It beams, too

Beaming facts

  • With built-in infrared (IR) your smartphone can beam about a meter away from another IR device.

  • Your smartphone uses slightly more power when its ability to receive beamed info is turned on. Turn beaming off when you're not using it: Applications > Prefs > Power. (Prefs > General on the Treo 600 smartphone).

  • You can sync with your laptop by using IR when you don't have a cable, provided your laptop has IR capabilities. Go to Applications > HotSync and select IR to a PC/Handheld from the pick list beneath the icon.

  • You can beam whole categories of things, like calendars or contact lists.

  • The device you beam to must have at least twice as much free memory as the item you beam.


With a phone, Internet browsing, messaging, email, and more, most Treo smartphone users simply forget about beaming. Yet beaming adds an extra dimension to your communications. You can beam information to any handheld, phone, or laptop that also has built-in infrared capabilities, a handy feature at events such as meetings or lunches, or for spouses who both have smartphones.
