Thin Is In
I bought the edge over the other visors because of the form factor. My old PDA was a Xircom REX, but the screen broke. With the anodized aluminum case on the Edge I don't have to worry about that one anymore. Also, I love the backpack addon for the Visor so if I want my sprinboard devices I can have those too.. woohooo! Been using the Edge for 3-months and couldn't be happier. I can carry it anywhere.. and thats what I need a PDA for :)

Totally Awesome
Just bought an ibook; got a $100 of the Edge, which is now selling for $299! That makes it $199; what a deal!

It worth to upgrade from VDX
This Edge look and feel more substantial than in any photo. If you have VDX and would like to try Visorphone, I would recommend it. Metal case, metal button, and metal stylus do make your PDA a more durable piece of mind. I still yet have to try it out for a longer period to conclude. So far I am still satified. At $299 after $100 instant rebate from my pervious VDX, plus $99 for VisorPhone (note: tax on $499 for VP) and I sold my VDX at $150. This I call bargain, and will eagerly try it again with Handspring for color version

Just what I needed in a Visor!
I traded my VDx after 15 months of constant use--the Edge gives me exactly what I wanted: familiar operation but with a THIN profile and a hard flip cover. This really makes it convenient to carry, yet offers much of the protection of the leather case.

Solid case and performance
I really admire this organizer after two months of use. It just feels and works better than my past two Palm devices. I carry my Edge in my pocket and the metal frame assures that I won't damage the unit when stressed. I added a GlobalAccess 56k modem and have found it very impressive when using the Blazer browser. This is a great combination that I would recommend to everyone.

Despite the springboard sleeve, I can't help but like the durability and size of the Edge.

Perfect for Pockets
Highly recommended for those who want to carry it in their pocket and not look like a dweeb. I've had mine for a month with no problems. Constant Springboard users probably won't like the "sled," but the only module I use is the Backup module, which comes right off after backup and goes back into a safe place.

Yum. Pretty
Without a doubt, this is the prettiest PalmOS handheld yet. I just wish the Springboard sled was more elegant. Luckily, being detachable, we can look forward to sexier sleds.

The Edge has major hardware problems
I love the form factor, and I would have happily gotten rid of my Prism for it, but I had so many hard resets and other hardware problems (buttons not working, etc) in the first 24 hours that I couldn't stand it.

Great Design, Could use a left hand rail for slim cases like the Palm V
Great machine, nice design, and very easy to obtain and work with.Replaced my Palm III circa 1998. Much faster and the screen is great.Having trouble finding a slim case just to carry business cards. It either needs a left hand rail like the Palm V or a new flip cover that could hold cards on the outside.
