    So, is the palm screen plastic, or plexyglass or something? cause it feels like that to me. I am asking because my visor screen just cracked, it seems many ppl have had problems with loose screens, cracked screens etc.

    So are palm screans better for preventing this? Howabout the new sony? - which seems like i would really like to get.

    the screen of the M100/M105 is plastic indeed. I don't know about the other models...

    How about the edge (and where's the information)?

    This is from the rumor mill.

    Palm uses a synthetic composite (plastic) material for their screens. Handspring uses Glass. This is why a IIIxe is far less likely to crack its screen than a Visor Deluxe. That's why I ALWAYS keep my VDX in its leather case with the snap cover! My guess is that the Edge uses the same screen, but I can NOT be sure about that.


    Also, from what I heard, the M105-M100 screens are pretty durable. I have not seen any on the Palm GraveYard.

    But using glass is not very clever, is it?
    Palm's composite material is cheaper and more durable. Does glass have any advantages?

    Is the VDx screen really made of glass? The screen feels soft compared to the Palm Vx/VII.

    My Visor Deluxe had minor scratches on it after 2 years and no special care. I tried the olive oil on it, worked fine.

    My Prism, day 1, someone???, 'touched' the screen with a real pen. Ouch, permanent pit. Not bad, but always there.

    I prefer the plastic, but who asks me?

    It is harder (but breaks easier) so the screen feels more solid, that is the only advantage of glass I can think of...

    Plastic makes more sense...

    Come to think of it, glass maybe is more transparant...

    If I remember correctly, clear plastics can permanently fog under certain conditions. Glass only fogs temporarily.
    Thoguh, the conditions that permit fogging might also damage the delicate interior electronics.
    I'm guessing a bit, as (for once) I'm too lazy to go look it up.

    What you are feeling *IS NOT* the glass, it is the digitizer thingy over it. That IS plastic. Beneath it is the Screen.

    I think glass is more conductive.

    ...to electricity. Glass would allow for slightly better recognition of stylus input. Where's bradhaak when you need him? I'll see what I can find.

    Subjective, but the screen on the m100 seemed to have terrible contrast. could that be a result of the plastic?
  19.    #19  
    Well, the m100 seems fine to me, my girlfriend got it, and since my visor is broken its the only one i see play around with, i cant get any work/ schedualling done since its not mine, but i feel like i've lost a limb without my visor =)

    Be it the screen or digitizer that im feeling im starting to like the plasticy feel as opposed to the stiff glass feel...

    anyone have info on the color clie screen, how does it feel?

    I just got a Clie N710c yesterday. To me it has a plasticy feel to it. The screen also feel like it has a very slight grit to it(M505 had the same feel as well). It could be because of the the stylus that came with it, because when I use my Prim's stylus on the Clie, It feels much smoother on it.

    BTW the screen is awesome.
