Introduction
About the Modem Charging Cradle
The Modem Charging Cradle enables a telephone connection to a host
computer. Palm Tungsten E2 handheld users can access and transfer
critical information as easily as making a phone call. The cradle
communicates via serial transmission with the Palm handheld. Before it
can transfer data over the telephone line, the cradle will require third party
software to be installed on the handheld.
NOTE
Palm does not support HotSync over a serial connection, thus
HotSync is not a supported application for this device.
Minimum Requirements
The following minimum requirements must be met for the network,
handheld and desktop computer to work together:
•
Palm Tungsten E2 or compatible handheld
•
Power Adapter
•
Modem Charging Cradle
•
RJ11 phone cable
•
A desktop computer connected to a V.34 (or later) modem.
