My Treo 600 is dying, the Option, Shift, 0, Spacebar, Menu, Return and Backspace keys no longer work. The Treo 700p is supposedly coming in a month or two, so the timing is less than ideal for something like this (buying a 600 or 650 now makes no sense).
Anyone have an old Sprint Treo 600 lying around they’d like to loan me for a couple months? 🙂
UPDATE: a very generous Tasks Pro™ customer is sending me a loaner – thanks David!
I would let you have my old one but it is GSM. There maybe one or two around my office, I will let you know.
As bad as you own me, you’ll pry mine from my cold, dead fingers. 😉
Dude, that [b]sucks[/b]. How long has it lasted for you? I’m wondering if I’m going to be able to hold out on getting a 700p myself.
hey alex i have an old treo you can use, i don’t use it, only thing is that when talking you can only hear the other person when using speakerphone. if that isn’t annoying you can have it. its a treo 600
Get a 700W. It’s great!
Marty – thanks, I’ve e-mailed you.
Barnyard – 2 problems with that:
1. I’m on Sprint, not Verizon
2. I use a Mac as my primary machine
I’ll wait for the 700p.
Sheesh, there’s your problem.
Reports are quite mixed on the 700w. I could really care less what OS my smartphone runs as long as it does it well. I’ve done some UI design for enterprise PocketPC apps and I’ve been really disapointed in the PocketPC UI to date. I hope it improves.
So when do we start the “Hey, Chris has never had a Treo and would give his right leg for a 700w” donation drive?
I’ve never been a “Palm guy”. Their interface always seemed… I don’t know how to describe it. Maybe juvenile.
The Windows Mobile interface is more familiar to those who use Windows on a regular basis. Hey, I get to my programs from the start menu on my desktop, that’s probably where I get to them on my smartphone too. I’ve never used a phone with Windows Mobile on it, but I’ve owned several different PocketPCs over the years, and MS has always made great improvements between versions.
Still, I would certainly suspect that Palm would be more eager to get Mac users working with their new model than Microsoft would be… You just can’t deny the truth.
[…] When my Treo 600 went down, I used the A900 as my primary phone for a little while. I really like the form factor of the A900, and I haven’t used a normal cell phone on a regular basis for years. […]
