Treo 600 in Short Supply
palmOne CEO Todd Bradley in a recent interview has said that sales of the Treo 600 smartphone are strong, and that the company is currently dealing with a parts shortage.
"Demand for the Treo continues to ramp. Market acceptance has been extremely strong from carriers and customers, and one of the challenges we're having right now is that demand is outstripping supply," Chief Executive Todd Bradley told Reuters in an interview.
Bradley went on to say that display screens and components sitting below the screens were in short supply, but the company had made good progress in finding multiple suppliers for these parts. Other electronics companies are facing similar problems as the global economy picks up faster than many manufacturers anticipated. The company told a technology conference last week that it expected to ship 160,000 units of the Treo 600 in the fourth quarter ending in May.
Ed Colligan, head of palmOne's wireless division, recently disclosed to the Register that the Treo line would offer the same web browser, email, messaging, media and PIM apps by the end of the year.
