Treo 90 in EU

You can order it in any EU country from handspring.co.uk. The site is just not UK-centric, but Handspring's European site (.com being the US-centric one).

Oh the irony ... scroll down the page and click 'BUY NOW' ....

Page not found.

Says a lot about the state of a company when mistakes like this happen.

Ed, have you seen this?


It appears to be a video clip captured with a clie NR70V at very good quality, 30 frames per second!!

There is a thread at www.cliesource.com discussing this:


Could this have been taken with a Sony OS 5 device that looks like the NR70V? :)

Wow. That would be really cool. I have to admit Sony does some neat things. Now if only they'd make a Palm-Phone. Until then, my Treo is nice and safe.

Treo 300?

Are you sure that it supports the Treo 300? I thought
that being a Sprint product there was no Mac Support.

The info I got from Handspring says, "Products currently supported by the download include all Visor handhelds and the Treo 300 communicator."
