|The Targus PalmPilot |
case is a black leather case designed to fit the PalmPilot, Palm III, and IBM WorkPad.
This case is constructed with the usual Targus quality: strong stitching, stiff leather,
and overall good construction. It has the Targus logo on the front, and the inside has a
smooth nylon lining.
The first thing I noticed in using this case is the leather strap
I’ll let the resident "lefty", (JS), comment as to whether it was a problem
for her. (Note from Julie: This case wasn’t a problem for me
because I held the case in my right hand and used my thumb to hold the strap out of the
|As with many of the cases that were designed primarily for the PalmPilot, |
this case also presents a slight problem with removing the stylus if you use it with a
Palm III. The Palm III stylus is in the back and harder to get to. But as I have stated in

The Targus case is designed to hold both the PalmPilot. The PDA fits snugly into the
yoke without any strap to hold it in place. But it won’t fall out. I tried to dislodge my
PalmPilot by vigorously shaking it and it did not move. Also, the cutouts are well placed,
including the cutout in the bottom that gives access for HotSyncing with either the
HotSync cable, or The Bridge.
When closed, this case offers excellent protection to the entire PalmPilot. The outside
is padded quite well, and as I stated above, the inside of the case has a nylon lining
with the Targus logo on it. Also on the cover of the case are two slots for holding
business or credit cards.
This is a fine case. It’s easy to open and close, and it offers good protection for the
PalmPilot. And I really like the battery holders. But, and I’ve always wanted to say
this Batteries Not Included.
2 battery holders.
Strap may get in the way for right-handed users.
