Are you sure? I saw the Stowaway demoed in January (Macworld Expo San
Francisco, at the Handspring booth), and then again in May, at the
European Visor launch -- both times I saw a serial version, and I've
never heard about Targus having changed that. Given that the Visor has no
USB port, it's somewhat unlikely anyway (the standard docking station is
indeed a USB device, but the Visor's port is serial, just as the Palm's).
