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.

  1. I told T about your free phone…and we discussed how a phone would really suck out the battery power…and that the Visor already eats batteries like they are going out of style…and everytime the batteries die you risk losing your data if you can’t hotsink the thing immediately. She checked and discovered that she could not use rechargable batteries with her model, but mentioned that the new model had rechargable batteries. So kudos to you.
