Orange Launches Treo 600

Fresh off of announcing that they were launching a Microsoft powered Smartphone, Orange is announcing that they'll be the first to launch the eagerly awaited Treo 600 device. For all the talk of just how wonderful the Treo 600 is supposed to be, now we'll find out if customers agree (and are willing to pay the relatively steep price for one). In case you hadn't been following the space, the Treo 600 is the next generation of Treo devices from Handspring (soon to be PalmOne), that goes much further in combining a phone and a PDA into one package. While most such offering are either too PDA-like or too phone-like - some are saying the Treo 600 is the first to strike the right balance. Now we'll find out if that's just marketing hype or if the device really catches on.

Thank you for reading this Techdirt post. With so many things competing for everyone’s attention these days, we really appreciate you giving us your time. We work hard every day to put quality content out there for our community.

Techdirt is one of the few remaining truly independent media outlets. We do not have a giant corporation behind us, and we rely heavily on our community to support us, in an age when advertisers are increasingly uninterested in sponsoring small, independent sites — especially a site like ours that is unwilling to pull punches in its reporting and analysis.

While other websites have resorted to paywalls, registration requirements, and increasingly annoying/intrusive advertising, we have always kept Techdirt open and available to anyone. But in order to continue doing so, we need your support. We offer a variety of ways for our readers to support us, from direct donations to special subscriptions and cool merchandise — and every little bit helps. Thank you.

–The Techdirt Team
