The PalmInfoCenter just dispatched a Palm Z22 loaner unit to my location for review. A review requires a load of time; so here are the first impresions of the package contents of this consumer-oriented device.
The Palm Z22 ships in a blister similar to the Palm Tungsten E2′s one. However, we didn’t get the full blister; we got just the box:
By the way, the box contains a little RFID tag – it can get annoying when entering a store:
The contained hardware mostly is standard Palm stuff. The charger that ships with the Z22 lacks the interchangeable wall plugs, and the hotsync cable has no hotsync button:
Palm ships a flexiskin-like housing with the Palm Z22:
The really ineresting stuff however isn’t the hardware. Palm ships loads of paper along the Z22 – paper that made me think!
The first thing is the get started sheet. This is nothing new: but customers get a real poster this time:
The addon mag contains ads for hardware(none that fits the Z22) and for software. The interesting thing is that many third party products are mentioned…
The ‘mini manual’ is actually more than just a Palm manual – it also contains loads of hints on how to plan your life(no joke).
Screen protector and Grafitti stickers – nothing new here:
Last but not least, here is a first photo of the Palm Z22:
Overall, one immediately sees that the Palm Z22 is targetted at end customers. Posters, a little book on how to organize yourself, a non-global charger – many things that save cash and won’t hurt an end consumer(while killing businessman acceptability). The machine didn’t power on yet – so, more news tomorrow!
