Treo 600 receives PC Magazine 'Technical Excellence' award
The Treo 600 smartphone from palmOne has received PC Magazine's Technical Excellence award in the Mobile Device category. Calling the Treo 600 smartphone a "tour de force," the magazine praised the device for breaking new ground and raising the bar in the smartphone category of products. The Treo 600 smartphone also was named a finalist for the Best of COMDEX award in the Mobile Device category. The product is available with service plans from Sprint PCS, Cingular Wireless and AT&T.

PC Magazine said that not only is the Treo 600 smartphone "sleeker than its predecessors, its QWERTY keyboard, SD slot, no-flip design, Palm OS, and speakerphone strike the right balance between familiarity and cutting-edge features. The built-in VGA camera is the latest gotta-have-it feature in the Treo 600, and the little stunner is available on both GSM/GPRS and CDMA networks."

The Treo 600 smartphone combines a world-class phone, a Palm OS 5-based organizer, messaging, email, and web-browsing capabilities into a bar phone form factor. The device's keyboard design makes dialing the phone and sending messages and email easier than before, while the five-way navigation system makes one-handed use a snap.

"The Treo 600 delivers the form and functionality customers are seeking from a smartphone, and we are thrilled to be recognized for our efforts by PC Magazine," said Joe Sipher, vice president of product and carrier marketing for palmOne.

Additional features include the new Blazer Web Browser that includes support for JavaScript and frames, an expansion slot for third-party SD Card and MultiMediaCard solutions, and a built-in VGA camera for taking and sending pictures and setting up picture caller ID.
