Springboard Module of the Year

Springboard module of the YearWhen one thinks of the Handspring Visor, the first feature that comes to mind is the innovative Springboard slot. The Visor has brought forth the promise of infinite expandability by using small modules that are about the size of a GameBoy cartridge but do so much more. Springboard modules have been slow to come out, but these past few weeks have fortold of great things to come. The winner of the Springboard Module of the Year not only fulfills that promise, it expands on it by going the extra mile for the user.

MiniJamWinner: MiniJam by InnoGear

When the Visor was first announced, so came the announcement of an MP3 Player from InnoGear. Through component shortages and the struggles of building a new company, InnoGear worked diligently to bring us the MiniJam, the first MP3 Springboard module to be released for the Visor. The MiniJam brings expandability to the Visor by using MulitMedia Cards (MMCs) for storage, allowing the user to carry as many or as few songs as they want. The MiniJam goes the extra mile for users by offering features such as Mac compatibility and additional applications, as well as high quality earphones and PalmOS data storage.

James: What's not to love? The MiniJam has excellent hardware buttons and includes the Plus version of MusicMatch. Do yourself a favor and get the 64 MB version.

Marcus: Innogear has finally deliverd a solid product that will only get better with time.

Honorable Mention: SoundsGood by Good Technology

This is a fantastic module that offers users a lightning fast file transfer rate and long battery life in the shape of a standard-size Springboard module. With nice extras like a waveform and a Volume wheel, the SoundsGood is a very close contender in this category.
