Configuring PalmOS mobile devices
People with properly configured mobile devices can connect to MIT's e-mail services when they're on the go. PalmOS devices with built-in wireless connections like the Tungsten C, or add-on wireless options like the Tungsten T3/5 or the Zire 72 allow access to e-mail on campus or wherever wireless connections exists. With cell phone/PDA devices like the Treo people can roam even further afield.
IS&T is offering a clinic to help configure PalmOS mobile devices for MIT e-mail in the N42 Demo Center from 2 to 3:30 p.m. on five days: Thursday, Feb. 10; Monday, Feb. 14; Friday, Feb. 18; Thursday, Feb. 24; and Monday, Feb. 28.
On Feb. 10, IS&T is turning N42 into a "cell-phone shopping mall." Representatives from MIT cell phone vendors who provide cell phone/PDAs that run on the PalmOS will be available to discuss anything related to cell phones. Cingular and Sprint representatives will be availabe from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. The T-Mobile and Verizon Wireless representatives will be available from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
