The Handspring I really wanted

Filed under:General — eric @ 10:44 am

The Handspring I really wanted was the Edge. It’s nearly half the thickness of the Platinum I ordered, it has a flip cover to protect the screen (the one weakness I’d read about the Visors), and it had a built-in rechargable battery pack rather than using AAAs. It cost a hundred dollars more though, which I couldn’t justify. So, the Platinum it was.

So when I got an email today announcing the Edge was cut by $50 and included both free overnight shipping and a zip-up leather case, I changed my mind. I’ll be taking advantage of Handspring’s 30-day no questions asked return policy on the Platinum, which may arrive after the Edge.

And the phone’s still free.
