Readers want a serial cable

Fri Jan 21, 2000 - 1:52 PM EST - By James Hromadka

Many readers of VisorCentral have commented that they wish Handspring or another company would make a travel serial cable, similar to the USB cable that is currently offered. We did a poll to find out if there was demand. Below are the results:

Yes 68.75 % (154)
No 31.25 % (70)
Total votes: 224

It seems that many people want to have a serial cable. There are a lot of business users that use Windows NT on their laptops and don't want to lug around their serial cradle when they travel. There are also accessories such as GPS and external modems that require a serial cable.

Hopefully Handspring or another company will make a serial cable.
