Visor Pro

Sat Sep 15, 2001 - 4:59 PM EDT - By James Hromadka

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.

Conclusion

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.
