    What's a Treo? Seriously!

    Advertisement



    Okay, a bit of a background on me.

    I used to work for Handspring, which was formerly Palm, and then came back into the Palm fold ... don't ask.

    Anyways, I was there when the first Treo came out, an ugly flip-phone type thing, the 300 or 360, whatever it was, it was fugly. When the 600 came out, I was no longer with the company, but I could see they were finally paking progress ... but as per usual, innovation failed Handsp... er Palm.

    Enter, the BlackBerry Pearl! Wow! What a difference. RIM, a player in the corporate space for years blasting their way into the consumer space, giving Handpsr... er Palm, a kick between the legs. Nice! Good for the consumer!

    I think RIM gets what Palm doesn't – Innovation. People want bleeding edge, but in a sense that is practical. I know that sounds like an oxymoron, but so are most consumers. They don't know what they want, but they want the bestest, right away!

    Anyways, the Pearl is a wonderful device that would satisfy the typical corporate nerd and the average teen in highschool looking to communicate with other hedonistic types in their inner circle – good stuff for the masses.

    I guess what I am saying is, what most of you already know, and I am just late to the party understanding, the BlackBerry Pearl is good ****! Get it and thank me later. I have seen the light! And it is a small, pearl-like button in the middle of my mobile phone!

    Well I had 3 Treo 600's and 2 650's. They all sucked I actually just kept getting them as replacements with sprint. After the screens kept going out I finally just gave my last 650 replacement to my brother and entered the GSM world. I'm thankful I did. A few years later and I now enjoy my Pearl and have yet to have any major problems with it besides some of the stuff that a normal battery pull will fix.

    Treo's are good for skeet shooting. I used about 400 of them for skeet practice a couple years ago. After each one died and the company I worked for replaced them, I kept them in a box. Then as hunting season approached, I asked my boss what he wanted done with them and he said throw them all away, so that night my buddy and I went out back of his farm and zero'd in a couple new scopes using them as nice 200 yard targets and then the rest we used different handguns and shotguns on.
