Chapter 1. Meet Your Treo > The Treo Device Family

The Treo Device Family

The Treo product lineup currently consists of two models, the Treo 600 and Treo 650. The devices look a lot alike but there are some important differences you need to know. Because the devices are so similar, in many ways you can think of this book as covering both devices. However, the Treo 650 includes a few important changes and new features that are examined in detail as you work through the book. If you're reading this with a Treo 600 in your hand, just understand that the book is somewhat slanted toward the 650 because it's the newer model. Even so, much of the Treo experience is similar for both devices. Now it's time to learn more about these two devices!

The Treo 600 is one of Palm's first smartphones, and serves as a PDA, mobile phone, digital camera, email client, and Web browser, among other things. The Treo 600 is available in both Global System for Mobile Communications (GSM)/General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) and Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA) models through a variety of different wireless service providers. The Treo 600 includes a color screen (160×160), read-only support for Office documents, a digital camera, and a built-in QWERTY keyboard. As nice as the Treo 600 is, however, there are a few drawbacks. For one, if your device loses power, your data gets lost. This type of memory, known as volatile memory, can be a real pain if you forget to back up your device and the battery runs dry. Speaking of the battery, it isn't removable in the Treo 600, so there's no way to replace it or carry an extra.
