    A non-wireless version of Treo 600 like the Treo 90 would be cool because so far I have found no PDA that can be operated by one hand. The Sony Clie can launch applications and that's it.

    I know Palm is originally desiged to be used with a stylus, but once a PDA has a keyboard, why still force people to use the stylus as a must but an option?

    Even a cell phone can be fully operated with 9 digit keys, why can't a PDA with a full QWERTY keyboard?

    i'm sure you will see it eventually, but it wont be a "treo".

    it might m a T|C2 though, after the merger is complete.

    I expect the T|C2, if there is such a thing, will be a killer device.

    You you say non-wireless, do you mean totally non-wireless...no BT or wifi? If so, why would you even need a thumbboard in this case? A thumbboard only makes sense in a wireless device for the purpose of email/sms functionality. I don't think you'll ever see a handheld w/integrated thumbboard w/o some form of wireless funcitonality. The failure of the Treo90 in the market is further proof of that....

    Do you mean - strictly a PDA?

    Or do you mean - no online capabilities, but with phone capabilities?

    I'm honestly not sure why you'd want a Treo 600 that didn't function as a telephone. The TC would be a better choice for that situation.

    I think he meant no radio (phone) but why wouldn't you want a keyboard (SONY NX, NL, NX etc) have them and no phone. BT, WiFi SD cards will fill that in.

    I would say hopefully but not a big wish maker there.

    One handed use is great. I can take out my Clie, launch the dictionary, type a couple of letters of a word and view the definition without having to flip anything open. Same with checking out dates and contacts.

    The Sony TG-50 is pretty usable one-handed with a clear half-flip lid and a program called KeyQuick. The clear lid allows you to see the screen and still use the keyboard:

    The app KeyQuick allows you to map apps and functions to the keyboard. So on my TG50 I've mapped Play, stop, FWD and RWD Vol + and Vol - from the audio player to hard keys on the keyboard.

    Although the TG50 wasn't designed to be one-handed like the Treo, it's still pretty nice.

    Hi,
    My point was a PDA without having to use a stylus. The Treo 90 was meant to fail because it still needed a stylus to do almost everything.

    Like King Hippo said, I'll use a PDA much more if I don't have to open or pull out anything each and every time. And we don't have to if they are all like Treo 600. I don't need a cell phone, otherwise Treo 600 is my dream coming true.

    160 by 160 screen,
    no BT or WiFi, 32MB memory and 144mHz

    what a brilliant idea for a PDA!

    I can almost see they sell... 5 of these in the next 10 years.

    Didn't anybody learn anything from treo 90?

    Well the original Zire had far less specs than that and is the world's most popular PDA!

    Being priced at $79 helps a bit

    I am sure they will sell 5 MILLION if the price is right.

    Well, believe it or not, that was a *very* competitive price point at that time, and I don't think anyone can say differently. Spec-wise, it should probbaly have been priced higher. Yesterday's PDA prices are not the same as what you're seeing today, so you can't exactly compare the two!

    I wouldnt mind a WiFi version (with hi-res screen)...

    But a 600 stripped from phone and no WiFi/BT and the same screen makes no sense to me..
