ZDNet is reporting that PalmOne is shutting down its Palm.net wireless service (which we reviewed in February 1999.)

PalmOne will shut down operation of its wireless service, Palm.Net, by the end of the month. The Milpitas, Calif.-based handheld maker posted a statement on its Web site at the end of July to say features such as Palm.Net e-mail and MyPalm mobile portal and “Web clipping” service won’t be available after Aug. 31.
There has been a gradual decline in the number of users of the Palm.Net service over the last couple years, and the current total is about 42,000, said David Westendorf, senior director and general manager of Palm.Net.
Next-generation cellular networks have proved to offer better performance and more features than the data-only Mobitex network on which the Palm.Net service is based, Westendorf said.
