The Visor Neo takes the Visor Deluxe to the next level. I like the new casing, which seems sturdier than the original Visor. The casing is very slick-looking, but you can expect to get smudges all over it. The hardware buttons have been slightly redesigned so that they are not so concave, making it easier to play games on the Neo. I like the Fast Lookup and wish that Handspring would make it available to all Visors. The matching hard cover is also very slick-looking and makes the overall look of the device very trendy-looking. This is the perfect Visor for students.
I am going to sound like a broken record here and reiterate the fact that I hate monochrome. The handheld future is in color. I know that Handspring needed to update its two year old Visor line, but how about giving us a revised Prism too? The other thing that is hurting the Visor Neo is that it doesn't have any "new" features. By combining features from the other Visor models, the Visor Neo is an evolutionary product, not a revolutionary one like the Visor Prism.
Visor and Visor Deluxe owners that want a more powerful device at a
good price should pick up the Visor Neo immediately. With good speed
and an updated operating system, the Visor Neo is the perfect device for
entry-level users that do not need color or a built-in battery.
