    I wonder how this is gonna affect sales of the 600 now that we have "proof" that its replacement is almost out the door?

    I was just thinking too that if now the sales drop off it will tick off T-Mobile. They got burned with a ton of inventory of 270's and now they are finally stocking the 600 in their stores. They just can't win, can they?

    Looks good but the numbers not having there own color block is a mistake IMO. Looks like a removable battery, YAH!. Screen dose not look that high res though, but could just be the UI. New buttons like home are a welcome addition.
    Exciting stuff.

    Someone mention that it was in the presentation of sprint called "fall 04" but this is not a sprint phone since it has a SIM slot.

    can any answer this... how come the conector in the bottom not be usb?

    Well, maybe if T-Mobile, and Verizon for that matter, would join us out here on the cutting edge that wouldn't happen so often. Damn conservatives.

    ..
    it does amaze me that the treo 600 designers put the home and menu keys at the bottom and only one shift key. perhaps they should have looked at a regular keyboard and also pretended to actually use a papermockup of the phone before putting arthritic home and menu buttons. also i want a treo 650. yah.

    Okay, I usually try to stay on topic, but the little Treo/iPod couples at the bottom of your post are the coolest things I've seen on here in a while, so...kudos!

    Archie is gay? I don't see what that has to do with the pics of the Treo 650.
    So how did I get to be gay? I'm just a designer who is aware of functional aesthetics. I'm saying the screening on those buttons is not right and I stand by my statement/opinion. I'm not going to make an issue out of it though it will probably change!

    At least I hope it will change; not only did they take away the dark blue background to set off the numbers, they shrunk the numbers down in size?? How are you supposed to find them.

    Locked or unlocked?
    Revised contract with carrier (e.g. longer contract)?
    My guess is that there will be NO upgrades! Why? The upgrade program was developed by Handspring. At that time they needed maximum exposure for this product, since they did not have the adequate resources to advertise and market it. Also Handspring was trying to revive interest in the product as both the 270 and 300 were already getting 'old.'

    Fast forward to fall 2004. PalmOne now owns the product line, with the resources to market. The T600 has been a runaway smash hit, with long lines to get one for the first 6 months. Every technical writer in the industry has declared the T600 the tech gizmo of the year.

    So.... where would the upside be for PalmOne to do the upgrade program? They don't need the marketing 'buzz'. The certainly don't want to minimize their margin on product. They also don't want to encourage shortages in the T650/Ace, particularly in the fall/winter 'Holiday' seasons.

    My 2 cents....
