    According to The Wall Street Journal, the Treo 270 (color) will be "introduced" "next week." And the price will be $499, not the $599 that Handspring has always said.

    That's the good news. Here's the bad news: "heavy e-mail users may want to wait to buy a Treo until this summer, when Sprint's version will come out. It will work on Sprint's forthcoming high-speed network, providing a nearly always-on experience for downloading e-mail, much like the BlackBerry does, eliminating the need to constantly place calls to get e-mail. It will also download mail much faster than the current Treo and will offer billing plans oriented toward heavy data use, thus limiting runaway phone bills."

    Won't the promised GPRS capability also provide always-on-email service?

    Hi....Wasn't sure if anyone read this also.

    As a longtime VDx owner, I am anticipating the 270 like a few years ago, for the VDx. I just hope they have better luck with the shipping woes (does anyone remember that?)
