Other PDAs?

Did you already have a Palm PDA when you won the Visor Deluxe?

"I do own another PDA. I’ve been using a Palm IIIx for the last 5 or 6 months. Right now I’m using the Visor, although I am keeping my IIIx synced for the time being."

Chris BakerWhat is your favorite thing about your Visor Deluxe, except the fact that you’re one of the few who actually has one?

"Well, I do have to admit that it is pretty cool to be fortunate enough to be one of the few that have one in advance, but that will change soon with the announcement of the first wave of Visors shipping. Probably the coolest thing about the Visor Deluxe is the 8MB of RAM. I have a Palm IIIx, and I was always worrying about having enough space (I used it for most everything and averaged < 350k free at all times)."

What is your least favorite thing about the Visor?

"My least favorite thing is the stylus. It is pretty obvious that Handspring put in a tremendous amount of effort to make a very high quality product (easily as high quality a unit as the Palms). It is just a shame that such a poorly crafted, lightweight plastic stylus was included. The other gripe I have is that you cannot properly use the USB cradle on PCs with Win95B. Handspring’s drivers require Win98. This is not a problem for me at home, but I also need to sync my Visor in the office. Now I will have to install a clean copy of 98 on my office PC."

So, for those of us who haven’t gotten a Visor yet, will it be worth the wait?

"It will be well worth the wait for all. Especially those upgrading from older Palm models."
