Meg Whitmanreaffirmed HP's decision to discontinue the sale and production of webOS hardware devices; Palm's legacy was later maintained by Whitman's decision to support webOS on the software side by taking steps toward open-sourcing webOS and opening it to hardware partners.
It weighs about 2. The new device was announced as being exclusive to Verizon Wirelessonly available as an add-on to an existing device plan.
