Treo 610 Reports
Notice PIC has not covered the seemingly rampant rumors about the Treo 610? Why? Well we only publish rumors when the staff here, ourselves believe them to be credible or based on some fact. Truth is the Treo 600 is going to eventually be upgraded, but the current rumors about the 610 being released in March are totally bogus.
Ben Combee heads to PalmSource
Popular PIC and Palm OS Developer personality Ben Combee has left his position at Metrowerks. Ben has now joined PalmSource as a senior Developer Technical Services engineer. Congrats and good luck to Ben!
