    Hey folks, during the Chicago Treo Roadshow I was able to quickly snap some pics of the various mock Treo prototype designs that PalmOne displayed in the presentation. These pics are also present in the presentation CD that was given at the roadshow, but I figure it's much easier to post the pics here instead of trying to extract the pics from the powerpoint slideshow (btw how do you do that anyway?). In anycase, the pics are quite interesting imo and show the various design possibilities PalmOne was considering. There is a SideKick like design, a design that looks alot like the Rim 7100t and various other permutations. I figured it would be nice to share these pics to many of those who aren't able to attend the various Treo Roadshows! Cheers!

    Great. Thanks. Fun to look at.

    Make my funk the Gfunk -- don't want my funk uncut.

    Do you remember that line from the Parliament Funkadelics?

    Very interesting. I'm glad the 650 turned out the way it did, although the Blackberry style one is pretty nice looking.

    Were these prototypes from the days of 600 design or 650 design?

    I am sure most of these are from the 600. Looking at the second picture I would guess they put in some prototypes from the first treo's too.
    Everex Freestyle -> Palm IIIx -> Visor Deluxe -> Sony CLIE -> Kyrocera 6035 -> Toshiba e740 -> Tungsten T2 -> Treo 600 -> Treo 650 -> Treo 700p -> Centro -> Pre

    I would love to see an inexpensive version like the one depicted in the third picture to the far right, with a standard dial pad.

    thanks for the photos, gfunk.

    Although I was wondering at the show why the P1 designer was talking about everything palm went through to create the 650, when the real design revolution came about through Handspring a year earlier. Was the Palm designer at the show a former Handspring designer?

    Notice several antenna-less designs. That is what I would like!

    I know, if they made this it would make a great design for an entry level Treo. Who knows, great designs don't die, they are just re-encarnated when someone else steals them... hehe

    HAHA! Yeah I remember that. However I kinda prefer the lyrics from Warren G's 'Regulate':

    G-Funk
    step to this
    I dare ya
    Funk
    on a whole new level
    Nate:
    the rhythm is the bass and the bass is the treble
    G:
    Chords
    Strings
    We brings
    Melody
    G-Funk
    where rhythm is life
    and life is rhythm
    Nate:
    If you know like I know
    you don't wanna step to this
    It's the G-Funk era
    funked out with a gangsta twist
    if you smoke like I smoke
    then you high like everyday
    and if your *** is a buster
    213 will regulate

    hehe, its funny, they did all that work into designing a new form factor and thinking up new design ideas and the one used is exactly the same as the treo 600 except the keyboard and call and end buttons!!!

    I quite like the shape of the middle treo in the third picture.
