At last.. a hybrid PDA/phone with a real
keyboard! The Handspring Treo 600 is designed
for people, like me, who hate handwriting
recognition systems and yearn for a compact
unit with a QWERTY keyboard.
Although the Treo looks
unusual, it's based on the popular Palm
OS 5 operating system and packs a built
in digital camera, java support, WAP over
GPRS and access to the wide range of Palm
OS applications and games.
The Treo's standby time is up to 300 hours, with
a 4 hour talktime which is better than many
devices of this type. Memory expansion is
through a built-in SD slot. There's good
support for email on the move too, and the
decent keyboard makes sending messages a
breeze. Oh yes, it has a built-in digital
camera too so it's pretty well loaded.
Measuring 112x60x22mm it's around the
size of standard PDA device. Weight is 168g,
so it's not exactly lightweight but on the
other hand it packs a lot of features in.
Standy time is up to 10 days with up to
6 hours talktime which isn't bad at all
for this kind of product.
Available now on Orange.
