I love my green-and-ice deluxe, which I got for a birthday present this year after begging. I'm holding out for the Innogear <http://www.innogear.com/
Pax for my first Springboard module, though. Of course, it wouldn't be anywhere near as cool if it didn't make extensive use of the PalmOs LessIsMore
I had the Visor Deluxe, and then upgraded to Visor Prism(color). I am very happy with my purchase. In conjunction with OmniSky
Internet service, I think they are the best available handhelds on the market. They use the PalmOs
platform, with thousands of free and low-cost applications, and a relatively low price on the hardware as well. The color display on the Prism is beautiful, too. --JoshuaBaran
Unfortunately, CDPD (which the Minstrel S-based services use) isn't anywhere near as widespread as voice cellular, meaning OmniSky
is quite useless unless you stay near large metropolitan areas.
The Visorphone is a Springboard expansion module for the HandspringVisor
that turns it into a cellphone.
Has anyone here gotten one? -- DavidCorbin
If it were cheaper, I might. Man, that thing's expensive.
And now it's cheaper. $49, but you can only get it with Voice
Stream service in my area. Not sure what other areas have available to them.
