    I have a good history with Handspring. I have owned a Visor Pro, Visor Edge, Treo 180, 270, and now the Treo 600. I love the Treo series and the T600 is by far the best palm/phone I have ever owned (minus voice dialing!!). But I saw some one at work with a Visor Edge (gray to go with his power book) and I had to play with it. It has a crappy screen, wimpy power, half the memory, no chance for MP3s or video or audio recording, and no keyboard but I begain to miss my old one. It was the red one with a Desiel hard cover for it. It was so thin slick and metalic I felt I could drop it from the top of my building and not have to worry about it (unlike my treo 180/270s!!!).


    Am I sick? I have the best there is (and the price to prove it) yet I am drawn back to a palm that is now 1/6th the price of the Treo 600. What is it about the Visor line? They were rock solid and v simple and I would still be happy with the Edge if i could not have a Treo.
    Iím a lucky man to count on both hands

    Sorry, I bought Visor's for my nephew, so I never really knew Visor. I still have my Palm Vx and my daughter plays with it.

    When the board's discussion area went down, I went over to Visorcentral to see what was going on. The discussion board felt like tumbleweeds were blowing in the background they were so bare. There had been no posts in the last 30 days in any of the boards I checked. Then I saw the latest posts from about 60 days ago that said they didn't get the whole Treo convergence idea and about how Handspring made a big mistake getting rid of the Visor and had lost his business. Then the 2 other lone readers on the board agreed and said P1 would go under without their (3 whole persons!) business. Then they wrote about how the Visor still makes a great e-book reader. One guy was bragging about how he re-wired his Deluxe's cradle so he could re-charge it?!? Unless you want to be one of these guys, do yourself a favor, move on and forget about your Visor.

    HAHA!!! That's a really good assestment Bob! An interesting thing to note is that while those guys were still complaining about how the demise of the Visors would doom PalmOne/handspring, the Treo600 hardware forum has accumulated more posts than almost the entire visorcentral forum together!!

    Actually, I have to confess that I still use my Deluxe as a Universal TV Remote. I still think orange is wayyyy coooool.

    Don't get me wrong.. i'm not going to overstock.com and going to buy one for the amazing price of $89 (and get the silver one i always wanted not the red one that they had in stock the day i bought it from Handspring.com.. :-/ ) Though I always wished handspring would make an Edge with a color screen that would have kicked a$$
