New Visors Debut on Monday
InfoWorld is quoting "company sources" who say the Handspring will launch the two latest Visors during a press conference in Tokyo on Monday, October 16.
Information on the new PDAs was leaked to the press last month. The $449 Visor Prism will have a 16-bit color screen (65,536 colors) and will be pushed as a game player. It will utilize a 30 MHz Dragonball processor, a rechargeable lithium-ion battery, and 8 MB of RAM. The second new device will be called the Visor Platinum and will cost $299 and also features the 30 MHz chip, 8 MBs, and a monochrome display.
Jeff Hawkins, co-founder of Handspring and one of the founders of Palm Computing, will be on hand along with Shigeki Komiyama, general manager of the company's Japanese affiliate, Handspring Japan, to present the new devices.
Update: A palm user named Albert Lee has posted a scan from the latest issue of Yahoo Internet Life showing what is supposed to be the Visor Prism.
