Visor Deluxe Vs PalmVx

Fri Oct 15, 1999 - 2:54 PM EDT - By James Hromadka


When the Visor was introduced, many people felt that the only thing that it was missing was the small size of the Palm V organizer. On October 4, 1999, 3COM introduced the Palm Vx, which includes Palm OS 3.3 and 8MB of RAM. Now the big question - is the newer OS and form factor worth the additional $200.00?

To find out, we need to first compare the basic features. Below is an at-a-glance comparison between the Visor Deluxe and the Palm Vx organizers, and on the next page I will discuss the differences.
