Handspring to update Visor line RSN
Ace, Columbia to supersede Deluxe, Platinum, say wagging tongues
Palm-based PDA maker Handspring is preparing some new models and price cuts to help it win back customers after a disastrous second quarter.
Two new Visors are in the works, according to hints heard by Web site PDA Buzz: one codenamed Ace, the other codenamed Columbia. At least, we reckon they're codenames - as PDA Buzz notes, they're certainly odd names for shipping product.
Little is known about either machine beyond on the PDAs they're set to supersede: the Visor Deluxe and Visor Platinum, respectively.
The Platinum is due for a price cut at the end of this week, rumour suggests, as is the Visor Edge. The Platinum will fall from $249 to $199, the Edge from $399 to $299, both in 19 August. ®
