Updated PalmOS licensee Handspring's upcoming colour PDA, the Visor Prism, has made an unexpected early appearance on the Web.

The Prism, seen running a version of SimCity, actually appeared in Yahoo!'s Internet Life mag (page 131, apparently) as an illustration alongside an interview about handhelds, but was quickly scanned and posted by a Palm fan, according to PalmStation.com.

The Internet Life illustration dubs the device shown a Visor Prism. We weren't aware of a colour PalmOS version of SimCity, but thanks to the many Register readers who pointe out there is a version of the god sim, released just after the colour Palm IIIc was launched (see link, below).

Speaking of which, just like the IIIc, the Visor Prism appears to have a smaller screen than the regular Visor, suggesting that if it is a fake, it's a very clever one. It's certainly very well done. You can decide by checking out the scans here. ®
