Ed is misinformed

The prices Ed quoted are way off. Gateway is not offering Visors for higher than retail prices. In fact all pricing is the same as you would find at the Handspring site. Discounts will be offered as well.

If you go to this page on the Gateway site:
you will see the prices I quoted, $399 and $579. Where did you see something different?

Yup... I sniffed around their site for a bit and saw the same price listings.

Let's do the math on the "Mobile Pro Package". A Visor Deluxe costs $250. I found a Targus leather case for $25. Documents to Go costs $40. StreetFinder costs $70. SimpleSketch is $15. That totals up to $400, which is what Gateway is selling it for. I guess this might be a good deal if you were buying a Gateway computer already, so you could get this for $380. Wow, a $20 savings.
