Palm Inc. has announced the availability of a trial version of its MyPalm portal, where users can download various online services from Palm, such as email and a calender, through their PDA (personal digital assistant).

Information that can be downloaded from the beta site is specifically formatted for handheld screens, Palm said in a statement.

Users can gain access to the site via the Web from a PC, or wirelessly through the MyPalm downloadable Web Clipping application. From the site, users can access e-mail, synchronize their Palm calendars or download such things as news, business applications and shopping information.

The MyPalm portal and Web clipping application are available free of charge by clicking here.
