Poll Preview: Palm Before the Storm -- Handheld computers used to belong only to the excessively organized or excessively geeky (or odd combinations of both). Now, every third person at a convention is trying to beam you his business card. With the popularity of Palm OS-based devices on a continual climb, we want to know: If you've been thinking about buying a Palm OS-based handheld device, which model do you find most appealing? Choose from the monochrome Palm III family (Palm IIIx, IIIxe, or IIIe), the color Palm IIIc, the slim Palm V or Vx, the wireless Palm VII, Handspring's Visor or Visor Deluxe, or the Technology Resource Group's TRGPro. Read on for more details about the new Handspring Visors and register your vote on our home page! [JLC]
