Handspring Introduces Pro and Neo Visors -- Handspring today released two new Visor devices, adding speed and more memory to the Palm OS-based handhelds. The entry-level Visor Neo, priced at $200, features 8 MB of memory and is now 50 percent faster than the Visor Deluxe, thanks to its 33 MHz Dragonball VZ processor. The Visor Pro, at $300, uses the same processor but includes 16 MB of memory, the most built-in RAM of any current Palm device, and is powered by an internal rechargeable battery. Both devices feature grayscale screens, Springboard expansion slots, and the same form factor as the Visor Deluxe, albeit in different colors: the Pro is silver, while the Neo comes in translucent red, blue, and "smoke." Both Visors qualify for Handspring's current promotion that offers a free VisorPhone Springboard module with any Handspring Visor and service activation.

Beware Country-Specific iTunes Stores
If you buy an iPhone, iPod touch, or iPad, and you happen to be a user of the iTunes Store in more than one country, take note which country's store you're viewing in iTunes when you plug in the device for the first time. This will be the country the device will register with, and you will be forever barred from purchasing or even updating free apps from anywhere else. The only way out is to delete everything on the device and do a full restore.
