    craig,


    i had the same thought when i saw the cover, but I think is is more likely that you slide the cover off and remove the battery. the cover isn't part of the battery.

    My guess would be that the carriers name is being covered up on the back (and photoshopped out on the front). Unless that is not a removable battery and the release button is really a huge reset button.

    Hi Treobk214!

    It is good to be back. The new Treocentral.com discussion forum looks great!

    Actually I started with a Treo 270, then a 300, then a 600. Next of course will be a 650 or Ace, and then who knows? It looks like there may very well be a Phantom Six.

    Cheers!
    Jake

    very few people, if any, passed on the Treo 600...in fact, many bought it, making it an enormous success, despite your prognostications.

    Though I admit I was one who rediculed Jake for his eyeball controlled UI, I did skip the 600 (mainly) because of the low-res screen (I have a 300).

    Mike,

    I am only speaking from my own experience. I always try to get people to buy Treo 600s, but I have many, many freinds who passed on it because of the screen. I would tell them they should buy it anyway, but they would not budge. I don't know why, but they would not.

    That's all.

    Jake,
    different folks for diffrent folks.

    Now the real question...where are the JakeE Jeans? Were they released?
  10. #570  
    Well Here's my 2 cents worth ... as I said 90% Love it .. I can only imagine how much more of a webpage you can see with the higher res screen!

    I have to agree with past posts .. the blue text on the keyboard looks cheap. Also I miss the number keys being colored differently - I find it useful.

    I currently have the GSM version and I must say I am not a fan of the big hump on the TDMA .. this seems to have the hump on the GSM?

    Hmmm bluetooth GPS!!

    The manual says 'If the battery drains to the point where your Treo doesn’t turn on, the Treo stores your data safely for about three days'. I've always been reassured by this, and, presuming it's true, data loss shouldn't be a major worry unless you're more than three days from a charger. But yes, I do backup daily and synchronise frequently, just in case!

    gfunk, do you know how the nand chip backup thing on the UX machines works? I mean, when is the data written to the backup store and does the software scan for modified files or dump all the data in RAM to backup periodically?

    I know this is true of the 300, and I can assume that it would be true of the 600.

    FWIW, I stand corrected on there NOT being a "front" mic on the 650, but is is now more on the bottom of the unit istead of on the front as in the Sprint slide pic.

    Not that anybody is likely to find my previous post amongst all of this, what a thread!

    jake, would you be kind enough to show us the blueprints for your phantox
  19. #579  
    got jumbled above. blueprints for your phantom six? can you drop us a pic? thanks.

    I would love to see a simple keyboard mod/overlay that would restore the colored number keys. If it's an overlay I guess it would have to be translucent or something.
