Orange are on a launch frenzie at the moment. Today they’re announcing the launch of the Handspring Treo 600, with the new re-branded name of the “Orange Treo 600”. The Treo will sit in the Orange Signature device range, to add to the SPV and the recently announced Motorola MPx200.
Although this is not an MS-based handset, it’s worth noting as a new release from Orange. Handspring’s Treo is a marketted as a “next-generation smartphone”, and it’ll be launched very soon. Don’t forget that in November the C200 (E200/SPV2) should be poking it’s head out of the Orange duvet, plus the Motorola MPx200 will be appearing soon too, so if you wanna keep MS Smartphone friendly, keep an eye out for those! :)
The Treo has a fully integrated QWERTY keyboard, a large colour touch screen and stylus, a built in camera and will be complete with a host of Orange services. It uses the some dodgey Palm Operating System or other… ;)
