The Personality Pack by Parallel Design consists of a flip-up cover that clips to the top of the Palm V/Vx and a stylus holder which plugs into either pen port to hold your pen up while the Palm sits flat on the desk. The Clip Cover clicks into the utility slot at the back of the Palm V. It has no spring and works by friction. Covers come in either black with color accents or translucent “gel” colors with a black accent. The translucent covers let you see your Palm screen without having to flip up the cover, convenient for checking to see if it’s switched on.


The cover is very light weight, about 16 grams and projects only a millimeter or two above the screen. If you like the small size and light weight of the Palm V, this cover allows you to enjoy those benefits while protecting just your screen. It did not tend to open accidentally but was sometimes fussy to open using the fingernail recesses molded into the underside of the cover. A minor flaw is the fact that once open, the cover makes it difficult to push the power button.

Available colors are Lime, Blueberry, Grape, Tangerine, Strawberry and Palm Blue. My personal favorite is the Palm Blue gel color which picks up on the color of the power button. The gel covers also show fewer streaks and smudges than the solid black.

Personality Pack US$17.99 consists of the Clip Cover US$15.99 and Stylus Holder US$2.99 which are available separately. [Bob Snow]
