VisorCentral Awards 2000 Introduction In
1999, word of a new handheld from the makers of the PalmPilot started filtering
out, and it was called the Handspring Visor. Now, a year after the
Visor's arrival on the scene, it, like the original PalmPilot, has changed the face of the PDA market; now it's important to have a handheld that is both expandable and affordable. Major companies such as Palm and Sony will be releasing handhelds with some sort of expansion slot that allows more customization than memory alone, thanks in part to the example set by the Visor.
After setting the trend for expansion, the Visor also became an innovator by stirring developers into offering a wide variety of products designed to facilitate using the
Visor and increase a user's productivity. In order to keep track
of these innovations, this year, on the anniversary of the Handspring Visor's arrival in the handheld market, VisorCentral will select the most useful and innovative products released.
The VisorCentral Awards cover everything from carrying cases to styli, and are, as always, part of our attempt
to help our readers stay informed about news, products and software that
can both help them use the Visor efficiently and enjoy it while doing so.
The awards begin on September 8, VisorCentral's birthday; every day a winner
from one of the categories below will be announced, finishing with the
VisorCentral Product of the Year Award on September 14.
Here are the categories:
There will be a winner and and an Honorable Mention for the second place
product in each category. This year's awards come at an exciting
time in the Handspring world. Springboard modules that many users
have been waiting patiently for are beginning to come out, and it seems
that soon, people won't ask which Springboard module you own -- they'll
ask you how many!
So let's begin the 2000 VisorCentral Awards!
