Handspring has announced a $100 price drop on its grayscale Handspring Treo 180 and 180g communicators.. While supplies last, customers can purchase a Treo 180 for $249 when they sign up for a service contract from T-Mobile or Cingular. In related news, Amazon is currently running a $250 promotion on the color Treo 300 with a contract from Sprint.
"The Treo 180 now provides the same great experience at an incredible new price point," said Joe Sipher, vice president of worldwide marketing for Handspring. "The Treo 180 is a great value for the customer who wants a compact, integrated wireless voice and data device with a crisp monochrome screen."
Treo 180 is a compact communicator that combines a GSM mobile phone, a Palm OS organizer, wireless email, Internet access and text messaging all in one device. Treo’s large touch screen sets the product apart from other high-end mobile phones. The display offers better clarity and readability of text and graphics, ideal for Web browsing, viewing photos and playing games. The 180 comes with a built-in QWERTY keyboard that enables people to use the device with one hand while also providing faster and more familiar data entry and navigation. The 180g has a Graffiti writing area that appeals to loyal Palm OS customers.
Features include Instant Lookup of phone numbers and contacts, 50 speed dials, a traditional dial pad on the keyboard, call log, easy three-way calling, caller ID and speakerphone. It is a dual-band GSM world phone that can roam internationally. Treo has 16MB of memory and also includes Handspring’s Blazer Web browser, a rechargeable lithium ion battery, a travel charger with HotSync cable, and a headset for hands-free phone use.
