TDK Blue 5 Bluetooth Module

TDK Blue 5 systems connects the Vx without the cable. Simply connect blue5 to your PalmV or Vx, and you can communicate via Bluetooth to other Bluetooth-enabled devices like mobile phones, PC Cards and USB adaptors. Connect your Palm to a mobile phone with blue5 and you're connected - via GSM for high speed GPRS or HSCSD connections - to the Internet. Powered by the Palm battery, software running on the Palm enables it to control almost all the functions of a mobile phone over the Bluetooth link, which means you can access the full power of Internet-based information services from anywhere, at any time.

The Palm Vx was a personal digital assistant made by the Palm Computing division of 3Com. It benefited from the sleek design and low weight of its predecessor, the Palm V, while increasing the available storage to 8 MB. At 114 grams, it was one of the lightest models ever offered by Palm. Retail price at launch was US$299.
