Palm m500

The Palm m500 was the first personal digital assistant in the m500 series. It improved on the Palm V series with a faster processor, USB sync interface, vibrating alarms, and mechanical case fastenings instead of hot-glue.

Physically it was slightly smaller than the Palm V but had the same resolution screen (160x160). Initally monochrome, later models would feature a colour display and larger memory capacity.
