Handspring Visor deluxe
Handspring was a maker of Palm OS-based Visor- and Treo-branded personal digital assistants. It was run by Jeff Hawkins, Donna Dubinsky, and Ed Colligan, the original inventors of the Palm Pilot and founders of Palm Computing, after they became unhappy with the direction in which 3Com was taking the Palm division. Handspring was founded in June 1998 and merged with Palm, Inc.'s hardware division in 2003 to form palmOne. The Treo 600 was the last product to use the Handspring name.
While the Handspring Visor is out of production and is now considered passé by today's PDA market, the durability of solid state electronics, along with the power and verstility of the Visor series hardware (every model in the line from the start, for example, with a built-in microphone), has sustained a substantial community of fans who continue to use the Visor today. This longevity was assured when the Palm people decided to make their newer operating systems (Palm 4.x and 5.x) backward-compatible with the previous OS (Palm 3.x) which drives the Visor series. Therefore, most of the software that was written for the Visor will also run on the later Palm devices including the new Treos (and vice versa).
There is an immense landscape of software still available, a user community on Yahoo Groups, and a supply of Visor hardware to be had on eBay. The most powerful feature on the Visor is its Springboard Expansion Slot for which a great many modules can still be purchased.
