Report from Internet World
This report is the first in a series of articles that will be published containing information from Internet World. It was updated on 10/8/99 to include additional Springboard previews.
Internet World 1999 was the first chance for the public to see the Visor and its support accessories in person. Here are our opinions and impressions:
The Visor Itself
Of the rest of them, only the "Green" is interesting, sea-green-like; but I think the others are just childish. Sorry! As for the translucent Visors being color on its face, backed by "Ice," I now understand the reason. Except for the "Graphite" Visor, all of the docking stations are "Ice" colored! ("Graphite," of course, has a "Graphite" dock.)
Marcus: I agree with Mike here. The translucent colors have a Color Gameboy style to them, but we need to remember which market they are for - low to mid end consumers. Many college/high school students would probably want translucent Visor, while business people will go for the stylish graphite. VisorCentral reader David Levin, who also visited Internet World, stated that "They didnít come off as Gameboy-ish to me. I thought the colors were a nice change from standard black/grey. And no, Iím not a kid/student."
Marcus: Mike is right - the Visor feels VERY thin. Not as thin as a Palm V, but almost. The unit feels solid and the application buttons seems to work great.
