    Has anyone documented the "Easter Eggs" found in the Treo 600 so far?

    If not, and you know one, post it here!

    thanks

    If you draw a circle in the lower right part of the screen of the "general" setting screen in the prefs app, it will draw an real Easter Egg. Leave it there, and every so often you will see a yellow taxi drive across your screen

    what the blazes is an easter egg doing at the lower right corner of a treo 600 smartphone? how random and bizarre. does this provide some kind of extra function, other than this TAXI?

    WOW... how strange!

    I think Druce is blown smoke...this egg dates back to either the Palm Vx or M100 series... different OS too!

    I just tried it and the easter egg appeared. Havn't seen a taxi drive by yet.

    Nope -- this definitely works. I'm sitting here right now looking at a Treo600 and a Treo300 both with little Easter eggs on their screens. ...I lack the patience to verify the taxis thing, though.

    I enabled my easter egg on day one. I never saw anything until this past Friday. Little yellow taxi drove across my phone screen. Must be a very random timing thing. I had an easter egg on my Kyo 6035 running OS 3.5 and never saw anything happen. Guess it the right place at the right time thing.

    confirmed works on the GSM Uk model too. For the benefit of others, the drawn circle that worked for me was only about half a centimetre diameter and right in the bottom righthand corner...

    got the egg... not seen any taxis yet...
    Palm Vx -> Palm M505 -> Treo 180g -> Treo 600 (UK GSMrevA)

    Anyone know if the pac man can be enabled? I got it a few times on my treo 300. Instead of the flipping HS logo, you get pac man eating some dots across the screen. Anyone know what I'm talking about?

    so what's the story? I have to sit with my screen on the General Prefs selection? Or can I go to another app?

    I got my easter egg...after 5 minutes of drawing different sizes and shapes in the bottom corner...interesting.

    Very interesting - thanks to tgabber's explanation I got an Easter Egg!

    Are you chaps aware of any other eggs?
