Update: PDA Live has additional photos of the Edge.
The brochure contains the following information:
No mention of a smaller Springboard replacement
The removable expansion holder, which is included, is refereed to as a "Detachable Springboard slot"
An LED in the power button indicates charging status
The same LED can blink when an alarm goes off (slient alarm)
Weighs 4.8 ozs
Dimensions are 4.7 inches x 3.1 inches x .43 inches
Lithium-ion battery, which lasts up to 4 weeks on a single charge
Futurisitic looking cradle - the Visor Edge appears to be "hovering" above it when connected
33Mhz Motorola VZ processor, 8MB of memory
Monochrome LCD with 4-bit grayscale
Body in three colors: Red, Blue, and Metallic silver.
A new Fast Lookup feature in the Address book

According to PalmInfoCenter, the brochure says Handspring is targeting this device at the "customer who craves cutting edge design and likes to show it off", and also towards people with a mobile lifestyle who value a small form factor but who still want expansion capabilities.
PalmInfoCenter also reports that the Visor Edge will be available in retail channels (in addition to Handspring's online store) as early as Monday.
As James noted last week, Handspring has also registered the domains visorsnap.com and visortwist.com. At that time we speculated that the "Visor Snap could be an external Springboard slot that connects to the Edge when you need to connect a module."
However, if the removable expansion holder is indeed labeled as a "Detachable Springboard slot," then what is the Visor Snap?
Also, while James joked that "the Visor Twist could be the next dance craze that sweeps across the nation", VisorCentral reader emeyer offers a more exciting idea:
"I think the Twist in VisorTwist refers to SuperTwist LCD technology So maybe we will see a color unit with the VisorEdge form factor. "
