    Handspring, you need to push ahead!

    I'm tired of endless models with grey and green screens I CANNOT SEE IN ROOM LIGHT.

    If you don't want to give us a paper white screen or a low power color screen, for whatever reason, IMHO, prepare to sink!

    I'm not buying another swamp thing cheapo LCD green screen, not again, not like the six Visors I bought for myself and my family, not for anybody.. not for a phone which is a Visor, not for a Visor which becomes a phone. Not for nothing. I need my eyesight a lot more than you need your money! Wake up and smell the contrast!!

    That's number one. (You always hurt the ones you love.)

    Number Two: Your case designs put me to sleep. BUILD US A CASE WHICH STANDS ON A TABLETOP for handsfree reading and can also clip solidly to my belt.

    INNOVATE OR DIE!

    Or, you can read my article on how I walked the talk and built one from existing products, for InSIGHT magazine next month!

    GET MOVING!

    Best, as always

    Wouldn't it be better to email feedback@handspring.com with your rant? If you don't like monochrome, why don't you get color? It seems to me in the PDA world there is either color monochrome..no in between.

    I assume Handspring monitors this board, since it is an excellent Visor resource.

    For manyt reasons, the industry today is *coasting* and there is little movement or innovation in everything from screens to cases.

    I expect better form companies like Handspring and Apple, whose iPod is overpriced with very few functions. I am simply not certain how they expect to stay alive. I for one will not purchase either item, because my devices need to do many different things.

    There is no in-between in screens, as you say, and that too annoys. What's wrong with a paper-white LCD and black letters? For thos eof us over 40, the ability to see these in ordinary room illumination should NOT be a stretch.

    I suspect that the only way to implement what you describe would be to dumb-down a color LCD, and that modification would make it cost more than color.
