Rumor: Is the Treo 90 Handspring's Mystery Device?
Last month, Donna Dubinsky, Handspring's CEO, said her company would be releasing a new device that is not a Visor . She said it would borrow some of the design characteristics of the Treo line but not be a wireless device. Recently, rumors have been circulating about a Treo 90, which has a built-in keyboard but no Springboard slot.
There appear to be some basis for these as CompuSmart.com, a Canadian webstore, now lists the Handspring Treo 90.
Update: The Treo 90 has been removed from CompuSmart's webstore. However, a screenshot of what was there is available.
According to CompuSmart, it will have a color screen, a built-in keyboard, and 16 MB of RAM. Possibly the most surprising thing about this model is that it will have SD slot. There is no mention of a Springboard slot. The Treo 90 is listed at $460 CAD, or $295 US.
The webstore gives no other details and has no pictures.
When Ms. Dubinsky made her original reference to the mystery device, she said only that it would be available before the end of Handspring's current financial quarter, which is over at the end of June. CompuSmart says the Treo 90 will be available on May 29.
Update: PDABuzz has what is says is a picture of the Treo 90 and a few details, including the size.
