    Will I buy a device with a low OS that's not flashable. My Vdx works but I always hold out on buying stuff for it because of the OS incampatibility. I probably won't buy a new PDA until this summer...but when I do its either a Palm OS5 Visor or maybe I will look at another company...

    I don't think that's right that Handspring refuses to use FlashROM. So I will be faithful and wait for a new Visor. If no new Visor comes out I think it will be safe to assume its been abandoned by Handpsring...

    I do not think that Handspring's No FlashROM policy will change. They are doing pretty well even though they are the only PALM OS device manufacturer with this policy. I change my PDA just about every year so the lack of FlashROM is not a big deal to me.

    I have had a handspring device since they first came out, I never ran into a problem where I wanted to get something for it and didn't get it because the os wasn't upgradable.

    Other than a couple of springboards that couldn't\wouldn't work with the deluxes what can't you run?

    If you want to upgrade to OS5, that's supposed to be run off a ARM processor anyway - what good would a flashable ROM do then?

    Specifically I'm interested in using PiDirect on my Visor. Unlike most people I don't have the luxury of being able to buy a new PDA every year. Its not about wanting OS5 its about wanting to run more proggies.
