in reply to My favorite color for the Handspring Visor is...

Ah, PalmOS devices, one of my favorite topics. I am lucky enough that my wife keeps fueling my addiction to those little gadgets. I bought a Palm V for myself, then my wife got me an Ice Visor (yes, I voted for Ice, it's waaaay cool) for Christmas, and a Palm VII for our anniversary in May. Now, although I like the Ice look (and the 8MB in the Visor) I can't live now without the wireless connectivity of the Palm VII, and I agree with Adam that the metal finish of the Palm V is much slicker than any plastic finish could possibly achieve, and you just can't beat rechargeable batteries.

So I'm waiting for (Palm, are you listening? :-)) a device with:

  • the looks and size of the Palm V
  • 8MB of RAM
  • wireless connectivity (OmniSky doesn't have coverage where I live - bummer)
  • a color screen!
Oh well, I guess I can dream...

[MidLifeXis]: Whew - you just saved the free world. <o)
[GotToBTru]: i guess it's a placeholder, the code will only fill it in if there is nothing else to use
[GotToBTru]: but then .. if you have nothing to say, why not say nothing?
[MidLifeXis]: I have a user who has a lot of say on how some of our processes work that abhors significant blanks. Perhaps that is a part of it. A not-so-obvious "this space intentionally left blank" indicator.
