Wonderful device

  • 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.

Ancient device, but very durable!

evipere, Ebay

  • 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.

Handspring Visor Platinum

Consumer Democracy
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.
  • Pros: Stylus is very basic.
  • Cons: Stylus is very basic.

Handspring Visor Platinum

Consumer Democracy
7 March 2001
  • 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

I used to have a palm pilot.....

  • 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

Think carefully about this one...

  • Excerpt: This unit is basically a Visor Deluxe with a nasty paint job, a faster CPU (33MHz vs. 16MHz), and a newer operating system, PalmOS 3.5 as opposed to 3.1. Unfortunately, the machine doesn't seem anywhere near as fast in practise.
  • Pros: Springboard slot, Fast USB Sync
  • Cons: Speed, non - upgradeable OS

GoodShop, Ciao
29 April 2001
  • 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

Platinum.... worth it's weight in gold !

apowis, Ciao
12 January 2001
  • 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...
  • Pros: Expandable, good looking, large storage
  • Cons: Not cheap for a black and white PDA

  • Excerpt: A mi me da igual que la pantalla sea en monocromo o que vaya con pilas alcalinas. La agenda me la compré hace unos 8 meses y va perfectamente bien.
