Good Review on the Treo 600

Getting back to ultimate smartphones, here's a new and fairly balanced review of the Handspring Treo 600 from TechTV.

What I like is that in the GSM version, somebody got it right and added all four GSM frequencies (850 MHz, 900 MHz, 1,800 MHz, and 1,900 MHz), so it's a true "world phone". Granted GSM coverage in the U.S. is still spotty, but it is improving as carriers build out the GSM network here.

I've said it before, and the review author agrees, that the Treo 600 isn't without some drawbacks. However, it's one the best smartphones currently available in my opinion.
