    Lots of things to ponder.

    Is no camera for a lower cost 600, say a 601 ?

    Is no camera just part of many changes for the Treo 610 ?

    and if the device is to be "more modular" does that mean a user
    interchangeable/replaceable battery?

    IF the Verizon folks are not placing a major order they are making a major
    mistake. Finally, someone makes a combination phone and pda without the toy
    feature. Methinks it will be like the mini-ipod. People think it won't sell,
    then it hits the market and sells like crazy.

    Wait a while. They'll be down in the $200-300 range soon.

    In a year or two when prices are down (like the Palm III is now), the
    then extent $600 Treos will be what folks want. (640 x 480 screen); 64
    Meg Ram, 3 Megapixel camera, WiMax internet, etc.

    Pondering on the nomenclature is a mug's game, until it's officially
    announced.

    >Is no camera just part of many changes for the Treo 610 ?


    Op cit.

    >interchangeable/replaceable battery?


    That was fervently suggested by many at the conference, with a poker faced
    response from PalmOne. Let them play their card close to their chest; they
    know how to make a sellable product.
