everybody's talking about VisorPhone

Of course we think that VisorPhone is really cool, but we're not the only ones. The press is giving it the thumbs–up, too. Here's what they have to say:

"As I made calls, I held the Visor by my ear as with an ordinary portable phone—no one gave me weird looks, and everything felt natural. I also made calls with an attached headset for hands–free operation. Where VisorPhone struts its stuff is in the module's clever integration with the PDA."
Ed Baig, USA Today

"In my tests, the VisorPhone worked just fine. I was able to make calls normally, and if I used a headset I was able to work on the Visor, looking things up or taking notes, while I talked—a great advantage."
Walt Mossberg, The Wall Street Journal

"Handspring has effectively merged the most successful PDA—in this case a Visor running the Palm OS—with the most successful mobile communication model—cellular voice and data. While digital cellular data hasn't been that popular or successful, voice certainly has. Handspring's new VisorPhone allows you to have the best of both worlds all in one device. And here's the good news: it really works, and it works well."
Shawn Barnett, Pen Computing Magazine
