Founded by the original creators of the Palm computer, Dubinsky and Jeff Hawkins, Handspring is expected to sell a PalmOS based computer that is cheaper, faster, and more expandable than other PalmOS models currently shipping.
Visor has a unique feature you won't find on any current Palm computer yet modularity. Springboard plug-n-play hardware add-ons can expand Visors functionalities almost endlessly.
Extra memory, backup units, games, modems, mp3 players, pagers, and cell-phones are just some of the Springboards that will be available.
Only one module can be used at a time, since it is fitted into the Springboard slot at the top of the Visor.
The Visor will come in several models, starting at $149 (without cradle) up to $249 for a Visor Deluxe (bundled with USB cradle, multiple color case, leather case).
All Visor models have a backlight and a microphone built in. It measures 4.8" x 3.0" x 0.7" .
Currently, the least expensive Palm III computer goes for around $160.
