Handspring Visor Deluxe

Handspring Visor is my first PDA. This is where I learned to write my first non PC app using C. I owned the device for about a year, then I lost the device. Few years later, someone sold me a same mode for a very low price. Around 2009 (before I bought a Kindle), I still used the device when traveling a long journey, just to entertain me so I don't have to drain my cell phone battery. Two AAA bateries can last for weeks.

The memory capacity of this device is only 8 Mb, this is shared for data and program. The first time I owned this device, I owned ?Siemens SL45 that has a memory card and infrared port. I put some of my ebooks and other data in the SL45, and when I need it, I just beam the PDB/PRC file to my Palm.
