New Handspring Visors Offer Color, Speed
Handspring today announced two new Palm-compatible models in its Visor handheld line. The $449 Visor Prism offers a 16-bit color (65,536 colors, compared to Palm’s Palm IIIc, which has 8-bit color) display in a cobalt blue case, and the $299 Visor Platinum sports a new metallic silver case. Both handhelds use Motorola’s DragonBall VZ 33 MHz processor for what Handspring says is the best performance available in a Palm OS handheld. Each comes with 8 MB of memory. The new handhelds are available now from Handspring’s online store and will be available through other retailers in November.
