U.S. Handspring Users Now Have Access to Unlimited Removable Memory


Portable Innovation Technology, Ltd. (PIT), provider of high value add-on accessories for handheld computing, today announced the availability in the United States of the MemPlug(TM) SmartMedia(TM) Adaptor. The MemPlug is a Springboard(TM) module for the HandSpring(TM) Visor(TM) that provides unlimited storage using SmartMedia cards. It will be sold throughout the United States in major retail stores at a suggested price of U.S. $49.95.

PIT’s MemPlug SmartMedia Adaptor is the first and only product that allows Handspring Visor users to leverage standard SmartMedia cards for removable storage. The product comes with six software applications enabling the user to view documents, images and video, and backup and manage files while they are on the go. The MemPlug works with the Handspring Springboard expansion slot so that the module applications automatically self-install once inserted.

“Users of handheld devices often have a need for additional memory, particularly to accommodate large files such as e-books, images and video,” said Patrick Lin, director, Portable Innovation Technology. “PIT is the first company to address this issue by providing Handspring Visor users a solution that has flexible and scalable file storage, internal RAM backup and multimedia capabilities at an affordable price.”
