    Our electrical engineering department has decided to offer upgrades for screens from 160 x 160 to 320 x 320 and replacement of the 300K camera to 2 Megs, plus they add an LED flash!

    The retail cost for the upgrades is $ 395

    Please give us some feedback, what percentage of Treo 600 users would go for this upgrade?

    We would do it through EBAY. We are PowerSellers there with great feedback.

    Sounds great!!! Right now, though, I'd have a bit of trouble shelling out another $400 after I just paid $450 for the phone itself. When (if) it comes down to the $250-300 mark, I wouldn't be able to resist!

    I'm in, as long as you agree to send a review unit to a member of the staff of this website so they can test the upgrade, put it through its paces, etc.

    For that kind of money, sending one free evaluation upgrade should be no problem, especially if you are GUARANTEED to get the buzz factor that the magazine Business 2.0 claims was all started here on this forum.

    To other members- if you are in, please mention whether you are in blindly, or you;d like to read a review from treocentral first.

    I'm tenatively in with the reservation about warranty concerns and such.

    Uh yeah....sounds great....how long will the software upgrade take? Seeing as how you are just feeling around for interested people, your upgrade won't be out for at least 9 months....if you are lucky.....$400 for a screen and cam upgrade??? Oh man, that is the sweetest deal I've ever seen! And by sweet, I mean completely idiotic.....moreso are the people who actually believe you are serious....

    Is this for real or is it someone's idea of an early April?

    In any case, even if it were possible, I'm sure battery life will be an issue.

    And while we're at it, why not throw in bluetooth and wifi as well?

    I would definitely be in for 320x320. Don't care about the camera.

    Let's just venture to say this is a possibility and not a hoax, my feedback is:

    Like many I would love to have a better camera on the Treo, but don't you think that $395 is a little expensive for a camera phone many only paid $440 for with discounts/rebates. Personally, I think about $200 would be a reasonable price if this is on the real and if it is possible and the camera delivers as promised.

    Then there would be the issue of risk involved with altering the camera from a manufacturer warranty point of view. And what if the adjustment left the camera not working properly, would one be out of luck or would a warranty be provided?

    Just my initial thoughts.

    Can you also make it start my car, massage my back, open wine bottles, and sell people bridges in New York?

    How much will that upgrade cost?

    Sorry, but this sounds like a complete load of crap!

    I would have to agree with todd there.

    ARHH!! It's not very funny to yank a Treo fanatic's chain!!

    Anyway, if true I would definitely consider this upgrade, but for more like $200-250 bucks max....

    I think we just witnessed the first public display of a successful hack attack against a TREO 600.

    Very out of character for "mgauss", but WAS posted in the wee hours last night - good drugs?

    Oh - wait!

    I know!

    "mgauss" has decided to write another paper for a medical journal, this time titled "Geek Reaction To Improbable Events" - a psychological study.

    Sounds somewhat unlikely, but if it works, count me in!
