Early in July 2001, Hagiwara Sys-Com will place on the market the "Beat Plus" Springboard™ module for the Handspring Visor. The product uses a Yamaha FM & PCM sound chip; compatible software, with this module inserted into the springboard slot of a Visor, can produce powerful sound through it. An alarm clock application and two shooting games - " Zap! 2000 " and " Zap! 2016 " - will be included in the module packege as examples of compatible software. The API of the sound device will be disclosed for developers as a way of promoting the development of applications which support the module.I also received an email from Astraware that Zap!2000/2016 will indeed come with the module. The game will be the fully registered version when the Beat Plus is inserted. This will be a special version of the game that has 8-bit .wav effects and some multi-channel MIDI music that replaces the beeps from the original game.
