    Has anyone noticed the increasing presence of the Treo 650 in TV shows? Just this week I saw it on House ( Nina, from 24), was using it for her work and actually emailed her assistant when she couldn't move her legs. Hallmark channels Mystery Theaters' Jane Doe with Lea Thompson was using her 650 camera for evidence retrieval and they were actually using the video feature to capture their interrogations.

    I may have seen it once, but I usually see Blackberries. For absolute reliability, that's what I'd choose too...

    Sloane has used a 650 several times on various episodes of "Alias". I noticed a few weeks ago. There might have been more appearances that I missed, but its so damn difficult to concentrate on anything other than the future Mrs. Doom, Jennifer Garner. Especially when she's wearing one of those little red punk rock wigs and a skimpy outfit. Mmmmm...Jennifer Garner *drool*.
    Also, I think I saw one on "Boston Legal" a few weeks ago.
    Go here if you're tired of being .
    It'll be fun.

    I see the Sidekick 2 in more TV shows/movies than other wireless devices with keyboards.

    A couple nights ago, I saw a show about a rich couple with two spoiled teenage sons. One son turned 21 and had a huuuuge house party while the parents were out. When the parents came back home unexpectedly, the mom in the car was checking her messages on what appeared to be a Treo. They only showed the back side of the unit, so I couldn't tell which model, but I'm sure it was a Treo though.

    I've also noticed that Cingular has commercials showcasing the Treo model.

    Since I don't watch many TV shows, I've only seen a few mentioned here where an actor/actress is using the Treo but they are defintely out there.

    What is also interesting to some degree is that of late in my travels around the US I'm seeing more and more Cingular and Verizon TV ads with smartphones featured. It seems Cingular is highlighting the Treo 650 while Verizon is highlighting the Samsung i730. Verizon does display the T650 in their ads, but prominently display the Samsung.

    Also, most paper ads I've seen lately from Cingular or Cingular dealers are featuring the Moto Razr in Black. I have yet to see any large paper ad by a wireless carrier or dealer that features a smartphone, but I'm sure they are out there somewhere.

    I was watching SportsCenter earlier this week and noticed that many NBA ballerholics are rollin with the Treo. This particular episode featured the number one NFL sports agent Drew Rosenhaus (they reported he gets a 3% commission on deals and has done about $500,000,000 in deals thus far) They showed him on the phone in the shower, getting dressed, and driving mostly while on his Treo 650! I was yelling at the TV while my wife just rolled her eyes.

    What's even better is that he uses a RAZR as his regular, more styish phone. The bat phone takes care of buisness.

    BTW, the batman theme (na-na, na-na, na-na) would make an excellent ringtone.
    Cingular 680
