Excerpt: When anyone mentions Personal Digital Assistants (PDAs), many people think of Palm or Palm Pilots. PDAs used to be the expensive toys of the corporate elite, but during the last couple of years the PDA market has been reaching into the mainstream. New contenders have surfaced in Sony, Handspring, and the PocketPC based handhelds. Handspring in particular has brought quality PDAs to the masses.
Excerpt: In conjunction with the launch of its first colour device, the Visor Prism (see Reviews Vol 16 No 23, p41), Handspring released a souped-up version of its monochrome handheld device which goes by the name of the Visor Platinum. The Platinum is similar in most respects to the Visor Deluxe, the handheld that Handspring used to challenge Palm Computing's PDA crown.
