features of PalmOne's hot selling Treo 600 smart phone.
"The Treo 600 is revolutionizing the smart phone marketplace.", said
George Henne, President of NS BASIC Corporation. "It is clearly the
future of Palm OS devices. By adding extensions to NS Basic/Palm to
use the additional features of the Treo, we have made it easy to
create cool Treo apps."
The new Treo library adds over 40 Treo specific functions. From an NS
Basic program, it is easy to send SMS messages and email. It is also
easy to do http and TCP/IP operations, as well as dial and access the
Treo address book.
There are no additional runtime or per user fees for the new library,
making it cost effective for enterprise applications. The entire
existing base of NS Basic applications will run on Treo devices.
The new version is available immediately for $149.95 USD. Upgrades for
existing users start at $49.95. Customers who already have NS
Basic/Palm 4 or bought after October 1, 2003 are entitled to the
upgrade at no charge. Existing NS Basic programs are upwardly
compatible with the new version.
