Handspring has added VoiceStream Wireless and Powertel to the list of carriers offering its VisorPhone, a cell phone add-on for Visor handheld computers. With the addition of those two GSM (Global Systems for Mobile Communications) service providers, the VisorPhone can now be used in 6,000 U.S. and Canadian cities. The add-on sells for $299. It is available from Handspring's Web site and will be sold at retailers later this year.
Separately, Handspring has inked a deal with D&H Distributing's education division to sell its Visor handheld at university bookstores nationwide.
