They make loads of stuff, but the only PalmOS device they make (AFAIK) is the Dana.

Their main angle seems to be Word Processing - They sell a lot of devices which are basically typewriters with little LCD screens that display what you type. You can upload the text into a compy too (Some have IR ports and others act as keyboards when you plug them into a compy); I've seen lots of schools that use them for typing practice (The keyboards a VERY comfortable to type on!)

Well,
the Dana is targeted at schools and not at single consumers, who are much better off with their Tungsten series...
