3Com Offers New Palm Organizer

LAWYERS who have joined the bandwagon of professionals addicted to PalmPilot handheld computers no doubt will be excited about news that PALM Computing Inc. has announced the release of the Palm III connected organizer.

Running on Palm OS 3.0 and offering 2 MB of RAM, the Palm III features seamless desktop synchronization, fast data access and and ease of use, says the Santa Clara, Calif.-based Palm, a 3Com company. The Palm III also offers infrared beaming capabilities, increased memory, a new design for increased durability and comfort and an optimized interface, reports Palm. Users can share records and applications wirelessly by simply "beaming" information into another user's Palm III organizer at the touch of a button, the company advises.

The computer can synchronize data over corporate Intranets and the Internet, using Palm's enhanced HotSync technology, the company says.

32-Bit Amicus Attorney III Debuts

GAVEL & GOWN Software Inc.'s new 32-bit version of its popular practice management software -- Amicus Attorney III -- is scheduled for an April 27 release, the Toronto-based company has announced.

Using Amicus Attorney III, lawyers will be able to access the Internet using familiar Amicus tools, such as the contacts module, which will become a "lawyer's library" of Web, FTP and newsgroup bookmarks, organized within the context of their law practice, reports G&G. New features include enhanced document and report options, as well as a new multimedia calendar offering spoken appointment reminders and the ability to "hot-sync" calendar and contact information with Palm Pilot, G&G adds. Users also will be able to send e-mail directly from a contact's "business card," says G&G, noting that training tools -- including a video and manual -- will be part of the package.

Amicus Attorney is jurisdiction-independent, G&G says, and is designed for both private and in-house practitioners.
