Handspring Visor Platinum
27 April 2001
Summary: Overall, this is a good basic PDA (no color, no music, no photo). I bought to use to remind me of meetings, birthdays, etc. The task list is ok one you get used to the organization. Very useful PDA for work.
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
Excerpt: So one day I lost my palm pilot and someone told me to buy a Visor. So I looked on the website www.handspring.com and thought for a long time on which one to get. Eventually it was between the cheapest one and the platinum and I thought they looked very similar.
Pros: well protected, the pen never falls out, you can upgrade it .
Cons: it doesnt feel as solid as the palm, feels a bit more plasticy

Excerpt: *** Update 2 *** ----------------- 9 July 2001. Just got an e-mail from Omnisky today, saying that they do not need any more 'beta testers' - so anybody else wanting to sign up will have to wait for the full product launch.
Pros: internet and email on the move, helps you to plan your life, check your e - mail on the train/the beach/wherever
Cons: not cheap, you can only read the omnisky instruction manual on your desktop PC
Excerpt: If you're not one of the millions of people who've thrown away their diary in favour of a PDA yet, then the Handspring Visor Platinum could well be worth a look. At around £249, it's not the cheapest PDA on the market (Handspring themselves produces models starting at £100) but it still represents...
Summary: Maintenant que c’est un « vieux machin » je vais oser en parler. A la rentrée 2001 j’ai été confrontée à de gros problèmes d’organisation car j’ai dû gérer à la fois mes emplois du temps professionnel et personnels qui, par coïncidence, se sont trouvés être très chargés en même temps (avec de...
Summary: Je n'étais pas un adepte du PDA ! Un gadget, quoi ! Et puis il m'a été offert un Visor Platinum... Aujourd'hui je m'en sers tout le temps !! Avec les applications de base fournies, vous pouvez répertorier vos données, organiser vos RdV, prendre des notes, faire des aides mémoires, etc...
Pros: PalmOS peu gourmand en mémoire, solide, synchronisation par port USB, port d'extensions
