Summary: Custom-fit to the slim Visor Edge, this cradle does it all. USB HotSync is fast and the drivers are built into Palm Desktop. A separate AC power supply plugs into a wall socket and the cradle's USB connector for recharging the PDA on the cradle.
Summary: 1) The Visor doesn't even fit in the cradle. 2) It isn't even a full cradle. There's no "back support," so even if you could get it to fit, it would fall over and fall out. 3) My computer didn't even recognize it as a USB device.
Excerpt: Yes, it's another matt_fantastic review of an old item. I hope you''re all picking up some great bargains on Ebay... Here are a few hardware specs for th Handspring Visor Edge PDA, check the "Product Information" tab for lots of detailed specifications.
Pros: Looks great, super slim
Cons: A lillte old now, B/W only, no Bluetooth / WiFi
Excerpt: When I first bought this PDA I thought i could only put afew games on, and use afew tools, but I was *amazed* at how much this could actually do. Here are some features that you wouldnt expect it to be able to do: Crack Password Hashes (Unix/NT/Cisco) Play 3d Car games Upgrade the monophonic speaker...
Pros: Very slim, stylish and light, supported by * alot * of palm software, can update speeker to polyphonic with software
Excerpt: this pda is a few years old now, and wont compare very well with more recent models. the specs are as follows (taken from the datasheet) Size: 4.7"x 3.1"x 0.44" (11.9 cm x 7.9 cm x 1.1 cm) Weight: 4.8 oz.
Excerpt: The Visor Edge is probably the best of the classic PalmOS machines. OS 3.5H2 isn't exactly leading Edge (*cough*), but if you want a Palm for the sake of the device itself, you're in for a treat. The case is metal, and the flip cover encloses the screen, so hardly any pocket goop gets in there.
Pros: Build quality is stunning . Fast and reliable .
Excerpt: Ok, so the world of handhelds is taking off and we all need one in the modern business world to jot down ideas, but were you aware that there are alternatives out there to the world famous Palm series? Palm Series, made by Palm (visit www.palm.com), are market leaders. With that comes a high price.
Excerpt: The Edge is Handspring's most recent addition to it's Visor range. The machine is obviously built to compete with Palm's slimline Vx. I can't deny that it is a beautiful object, the slimmest PalmOS device currently available. Handspring seem to have shot themselves in the foot here.
Pros: Gorgeous looks and feel, lovely cradle, USB sync
Cons: Non - upgradeable OS, nasty clip - on Springboard adapter
Excerpt: Déjà très présent au niveau du milieu de gamme des PDA, HandSpring s'est enfin mis à niveau avec le Palm Vx et le Palm m500 avec ce nouveau Visor Edge. Non content de concurrencer directement Palm, HandSpring s'est même permis de rajouter quelques petits plus comme cela avait déjà été fait pour le...
