    I just went from the VP to the Treo, it's been great. However from the first time I used it I noticed How slippery the unit is. I have to be careful not to have the unit slip out of my hand. Need some Kind of neoprene or rubberised pads on the sides like a lot of new cameras have. Anyone else experience this problem?

    The Prism has those deep groves on the sides that make it easy to hold onto. My GPS has rubber on the sides, and it helps cushion the fall.

    It would be nice for the Treo to have that kind of rubber. I've dropped my cheap cell phone a couple of times - I need to be more careful now.

    I dropped it in the parking lot today... after a juggle and a grasp at the ear bud, the connector popped out and the treo ultimately fell about 16 inches onto the asphalt. Now there are several nice dinks on the corners and a scuff on the edge of the lid where it was scraped down to the black base... Some rubber or gooved edges would have been nice.

    But, I think I'm also getting used to a device that's much lighter and smaller than my old platinum.

    My new I-book had this problem to it is like oiled glass to handle so I got these stick on "grip things" they are great with super sticky backing I found them at comp usa in the notebook section. They would be ideal for the TREO its to bad they left out the grip edges from the visor...... when I get more I will post the item name and part number if that could help anyone.

    Great tip, Smith!!

    If they are rubber they might even absorb the shock if you still end up dropping it...

    I was just thinking the EXACT same thing yesterday as I was trying to carry my Treo and some books from my car. I noticed just how slippery the thing is (especially when you're wearing gloves in single digit temperatures). I thought "it sure would be nice if this thing had some real thin rubberized grips built in and recessed on the side."

    I think I'll check out the suggestion of the product at Comp USA.

    Need it too. Please supply an SKU so I may order it online.

    The rubber sides seem like a good idea. But the more I think about it, I wonder if the rubber would cause 2 problems: (1) it may increase the size; and (2) it may make the treo harder to put in and out of pockets, since it won't easily "slide" on the fabric.

    My ergonomics comment: I wish the little fins on the side of the lid extended to the middle of the lid. For single-handed operation, you can't really use your thumb to lift the lid.
