Colour Handspring Visor on sale
$449 65,000 colour Prism
Handspring has released the Visor Prism, the colour-screen version of its electronic organiser.
It is capable of producing more than 65,000 colours, 16 times more than its colour competitors.
The 16-bit $449 device weighs 6.9ozs, 1.5ozs heavier than its monochrome stable mate, but boasts a faster 33MHz processor. It also has a built-in lithium ion rechargeable battery to counteract the power draining abilities of colour screens. The battery lasts about six hours with continuous use, or two weeks occasional use before needing a recharge in the docking cradle.
Handspring has also begun selling the Visor Platinum, a $299 silver model that also boasts the faster 33MHz processor, and has a sharper monochrome picture. ®
