Can they Deliver!

I really like my Visor, which works very well. But, buying anything from HandSpring seems to be a problem!! I guess I'm wondering if it's a supply problem or is it just a problem with their U.S. order fulllfilment?

I see they are now available Online at, maybe they have fixed the ordering problems.

I would say that Handspring has fixed their former ordering problems. There have been numerous reports on this site and other of speedy deliveries from HS. In fact I ordered a Visor from Amazon and recieved it 3 days later with standard shipping.
