    I think it looks interesting. At least they are starting to listen to us and start putting 16MB of RAM in it. It's smaller than a Visor. It looks like it's more along the size of a Palm m100. The screen is probably that small. The Treo 180 is has a QWERTY keyboard built in taking the place of the graffiti area, which I think was a good idea. For you hardcore graffiti people there's the Treo 180g which is more normal with the graffiti still there. The Treo 270 is touting a "high-visibility color screen" in it. Hopefully it's a high-res screen. This one also has the QWERTY keyboard and they'll probably have a graffiti one when it comes out. They put a jog rocker on all the models! A first for Handspring. Maybe they will start putting that on new models too. ::hopes::

    Unfortunately one can't get their hands on one of these. This is just them saying it exists. The Treo 180 will probably be out early spring or so. The Treo 270 will be out summer time. All units are GSM. I will probably not be considering one because I can't stand any of the available GSM companies in my area.

    Handspring is "aggressively" developing a CDMA model.. and according to the dimensions, it's actually SMALLER than an m100! The website touts it as the smallest palm ever.

    I think the Treos are great looking. Once the price comes down (haha, 6 months before it's out) I'll think of getting one..

    There are 2 main questions on Treo?

    What are we doing with our springboard module?

    I'm living in Europe, and w'll get 900 and 1800 gsm band. But if I'm travelling in USA, I'll need 1900 band, so the Treo isn't useful for "road warrior traveler". Better to buy a Motorola tri-band...

    And.. they'll be not available before 2002; so what are we buying now? An old Prism, or we have to wait 2002? I think Handspring'll lose a lot of money (cash..) during next common months...

    Regards

    Kepping them with your Handspring Visor, of course!

    Seriously, the Treo is NOT a Visor replacement. It's a totally new and SEPARATE line of products for the company. If you want a replacement for your Visor, just get a new model (one already out, or one that's no doubt in development) and get a VisorPhone.

    Visorphone?

    In Italy it costs L. 899,000 around 350 US$ plus phone cost...

    (Look at www.mediaworld.it or italian site of handspring..)

    It has no market here in Europe at this price level.

    ciao Roberto,

    the Treo has 900 (europe) and 1900 (US)
    I don't know about italy, but in Holland you are limited to certain providers if your phone does not have 1800, but at least you can make it work.
    Also if you travel to the US the 1900 should work there (if your provider supports roaming in the US...)

    And untill 2002? buy a phone with IR and wait till the Treo is available...the motorola triband you mentioned would do nicely...

    If you look in this web site:

    http://handspring.modusmedia.nl/hand...treo/index.asp

    you'll read Treo'll have 900 and 1800 in Europe.
    If you have only 900, in Europe it'll be out of the market. Only in Italy we have already 2 company working ONLY with 1800...

    Bye

    mmm this (US) site says:GSM 900/1900 MHz world phone
    while this (Euro) site says: GSM900-1800 phone

    Would they make 2 models?

    As for the 1800 only providers, in holland they have a couple of those too... The new providers could only get the 1800 network....
