PalmAddict interviews Ed Colligan, President, palmOne
Peter J. Arts interviews Ed Colligan for the PalmAddict Blog. The Treo 650 is around the corner, the Treo 600 is not going away, and the T5 is not boring - but fills a niche. A small quote, follow the link below for the full interview:

PJA: OK…the T600 has been out for a full year. In that time, your various carriers have done their own ads for it, but the only p1 ads were in trade papers, and in airport terminals. As of last week, there were full-page ads in many national, ‘end-user’ magazines, like Newsweek. Why start pushing the T600 to the consumer market at this particular stage?

EC: Right. What you need to understand is that the Treo 600 is not going away. It is a great product, and will stay as an important part of our Treo Family.

PJA: Ah! So the stories of a multi-product Treo Family are fact, and not just marketing hype?

EC: Absolutely.

PJA: Ed, I know you can’t discuss the details of the next-gen Treo, but you can talk about the brand-new T5. I don’t know if you’ve been looking at the various Palm-centric blogs and sites…but, there is a lot of aggravation that the T5 doesn’t have WiFi. Consistent rumor also says that the next-gen Treo won’t have WiFi. What gives? Doesn’t p1 consider WiFi important?

EC: Yes; WiFi is important, but our focus is on the WAN in the Enterprise, and the T5 reflects what that market is demanding from us, in terms of a solution. You know that we do have a WiFi device: the Tungsten C?

PJA: Good product.

EC: It’s a great product. Powerful, great screen, keyboard. It’s only a moderate seller. We have to look at how our existing products are being embraced by the market before we continue to expand in any specific direction. Like the Treo 600, the T5 is the ‘first step’ in creating a solution that we believe is needed in the marketplace. WiFi is part of our ongoing plans…but was never intended for the T5.
