I've left out of this list many links to commercial products (PalmPilot software, desktop PIM synchronization software, accessories, etc), as this list is long enough already. See the Web pages given below for links to most of these.
Quick jump to: Web Sites | Newsgroups | Mailing Lists | IRC
Palm, Inc's home page. On it you can find product info, news releases, developer info (including source code and PDF copies of the developers' documentation), sample applications, system updates, demos, support info, and much, much more.
Handspring, makers of the Visor, another PalmOS device. Handspring was founded by Jeff Hawkins and Donna Dubinski, original founders of Palm Computing and creators of the original Pilot. Links to additional Visor news and reviews can be found on VisorCentral, http://www.visorcentral.com/.
Home of the Calvin's PGHQ FAQ (Frequently Asked Questions).
The Gadgeteer. Here you can find reviews of Palm devices, accessories, software and hardware add-ons, as well as reviews of non-Palm PDAs and palmtops (not that you'd be interested in any of those...).
Yahoo!'s lists of Palm sites.
PalmPilot Webring (linked list of Palm websites)
PalmGear H.Q.; a large (maybe the largest) archive of PalmOS software, plus links to news items and commercial accessories.
TUCOW's PalmOS software archive.
Home of Unix software for PalmPilot, including pilot-link (data transfer between Unix & PalmPilot), xcopilot (X window version of CoPilot, the PalmPilot simulator), gcc for PalmOS, telnet and ssh for PalmPilot, and more!
PilotManager, a set of tools for HotSync'ing your PalmPilot to Unix (primarily Solaris). Includes conduits for backing up your PalmPilot, installing applications, and sync'ing with the CDE/Sun OpenWindows Calendar Manager.
A compilation of PalmPilot software by Arizona Macintosh Users Group; the archive is also available on CD-ROM.
The MemoWareHouse; not software, but rather lists and tables of information to be imported into the PalmPilot's MemoPad or used with Doc.
Steve Simmon's great web site containing images of various PalmPilot components (look at the innards of a PalmPilot w/o dissecting your own!), instructions on do-it-yourself RAM upgrades, etc.
PDF spec sheets and manuals from Motorola for the MC68328 DragonBall Microprocessor used in the PalmPilot.
More good stuff on PalmPilot hardware, with lots of photos.
PalmOS Programming FAQ; information on how to get started with programming for the PalmPilot.
RoadCoders, links to various PalmOS programming resources.
Information and pointers on how to program your PalmPilot w/o using the "official" PalmPilot SDK (Software Developer's Kit); primarily Windows oriented, but much carries over to Unix developer tools.
Metrowerks's (creators of the PalmPilot SDK) home page for CodeWarrior for Palm Computing Platform, the official, Mac and Windows based development environment for the PalmPilot. CodeWarrior almost makes programming on under MacOS or Microsoft Windows bearable... :)
A general PalmPilot page, but scroll down towards the bottom, and you'll find a good list of Pilot development resources available on the Internet.
Handheld Systems Journal; bimonthly magazine for PDA developers. It is no longer being published, as of January 1999, but all previously published issues are archived here. Many articles deal with PalmOS development.
Publishers of The Piloteer, an electronic magazine for the PalmPilot. A sample issue is available at this link.
Discussion about everyone's favorite palmtop.
General PDA discussion, not restricted to just the PalmPilot
more PDA discussion
PalmPilot specific discussion; not available on all news servers
Discussion of PalmPilot programming; subgroups focus discussion on indicated tool: gcc (GNU C compiler), Jump (Java), Pila (Pilot Assembler), and CodeWarrior.
PalmPilot mailing list; very noisy and voluminous (you'll want to filter this group), but most new Pilot info/rumors/announcements appear here first. Digest form is also available, and a new pilot-announce list will soon be created. Instructions on how to subscribe to the list are available at http://www.ultraviolet.org/pilot.html; an archive of the list is available at http://www.ultraviolet.org/mail-archives/browse.php3?archive=pilot_index.
PalmPilot Unix mailing list; this is where all the programs available on the PalmPilot Unix software archive and general PalmPilot<->Unix interoperability issues are discussed. Digest form is also available. Hypermail archive of the list is available at http://www.acm.rpi.edu/~albert/pilot/
