# Handera 330
I am typing this on my new (to me) Handera 330, using a Palm
III style GoType Keyboard. This handheld did NOT come with
the AAA terminals and battery cover. So I am left with an
extremely old lithium battery and a 12VDC charger. I will
have to keep my eyes open for another available unit as in
_current year_ running this style of handheld untethered
requires the AAA terminals! I may explore custom battery
rebuild sites as an option. I wonder what they'd charge
to rebuild the lithium ion pack? I wonder if I could have
them build me a second one? The deal breaker may be the
integrated battery door.
The screen is gorgeous. The backlight is indiglo and very
nice to look at. This unit does have a barely perceptable
whine when the backlight is on.
I have a 4gb CF card inserted and true to PalmInfoCenter's
word, this card is detected and works. Four gigabytes is
truly overkill for this handheld though. I do not think I
could fill that if I tried on a PalmOS 3.5 device.
I do own a Symbol Spectrum CF type 1 WiFi card. Handera
wrote a driver for this card but I haven't located it. I
was originally on their website, but is not there now.
Handera.com was last updated in 2012 and so far, emails to
them have not been answered (and likely will never be). I
will keep searching for this. There seemed to be a community
of doctors that used this device. It may be this avenue of
searching that wil locate the software I am looking for.
Right now, this is a stay at home, tethered to power GoType
terminal. In its current state it will never have a chance
of unseating my Sony Clie PEG-UX50 as a carry device. Maybe
being the zero distraction typing handheld is its destiny?
