And the reason is...

There is more to the difference in colors than words alone can relate. The friggin' Neo comes ONLY in fruity colors. If I want a tutti-fruiti PDA I will buy one of those teeny bopper gadgets with the built in games and cool wireless messaging system. For business users (well many business users) a black or silver color scheme is desirable. For this reason alone I would buy a Platinum over a Neo. What was Handspring thinking? Not all of us work in Silicon Valley.

There is a smoke Neo, which would be somewhere in between silver and black-a perfect solution for a business pro-not too dark and not too flashy!

The Visor Neo had those "Fruity" colors for a reaso. The Neo was aimed at high school kids , who would prbably prefer those colors. The Paltinum was designed for the buisness market

I have a Visor Neo in Smoke... very business oriented color. And Franklin Covey only sells that color, not the other two. SO... I think that having a Neo in smoke should work just fine for a business person.

Me too, me too....

And what's the difference between the Platinum and the Neo except for the colors, anyway? OK, except for the FAST LOOKUP feature -- I bought a Platinum before they were "snuffed" out and then "revived," so as far as I'm concerned, there IS no difference. Why didn't Handspring just compile the Neo and Platinum together? I mean, you have to admit, they're pretty much the same thing -- same space, same batteries, and same Palm OS version number (not like Handspring's gonna update THAT any time soon, but anyway).

And, having the Platinum doesn't make you a business person, and having the Neo doesn't make you a high-school kid. I think Handspring would save money by combining the colors into one NEO. (I like the name better anyway.)
