    For those who do not perform a lot of financial analysis on firms, I would not get too tied up in the operating statements of the last year or so for HS. They chose to make a major shift in strategy, moving from organizers to communicators, and there are always tremendous costs associated with this. They had to shut down production lines and start up others, plus the new devices are marketed entirely differently. HS will take a very large charge this quarter to exit a lease for a building they are not going to use, so a big loss paper loss should be expected this quarter. However, these changes bode very well for the future, as HS has significantly reduced their costs, going forward, and is reaching new deals to get their products in new retail spots, like T-mobiles website and retail outlets (happening soon according to T-mobile's website). I suppose in 3-5 years we will know if the change in strategy was a good idea, or not.

    Lets see.. you are comparing devices that came out really with one that came otu almosta year ago. Of course the newer devices would be better. When the next offering from Handspring comes out..it will be superseded by newer devices a few months down the road too.

    If you hold a 270 and Tungsten T or W together the palm pda is superior in terms of quality, screen, colour etc. Handspring should be bloody glad that Palm do not seem to be interested in marketing them as phones otherwise they'd be history...
    I love my treo but it's reliability is second rate and its flimsy compared to the palm offerings...Handspring desperately needs a higher quality new 270 and quick

    I think the Treo 180 was a success. I am willing to bet that most Treo users out there own a Treo 180. The Treo 90 was probable a bit pricey. But I think it was designed to bridge the Visor ->Treo Communicator transition.

    Thanks Scott. Yeah, those sketches were wonderful. The visual impact is even more effective in presenting your ideas. Well done!

    To Ken and others who got the bad link, please accept my sincere apologies.

    I was talking with a vendor who is plugged in pretty well to the wireless device industry. He indicated that from the day the devices hit the shelves they are end-lifed. ie: the factory has already STOPPED making them.

    In the case of the HS he said that the last Treo was produced around the time they became GA to the public. I'm not sure how true this is but it's something to consider if people are freaking out about HS going belly up because they are just "using up inventory".

    If Handspring is now actively working on the next TREO upgrade model, it would be good to take a look at what Kyocera had just lauched - the "Kyocera 7135". Its way cool!

    What do you guys think?
    When will people on this board stop complimenting those products whose screen will be firmly pressed against your cheek when used in phone mode? NOTE: Skin has oils. Oil gets on the screen. Ick.

    I don't have oil on the window of my Treo, and it's in the same spot as the screen on the clamshell phones. Now a "brick" phone I think is a whole other matter.
