Orange confirms the Handspring Treo 600 as part of their line of smartphones
The Treo 600 is a pocket-sized phone that combines voice and data functionality based on a Palm OS platform.

The Treo 600 is the latest Orange Signature phone – giving Orange customers one-touch access to key services, exclusive Orange services, and an Orange look and feel.

Orange and Handspring worked together to refine the hardware and integrate the Orange look and feel, applications and services that bring a unique customer experience to the device.

As an Orange Signature phone, the Treo 600 also features exclusive services for Orange customers such as an innovative function called Orange Backup. Orange Backup allows customers to store their personal and business data – such as contacts and calendar – on the Orange network and restore those details when required. That means that if a customer loses their phone, the information remains secure on the Orange network and can be restored on a new phone. There is also the Orange Update feature which lets customers update their phone with the latest software as well as download and store new applications over the air.

Richard Brennan, Executive Vice-President of Global Brand, Marketing and Products of the Orange Group, said: "The Treo 600 is the latest and one of the most exciting Orange Signature phones to date. It has everything that a business professional needs to get the most out of the working day and ensure they keep up with their social life.

“The Treo 600 will prove attractive to both the individual customer who wants to ensure they stay connected while they’re out of the office, as well as SOHO’s and corporate customers who need to make sure their workforce are fully equipped to make the most out of their working day."

He added: "Once again, Orange is partnering with like-minded companies to ensure our customers are first to benefit from the most innovative products and advanced, easy to use mobile services. Now Orange customers can choose a device with the functionality, text input and size they require as well as the operating system that best suits them – be it Windows or Palm."

Orange also lists the Windows Mobile based smartphone called SPV (Sound, pictures and video) and will release the new Motorola MPx200 by the end of the year.
