    What is this thing that looks like a compartment door on the back of the Treo under the sticker with all the numbers? It is NOT where the SIM card goes.

    Do any of the people who saw the real thing know what this is? Is it somehow there to allow attaching to a belt clip?

    Hmm, that's the first time I've noticed that.
    Is that the GSM T600 from pdafrance website?

    Why is that? Where does the SIM go?

    C'mon, now. Everyone knows that's where the secret decoder ring goes!

    No, seriously, I don't think it is a compartment. I think the flat part was made that way so that there is a place to put the stickers so they don't get rubbed off. And I think you may be right...the slot could be an attach point. Just guessing, though. Anyone know for sure? The 3D demo on the Orange site shows the same thing.

    The SIM card goes in a slit on the top of the phone, behind the IR port.

    Or maybe it's for securing the phone on a cradle and/or car kit.

    Its defenately not a compartment, or it is a 30yr old child proof one.. I couldn't open the thing... didnt try too long though since it was not my treo...

    The sim card does NOT go in behind the IR port. Thats where the sd card goes. No phone designer in his right mind would make the sim card that easy to lose/steal. The sim card goes in right behind that little door in the back. That should be pretty obvious.

    Incorrect, I actually handled the treo600 and the SIM definately goes in the top.
    It has a little sledge between the SD card and the back of the unit..

    Dude, dont USE CAPITALS when you have no idea what you are talking about and clearly didn't even read prior threads.

    I too have used it, the sim card door is on top and is behind the SD card area.

    Its also on all the schematics that HS is release.

    Really... dont spew about what NO phone designer would do or not do, because, clearly, you have no idea what you are saying.

    I'd say you hit the nail on the head.

    It isn't for the backup battery. That one will use the cradle connector. Here's a quote from the latest Developers Guide:

    al Battery 1-wire protocol
    DQ+
    Treo 600 will support an al battery through the cradle interface. Unused pins from previous Treo products will be used to support the al battery. The al battery pack will also contain the same Dallas Semiconductor DS2761 gas gauge IC that will communicate to the CPU using the 1-wire protocol. The battery acts as a second battery.
    Still searching the documentation HAND handed out last Wednesday to see if it says anything about this thing on the back.

    I have a treo right here and if this is so I think you have to let the backup battery be installed at the store or something because I see no way of removing the thing without damaging the treo600 ( And I don't want that because it has to be returned to handspring ).

    Attached is the hardware diagram and below is the list. Doesn't help at all

    Rick, please go ahead and break it to see what's behind it. It's only a pre-production version.

    At the heart of the Treo 600 is a TI OMAP 310 ARM processor running at 144MHz. It also contains:
    Color STN LCD with integrated touch panel and LED backlight
    Integrated GSM/GPRS or CDMA radio for voice and data
    Audio subsystem with headset and speakerphone capabilities
    Application keypad and QWERTY keyboard
    Built-in VGA resolution (640 x 480) digital camera
    Built-in Secure Digital (SD) slot, with support for SDIO. SDIO is
    supported in the 1-bit with DMA mode. SPI and 4-bit mode are not
    supported.
    4 or 8 MB of NOR FLASH (OS and applications partly
    compressed). The choice between 4 or 8 MB is dependant on
    carrier configuration and localization requirements.
    32 MB of SDRAM (user data and expanded OS)
    IrDA 1.1 module with speeds up to 115.2 kbps
    15-pin cradle interface with RS-232 and USB (similar to other Treo products)
    Lithium Polymer battery, approximately 1800 mAh

    I'm starting to think that, if it is not a door, then at least the little hole is there for many things to fit in for a secure hold, including car kit, cradle, battery, etc.

    I don't know for sure, but I suspect that the slot/hole at the bottom of the panel is used to stabilize a battery sled.

    Assuming that the cradle connector at the bottom of the Treo 600 is the charging point, an extra battery attachment that fits along the back would need something near its top to keep the sled from falling away from the back of the Treo.

    My guess is that the top of battery sled clicks into this hole. I don't think the "panel" is a panel at all, but merely a smooth, recessed place to put FCC/Serial number info.

    Of course, I could be totally wrong.

    Am am sure that I read in one of the 1st 600 postings, that there would be a full featured car kit. If this is true, and they have maintained the current pin-out of the bottom connector, wouldn't an additional connector would be needed for speaker/microphone I/O (If it is a real car kit). Just a thought.
