  • Handspring Visor Pro - Update to French Vanilla

    Oct 7, 2001 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Springboard slot, Palm OS, 16 MB of memory, older Visor accessories fit
    Cons: Bulkier than other Palm units, Springboards expensive, design same since Visor creation.

    Summary: As I write this, a good analogy popped up while reading mkaresh's 2002 Camry epinion. I couldn't help but think of Handspring's latest entry into the market as plain vanilla in the Palm OS hardware world. This isn't to say that the Visor Pro isn't ... read more

    Pros: 16MB!! expansion capabilities, freebies from Handspring web site.
    Cons: thicker than average Handspring, cover IS useless, hard to find modules at local stores

    Summary: Bought my Handspring Visor Pro in June 2002. I shopped around for about three weeks, checking prices, checking capabilities. What I was really looking for was an e-book reader, but for the price, I figured I might as well get some sort of PDA. My sister ... read more

    Pros: Huge memory, rechargeable, fast processor. GREAT price.
    Cons: More bulky than some handhelds

    Summary: My first Visor was a Platinum and I loved it. The fast Dragonball processor and 8 meg of RAM were well suited to my needs as a student. It kept all my data at my fingertips and was fun to use. I had the flexibility to use it with Outlook and coordinate ... read more

    Cons: Same old Palm Backlight, few included applications, Palm OS 3.5, no Leather Case.

    Dec 18, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: Rechargable Battery, 16 MB, Palm OS, Familiar Design
    Cons: Slightly bulkier than other models.

    Summary: The Visor Pro makes the jump to 16 MB. Due to the limitations of Add on Memory this is quite significant. If you plan on using your pda as a repository of databases or lots of raw data the bump to 16 MB will give you a little breathing room. The other ... read more

    Pros: Springboard expansion, 16MB, faster processor
    Cons: Bulky, pricey

    Summary: SUMMARY: Among Handspring devices, the Pro is a clear, though pricey, winner if you need to use the Springport expansion slot. I traded in my Sony Clie to get a Handspring because I knew I wanted to use the 802.11b card that just came out ... read more

  • Visor Pro now with 16Mb

    Oct 13, 2001 by
    Rated a Helpful Review
    Pros: 16Mb Main Memory, rechargable battery, Palm OS, Springboard modules.
    Cons: Design could be better, plastic casing, un-handy protective cover.

    Summary: This brand new device is not brand new on all it's features. The casing is a bit outdated and the system software is not the latest version either. Is this bad? I'd say no. The 3.5 version of the software is very stable and it's working perfect with ... read more
