Palm has given TreoCentral a Black Tie Treo to give away! To enter, simply call us up at 800-557-6819 x222 and tell us: How would your favorite fictional character use a Black Tie Treo 650?. The deadline for entry is midnight EST, Sept. 25th. The winner will receive the Limited Edition Black Tie Treo (more information here.
Two runners-up will win a Palm Compact Wireless headset. So get dialing! All three winners will have their entries played on the air. (Yes, you can also email in your entry to [email protected] - but how is that fun?)
The Treo 700wx is now available. A bit more on that below. For now, see TreoCentral's first look. I'll have a review up on Wednesday, possibly Tuesday (I'm just one man!).
Ed Colligan supported requiring California drivers to use handsfree kits while driving. Governor Arnold "Jingle all the way to da choppah!" has yet to sign the bill as of this writing.
Yahoo has released Yahoo Go for Windows Mobile devices (among a handful of others). Dieter was mightily impressed with how it automatically set up Yahoo's mail in Outlook Mobile - but it does a bunch of other things too. If you're using a 700w or a 700wx and use Yahoo at all you really ought to give it a try.
Annie Latham's Talkin' Treo column points us to to a couple of non-Treo news items. The Blackberry Pearl is coming out soon, the Motorola Q finally got its push email update, and we slid right over the Nokia e62, but that's on the way too.
Blackberry Connect is finally out of beta for Cingulair Treo 650 users.
Finally, there's this story about the need to erase your data fully before selling you phone. Fully. Check out the Zero Out Reset article in our wiki.
Please email us your comments at [email protected] . You can also call in comments at 800-557-6819 x222 to leave us audio comments. Finally, discuss the TreoCast in our discussion forums.
The deadline for the Black Tie Treo Contest, once again, is Sept. 25th. So call.
Also: we hit the #5 gadget podcast last week - Subscribe to iTunes and push up our numbers, hey?
...and I'm not posting a picture of me with my franken-pop filter. We're all better off.
Here's a recap of our disucssion of the 700wx. Be sure to read our first look (with video) and watch for a full review on Wednesday.
Yes. I've owned nearly every darn Treo ever released.
We talked a little bit about the Palm GPS Navigator Smartphone Edition 2 (TomTom6). It's a great kit and a great deal. The kit includes:
At $299.95 it's a great deal - and it's compatible with the 650, 700p, 700w, and 700wx.
Only a few days left in the wiki contest! Get details here.
One bit I forgot to mention in the TreoCast is that we updated the version of vBulletin that runs our boards. We got a lot of help from the guy behind Transverse Styles. Check him out - good designer. :-)
There's a ton of great information in the Treo 700w/wx forums. I'm specifically trying to answer questions in this thread.
Mike points out What do to with old Treos - a good thread for those of you upgrading.
Special thanks to Palm for donating the Limited Edition Black Tie Treo 650 for our giveaway!
