Who would have guessed that last year’s Palm equivalent to the mini-van – the Zire, would morph into this year’s two door sport coupe? Everything pointed to the Zire remaining Palm’s bargain PDA. But wow, things sure have changed. Now, the Zire 71 (who comes up with these model numbers anyway?) is poised to become Palm’s multimedia …
