    Just a question for those people out there...

    What boxes do you like? I mean...PDA Boxes. Since Handspring's change from the colorful boxes to the ugly white boxes...i want to know what you people think...

    Boxes are kinda like clothes. The interesting stuff is underneath.
    It's gotta be weather balloons. It's always weather balloons. Big, fiery, exploding weather balloons.

    A box is a box is a box. Would you rather have a company spend a lot of money on four color printing or on R&D or marketing? Especially a company that doesn't have all that much money on hand.

    I liked the box my Treo 180 came in. It was small. It had everything it needed. Very different from the mammoth my Palm IIIx came in.

    Undamaged upon arrival when shipped or when purchased, the rest is immaterial to me.

    I like my Treo 90 box...I liked it so much I put it in my bookshelf for EVERYONE to see!!! The other box I have is the box from my Handspring custom case for my Neo (Sold both, kept the box). It's very clean cut with the Handspring logo.

    P.S. That has me wondering, my first Neo had a Handspring logo window stickie and sticker but the my second Neo (returned the first when the screen cracked) and my Treo didn't come with those...did anyone else get them?
    Goodbye my lovely Treo

    I generally save the boxes for my computer stuff, so I just want them to look different enough that I can tell them apart at a glance.

    I hate anything that comes with styrofoam.

    I also hate styroform cups and plates if you're asking ;p

    I am attempting to have a complete collection of Handspring Boxes - I myself like the new ones better than the old. I currently have a Treo 180, a Visor Platinum, a Visor Prism and a Visor Deluxe Graphite box. I built a shelf for it in my lab.. What do you say.. I' m a geek!

    Somebody should post pictures of all the older Visor boxes...I myself have only seen the boxes for the Neo and the Treo 90 (Oh and the Box for the Canadian Treo 180 which matches Rogers AT&T's colour scheme).

    I don't know exactly what it's called. it's not foam, it's not styrofoam, it's somewhat fiberous, always white that I've seen, feels a little greasy but isn't. I usually see it packed around electronics instead of styrofoam.

    Oh! I think I get what you mean!
    Nah. That's not so bad.
    I hate the non-fiberous one more! Those that can break off into tinier pieces and bits...
