Does the Visor have FlashROM?
There is no built-in FlashROM in the Visors. Any Flash OS upgrades or other Flash software will not work.
Like the Palm M100, for price considerations the Visor does not use FlashROM. Instead the included built-in software and the 3.1H OS are in ROM, which cannot be modified. While patch upgrades from Handspring, flash upgrades such as OS 3.3 and OS 3.5 will not. However, many of the changes included in OS 3.3 are also in 3.1H. Furthermore, especially since many Palm machines out there still use OS 3.1, most software will remain compatible with both 3.1 and 3.3, as well as OS 3.5.
