Was the visor the original modular device?

I was thinking about the excellent Handspring Visor and their springboard modules and realised that these were probably the original precursors to the modular devices that will be coming to the market soon. 

Handspring had a great vision that perhaps couldn't have moved beyond what they had with the springboard and onto a much more modular device framework as we have now. Or at least that's being promised to us. But I like to think that they could've done more interesting things in a modular setting. 

It was in my opinion a lost opportunity, the mobile world could have been quite a different place if they'd pursued their original path.
