    I'm not sure many people have seen these pictures from the Orange launch yesterday in London. This was posted by jjpl in another thread.

    http://www.pdafrance.com/pdarama/album62?&page=1

    Some interesting things gleaned from them:

    - How bright the Treo screen is compared to the SPV E100.
    - Though the SPV is a little narrower, it is quite thick.
    - The customization for Orange includes using an orange color to highligh applications in the applications list.

    It does not look like the SPV backlight is on in any of those pics.

    I know the SPV's backlight is not on in those shots. I own an SPV, and while it's not the brightest screen around...it definitely is not that bad.

    Let's just put it this way: If the backlight is on in the SPV, the Treo has the brightest screen of anything I've ever seen.

    Why compare the Treo's screen to an unlit SPV?

    It's SPV, not SPVE100. And yes the screen is off.
    and btw, SPVE100 is almost a third the price of treo600.

    It's 129GBP

    Another interesting thing, the size of the "launch" event. Compared to SPV launch this is tiny.

    I guess either they are not users of the SPV or they weren't thinking of comparing brightness, just sizes.

    Do you suppose that the shots that have no phone in them are pics taken with the T600?

    Did anyone else notice the wierd keyboard layout in this picture (not QWERTY):

    Do keyboards in Europe follow an alternate layout

    Interesting! It's logical that HS would adopt regional specifc thumbboard layouts. This certainly would dissuade me from purchasing an unlocked GSM Treo600 from abroad if it doesn't have a QWERTY layout...

    Yep, French keyboards are known as AZERTY rather than QWERTY keyboards.

    I once went to our Paris office and had to use one of their computers - it was incredibly painful tapping a key after hunting for it around the keyboard!

    Of course, French is a differnet language There are many different keyboard layouts... shouldn't expect to have the US layout for all languages.

    I know the feeling, when I lived in europe I had to visit the german and french offices and the AZERTY (french) and QWERTZ (german) keyboards drove me nuts...
    Dutch keyboards are QWERTY, but some of the symbols like : are located in different locations...

    If you think that is bad, try an asian keyboard, or worse japanese or chinese windows versions.. been there done that, got totally confused

    Very true, QWERTY was designed for english so the old skool typwriters wouldnt tangle up.. with different languages you get different frequency of letter usage, hence the different keyboard layout..
    It all makes sense, but its still a pain in the ****

    The Treo 270 was available with AZERTY and QWERTZ layouts. My laptop has AZERTY and my 270 has QWERTY and it's not really a problem for me.

    I should add that it took me about 4 years after my move from the Netherlands to Paris to arrive at that level Still having problems though using PC Anywhere with a US host and a French slave...

    For those that are worried about buying a 600 in Europe: the Orange UK keyboard should be 100% the same as the US version. Unless Orange had muscle enough to force HS to produce a keyboard with a sign.

    Whoa, this picture clearly shows the 600 is longer than the 300:

    I thought it was smaller all-around. Offhand, does anyone know how much thinnner and lighter the 600 is?

    The dutch version of the Treo600 has a normal qwerty keyboard. It is correct that there are special keyboards in holland that have altenate locations for some signs like @ and stuff but most people in holland just user the normal version like in england or america( At least i always do )

    This picture does not have a 300--it's a 270. The Treo 300 is slightly longer than the 270, which will probably make them closer in length or may make the 300 longer.
