# New Palm Device Coming
### Entered on Sony Clie PEG UX50 in CardTXT
### Soundtrack - metal playing on an iPod Video
So, of all the PalmOS devices I owned in the 90s and
early 2000s, the one I think most fondly of was the
Handspring Treo 90. I had the Treo 270 afterward.
Still liked the Treo 90 the best. The form factor is
killer. I still had mine when I moved to Wyoming in
2005... lost it sometime between then and now.
Tonight I found one complete in box with everything
it came with new. In the pics, it looks new. Having
been bit more than once on older devices (how
about every single time?), I bought a replacement
battery at the same time.
Since the Treo 90 lacks wireless com, I plan on using
IR to my UX50 to offload data. The UX50 can FTP
to a Raspberry Pi I setup just for this purpose, over
a WEP secured (ha!) WiFi network (with mac filtering
enabled). I can also sync Yanoff on my UX50 and
beam the DB.
Why? Because I remember fondly the sexiness. Because the
Treo 90 is a solid device. Because CardTXT will run on
it. It has a color screen and an SD card slot yet it
runs on a Dragonball CPU. I have a metric shit ton of
software for pre-arm Palms. As an after thought, I need
to also buy a USB power cable for it... done. In this case
Amazon was cheaper than eBay. Having an AC charger only
is definitely not as handy.
