Visor Pro Software Features » Usability
Usability The Visor Pro takes the best aspects of other monochrome Visors and
nicely packages them together in a familiar form factor. I love the
additional memory and the Fast Lookup and silent alarm. The casing
is more durable and feels almost as strong as the aluminum casing on the
Visor Edge. The hardware buttons have been slightly redesigned so that they are
not so concave, making it easier to play games on the Visor Pro. Other nice features like a see-through charcoal lid makes
the Pro very elegant looking, although it shows smudges easily. This
is the perfect Visor for enterprise users.
I hate the fact that Visor Pro is in monochrome. The handheld
future is in color. I know that Handspring needed to update its two
year old Visor line, but how about giving us a Prism Pro too? The
other thing that is hurting the Visor Pro is that it doesn't have any "new"
features. By combining features from the other Visor models, the
Visor Pro is an evolutionary product, not a revolutionary one like the
Visor Prism was.
The Visor Pro is essentially a replacement for the Visor Platinum, and
what a replacement it is. With good speed, the most memory available
today in a PalmOS device, and a rechargeable battery, the Visor Pro is
the perfect device for power users that do not need color.
