Palm OS-compatible PDA maker
Handspring Inc. today announced that it is once again offering its Visor Platinum PDA, at least for a limited time. The Visor Platinum costs US$169 and comes in a silver casing.
Handspring Vice President of Product Marketing Joe Sipher explained that the Visor Platinum was one of the company’s most successful products. “We sold out of Visor Platinum during the holidays and since then we’ve had strong interest from our customers in bringing the product back. We are re-releasing the product for a limited time to meet this demand,” said Sipher.
Like Handspring’s other PDAs, the Visor Platinum sports a Springboard expansion slot which can be used to add additional capabilities not built-in to the PDA, such as GPS, cell phone, added memory expansion and many other functions. The Visor Platinum ships with a USB-based cradle and is compatible with Mac OS and Windows computers, and features compatibility with Palm OS-compatible software.
The Visor Platinum features Motorola’s DragonBall VZ 33MHz processor and comes equipped with 8MB RAM. The system uses a monochrome display capable of supporting 4-bit greyscale images, and runs on two AAA batteries.
