Handspring Plastic Beltclip

Mon Aug 28, 2000 - 9:30 PM EDT - By James Hromadka

Usability

What the Handspring Beltclip loses in its nakedness it makes up for in usability.  When standing, the Visor is very easy to remove from this case.  And because it's a holster, it feels like you're drawing a gun when you remove the Visor.  Just call me Jesse James!  Slide the Visor back in, and it clicks when it is locked in place.

I had to really jostle the case in my hand to get the Visor to come out without my wanting it to, so there shouldn't be problems with it accidentally sliding out.  The beltclip is  easy to use, as you only need to press down to lift the plastic clip up and let go for it to spring back against the case.

Conclusion

Although the Handspring Beltclip case is little more than the hard cover with a clip-on, its low price makes it a good value for those that want quick access to their Visor.  It won't win any beauty contests, but it gets the job done.
