    Come on, Sprint.

    A couple of months back, after the 600's launch, Handspring co-founder Trip Hawkins was said to have been seen with an Orange-branded 600.
    Is Trip his nickname??

    The article says, "The GSM version to be used by Orange is thinner than the CDMA version which Sprint will offer this autumn in the US."

    Any thoughts on whether this might be true? As I said in an earlier thread, the rumored specs of the Treo 600 do not indicate it to be a much smaller or lighter device than the current Treo 300, so a "thinner" version might be good news (if you're willing to go with GSM rather than CDMA).

    ussually, gsm models are thinner than their cdma counterparts.

    if you want to keep your treo thin, just make it throw up right after y feed it apps!

    The overseas model of the 180 was released before the US model. Maybe history will repeat itself. With more people using GSm in Europe and Asia, it might make sense to go with that market first.

    I hope so, I am ready to buy!

    That's probably because they have to fit those old vacuum tubes that Qualcomm still uses into the CDMA model!

    Or it could be because the string going to the next GSM phone only needs a small knot to keep it attached. Exactly how tight do you have to get the string to get GPRS to work?

    Trip Hawkins is/was CEO of a game company (3DO, I believe). I think he also had some affiliation with Electronic Arts.

    I think whomever is writing for The Register has shown their true colors as a video game junkie. Either that, or they need to be a little more careful in getting their facts straight. (They've since corrected it, by the way.)

    UHH...did everyone else miss this snipit from the article:

    The handset contains 32MB of RAM, which can be added to using the handset's SD card slot - though we have seen specs. listing just 16MB of RAM, so Orange may be offering a lower-specced version of the device.
    So the Orange Treo 600 may only have 16 MB of Ram?! UGH! I hope not and the register is certainly not the most accurate of news sources, but that would pretty lame if true imo. If true though, Orange better price the Treo600 really damned low...

    SInce the CDMA version is supposedly larger than the GSM version because of the use of Vacuum Tubes, we will need a car battery to light the filaments of the 5U4 rectifiers and 6146 Power Amplifiers.

    Anyone knows how credible this news source is?
