Summary: My Handspring is an important part of my day to day data tracking. The Hnddspring makes that easy and convenient, can't say enough good about it. Even though this unit is not the latest and greatest, it covers my needs and performs with style.
Though out-of-date, the Handspring still performs well and serves a purpose

Summary: Granted, this is obsolete technology now but this product has always been a pleasing one for me. I am on my second Handspring now and, for what I require, it works wonderfully. The device makes an excellent ebook reader when dealing with text-only files and has enough capacity to allow you to carry several books around with you at any given time.
Summary: Helps keep track of all you can. No more little black books. Small enough to take anywhere fitting comfortably in your hands. Can purchase expandable memory also or game cartridges. I love it.
Summary: I use this handspring Platinum to help me control my diabetes. I love it. it has helped my more than any other diabetic product out there. It also helps me with weight control and keeping track of everything I eat. I would not want to live with out it.
Summary: Palm is a wonderful item there are many apps still out there for it and this was bought for a teen to keep track of life points in playing magic and yughio. He also needed a calculator which the functions on this are great. But we have found that palm no longer supports this model and if you have a computer with vista or higher you can not sync it. Which means it loses alot of the resons a person would buy this product.
Summary: Looks and works like it is brand new. No marks at all on the unit that I could fine. Also came with a leather carrying case that was not listed that made the deal even better. I still use this device to keep track of passwords for my work.
Summary: Well, it's not cutting edge. But I have used one for years and had to replace it because it got damaged. Easy, intuitive, runs Palm OS and software, plus the Springboard module allows for a lot of plug-n-play modules. As long as you can live without color screen, built in phone, etc., this makes for a very useful tool.
Summary: I had one for years and it just died at the hands of my 2 year old. Otherwise I think it would have gone on for ever. I'm a little confused by the last review. This device was made by Handspring, not Palm. It takes aaa batteries and is not rechargable. The fact that it takes batteries made it perfect for me while sailing and camping. I could be away for weeks and still have everything I wanted, tide tables, star charts, and some entertainment.
Summary: This palm was made several years ago, doesn't have a color screen, doesn't have wireless, but it is extremely durable and has good battery life. It will run for almost a month without needing recharged, even after 5 years of use on the original battery.
Summary: The visor platinum has been a user friendly, reliable entre into the world of PDAs. However, some of the spreadsheet applications I use tend to expose how slow the chip is. I hope to see a PDA/phone combination with a 33mHz chip that retains its backup port, AND is graffiti friendly.
Pros: annoying lcd dropouts on the left side of the screen
Cons: annoying lcd dropouts on the left side of the screen
