    This review states that the T615 is backlit TFT, not frontlit reflective. If true, what does this mean for picture quality and visibility in direct sunlight?
    That IS a Palm III form-factor in my pocket, AND I'm happy to see you.

    I emailed the author of that review to ask a few things....

    -How do you like the stylus?
    -Have you compared the screen to that of the crappy Palm M505? How does it look in direct sunlight?
    -How did you feel the color spectrum was displayed on the new screen? I've heard the reds look more brown.
    -How have you found the battery to hold up? The T600C is known to have a poor battery life.
    -Did you have a chance to try OmniRemote in conjunction with the Enhanced IR?


    I'll post any response I get here....

    Hey Slot. I also answered you on PDABuzz, but I will do so here as well.

    The screen on the T600 is Tranflective. Meaning it is Backlit, but also reflective. The concept is, it should work fine in direct sunlight, but also be brighter indoors.

    Here is the link to a pretty good article about Transflective Displays.

    Actually, if Sony did make a PocketPC, it would probably be a hit.

    Got my answers back from the reviewer....not the best answers but I understand be probably doesn't have time to rewrite a review just for me.....

    Dear Ryan,

    Thanks for reading the review. I apologies for missing out the following details because I had like only three days to do the exclusive review.

    How do you like the stylus?

    Yes I did like the stylus. Maybe there was nothing to dislike about it, hence, I didn't pay much too detail about it. It was light and rather slim. But not the same as the Handspring stylus which had some added weight near the tip.

    Have you compared the screen to that of the crappy Palm M505? How does it look in direct sunlight?

    Under normal light, the display was much better than the Palm m505. But because the product was under Non-Disclosure Agreement, I did not have the change to test it outside and as open as I wish I could. But I did try it for a while under sunlight but the text and detail was more visible than I could remenber when using the Palm m505.

    How did you feel the color spectrum was displayed on the new screen? I've heard the reds look more brown.

    Apologise for this section as I really did not notice the color spectrum. But your input is very useful and I will remenber to look at the colors spectrum for future PDA tests.

    How have you found the battery to hold up? The T600C is known to have a poor battery life.

    Yes, the battery didn't hold up very long. When I switched on the displayed for the entire photoshoot. Started with full battery but after the photoshot, it started to showed low battery status. But it charged rather quickly, in less than half an hour I was at full battery already.

    Did you have a chance to try OmniRemote in conjunction with the Enhanced IR?

    Nope, did not test it with OmniRemote. Neither did the CLIE remote commander able to be trained with other remotes.

    Thanks again for your input. There were a couple of suggestions which I can use for my next PDA review.

    Got your post over at PDABuzz. Interesting to read the takes on displays from a totally different group of folks (boaters). I'm going to assume that if this transfective display is good enough for a boater to read all day long (through sunglasses) that it should be more than enough for us land-lubbers.

    rclayton, good digging!
