Memo from Martin P Burns of PricewaterhouseCoopers

-------------------- Start of message text --------------------

Nope - couldn't justify the extra 150 quid over the platinum.

I really don't care about colour on a handheld which is used 99.9%
of the time for text, and I'd have to go through a *lot* of AAAs to justify
rechargeable batteries (the ones in my Palm III last months). The
phone bit is rechargeable anyway.

Plus, of course, the platinum is supposedly faster.

Did some pricing @ Dixons at the airport on Friday and the
basic Handspring is about 200 quid, so you're getting the VisorPhone
and 3 months' of unlimited data bandwidth for free.

And I wanted a new palm anyway.

Anyone want to buy a PalmIII with connectivity & software for Mac and
PC, plus a Palm Keyboard (very, very, very sexy and useful. That's the
bit I'm going to miss most)?
