Palm to launch mid-range Treo smartphones?
Analysts from Caris & Co. have released
a statement indicating that there is good reason to believe Palm will be
unveiling a smaller, more affordable Treo smartphones in the second half of
2006. Many PDA smartphones, although looking pretty neat, remain unattainable
due to their premium prices, however these forecasted models are expected to
have a much more reasonable retail price somewhere around $200 (about £115). There
is no further information on these new Treos, nor is there much detail of how
these analysts come up with their predictions; I just hope that it involves
more bone casting and tea leaves than poring over spreadsheets and technical
readouts. A long awaited higher end Treo is also due out in the second half of
2006 and features the Windows Mobile operating system.
