Product Description

Important note to customers: Your Visor comes with a free USB cradle, but not all computers and operating system are USB compatible. If your computer uses Windows 95, Windows NT, or Mac OS 8.0 or below, or if your computer is not equipped with USB ports, you'll need to purchase an additional serialcradle to synchronize your computer with your new Visor. The Handspring Visor Deluxe connected organizer is all you'll need to store thousands of names, addresses, appointments, memos, to-do items, expense items, and e-mail. Based on the popular Palm OS, the Handspring Visor Deluxe is fully compatible with thousands of Palm Computing platform applications. Plus, Handspring has added features to the Palm OS like an advanced date book, calculator, world clock, and built-in floating-point math support.

The Handspring Visor Deluxe offers a fast USB connection, making synchronizing your PC or Mac simple. Exchange of information between your handheld and PC occurs with the touch of a button. HotSync technology ensures all your data is backed up and enables significantly faster synchronization with USB support than the normal serial connection. (An optional serial cradle is available.)

The Handspring Visor Deluxe with its 8 MB RAM also stores 12,000 addresses, 10 years of appointments, 6,000 to-do items, 6,000 memos, and 400 e-mail messages, plus it has plenty of room for add-on applications. This model includes support for Lotus cc:Mail, Microsoft Outlook, and Qualcomm Eudora. Software to synchronize with AOL, Lotus Notes, Netscape Communicator, and POP3 mail is sold separately.

The Handspring Visor Deluxe is fully expandable with an external expansion slot that lets you add optional software and hardware modules (called Springboard modules) in a snap. Modules like an MP3 player, pager, modem, GPS receiver, or video game can be added to make a new device.

The Handspring Visor Deluxe comes with a HotSync cradle, stylus, snap cover, leather slip case, Palm Desktop software (Windows and Mac), software link to Microsoft Outlook (Windows only), two AAA batteries, and a one-year warranty.

All in all, the Visors are wonderful -- buy one right now!

Visor comes with a good quiality stylus, it has solid feel of metal, and if you open it up, there's a little screw driver and a reset pin inside.

The Visor Deluxe is faster and has better options for a similarly priced Palm Pilot.

I've owned a graphite Visor deluxe for three months now -- it may very well be the most incredible piece of electronics I've ever owned, and that's saying a lot!
The 8MB of RAM is a gracious plenty. I've loaded mine up pretty heavily, with several e-books, a few AvantGo channels, a class manager for all of my undergrad courses, lots of appointments and contacts, and of course some games! Still, I have over 5MB free!
The Palm OS is far superior to Windows CE, and the Handspring version (OS 3.1H) has been tweaked by the wizards at Handspring. The Visor is over 50% faster than the Palm III, and 20% faster than the quickest Palm, the Vx.
On HotSync speed, the Visor again beats the Palm. The USB cradle HotSyncs *very* quickly.
And, you can't beat the price! For $250, you get more RAM, faster processing, and quicker syncing than the Palm! Plus, you get the expandability of the Springboard slot. Although there aren't a lot of modules out right now, there are quite a few in development. (Personally, I only have the 8MB backup module, which is great -- I'm eagerly waiting for the InnoGear SixPak.)
My only complaint was that my Visor Deluxe came with a plastic stylus that was way too chintzy to use, and I purchased an upgraded metal stylus, which is great. Now, however, I hear that all Visors are shipping with metal styli. I guess sometimes the early birds don't always get the worms -- or the good styli.
I also recommend that all Visor owners use a screen protector -- WriteRights are available at CompUSA, or you can make your own out of clear laminate. The screens do scratch fairly easily, and the protectors are so cheap and easy to install, it's well worth it. Plus, I find the plastic laminate easier to write on than the bare Visor screen -- feels more like paper.
All in all, the Visors are wonderful -- buy one right now! You won't be sorry!

I got my Visor Deluxe last month and I love it.
If you are considering buying a Visor Deluxe, I'm sure you are deciding between this Visor and PalmIIIxe, because they have similar feature, spac, and they both have the same price.
AT the same time I bought my Visor, my roommate bought a PalmIIIxe (and he also loves his Palm very much). So i'll give you the differences between these 2 PDAs, and let you decide which one you like better.
I'll start with How Visor is better.
-Visor has expansion module, which means alot, you can add many many feature afterward, you can make your Visor am MP3 player too! And you can also easily add more memory to your Visor, while for PalmIIIxe, you can only add 2MB flashcard.
-Visor is a bit lighter than PalmIIIxe (5.4oz Vs 6.0 Oz, not a lot of difference though)
-When you buy a leather case for your Visor, you dont have to stick a valcro to the back of your PDA like you have to for Palm. (Palm need a Valcro to hold it to the case, while for Visor, there's a plastic holder attach to the back of the leather case, so you can jsut put your Visor securely in there)
-Visor comes with a fast USB cradle while Palm comes with slow serial cradle, so if you buy palm and want a fast synconizing, you'll need to buy a USB cradle separatly for about ($).
-Visor comes with a good quiality stylus, it has solid feel of metal, and if you open it up, there's a little screw driver and a reset pin inside. Palm comes with a piece of plactic stylus, my roomate had to buy a new stylus for about ($)
-And another important nice thing about Visor is, you have 4 cool colors to choose from (5 colors if you include this boring graphite color) If you are getting Visor as a gift to a college students or someone young, they'll love the colors.

Recently, I've been thinking about getting something to help me keep track of all the names, telephone numbers, email addresses of all of my personal and business contacts. I also needed something to help me keep track of important dates and events. (Basically, I needed something to organize my life.) When I took a quick look at the market, I realized that there are many many available choices. In fact, there were so many that I was initially confused by all the options.
I ended up asking my friends for advice and here's what they told me (not verbatim): Palm Pilots ROCK! Don't even think about buying one of those pocket PCs because they eat up batteries like crazy.
After that helpful discussion, I decided to get a Palm Vx. It looked pretty and had enough memory for anything I wanted to do. So, I drifted over to Amazon.com and started adding a Palm Vx to my shopping cart when I noticed that there was an alternative to Palm Pilots.
Handspring. They're made by the people who developed Palm Pilots and they're based on the Palm III series. The reason why I stopped myself from buying the Palm Vx and took the time to look at Handspring was because of the rave reviews they've been getting.
In short, the Handspring Visor Deluxe is faster and has the same amount of memory as a Palm Vx (8 MB). It is also about $150 cheaper. In comparison to a Palm V, the Handspring Visor Deluxe is faster and has 4 times more memory for the same price. Since the Visor uses a tweaked version of the Palm OS, it is still compatible with all those programs you want on a Palm Pilot. What really changed my mind and moved me to buy the Visor Deluxe instead of a Palm Vx was the expansion port for Springboard modules.
What's a Springboard module?
