By David Dritsas
Last week Handspring, makers of the Visor line of Palm OS-based PDAs, announced a PDA trade-in program for PDA users to upgrade to the Visor Edge, its latest, slim-style PDA. Meanwhile the company announced a conservative forecast for its fiscal fourth quarter.
As of June 8th, Handspring began offering a trade-in program just about any user of PDA's including Palms, Pocket PCs and others. The program allows owners of PDAs to purchase a Visor Edge with a $100 credit. Additionally current Visor users can receive $100 off the purchase of a Visor Edge by supplying the company with a proof of purchase. Currently the Edge retails for $399.
