Handspring Treo Available January 14
The NY Times David Pogue has written a very positive review of the wireless Handspring Treo. In addition to his other comments, he said something that Handspring probably isn't thrilled about. According to Mr. Pogue, the Treo will be released on Monday, January 14. Handspring itself has only said the Treo 180 and 180g would be available sometime this month but not given an exact day. It isn't unusual for reviewers to be told the release dates of products but they are asked not to reveal them if the company hasn't.
The Treo 180 will have a built-in keyboard while the 180g will use Graffiti for text input. Both of these will have monochrome screens and cost $400 with a service contract.
Later this year, the company will release the Treo 270 with a color screen and a built-in keyboard. Handspring currently plans to charge $600 for it.
