The law firm of Sheller, Ludwig & Badey has filed suit against Palm Inc. in connection with the Palm m130 PDA. As was
recently reported on MacCentral, Palm admitted that the m130 is incapable of displaying as many colors as the company initially advertised.
Sheller, Ludwig & Badey (SL&B) filed the suit on behalf of consumers who bought the m130. The suit was filed on August 22, 2002 in the Superior Court of the State of California, County of Santa Clara. The suit names Palm specifically as the defendant, regardless of where consumers purchased the m130.
Consistent with Palm’s admission, SL&B alleges that the m130 was promoted as having support for more than 65,000 colors, when, in fact, the system is only capable of displaying less than 59,000 colors.
Consumers affected by the issue are encouraged by SL& B to fill out a
questionnaire form on its Web site; by doing so, said the company, consumers will assist them with their litigation and will be apprised of “material developments.”
