Sprint Offers Camera-less Treo 600

Sometimes it pays to wait. Sprint just released the camera-less version of the Treo 600. As I recently posted, for many professionals and especially lawyers, camera phones can be more of a liability than an asset if you need/want to take your cell phone everywhere.

Rather than repeat all the details, I'll direct you to the various news stories and press release:

TreoCentral: "It's official: Sprint announces camera-less Treo 600"

PalmInfocenter: "Sprint Officially Offers Camera-less Treo 600"

Sprint's Press Release: "Sprint Addresses Corporate Security Concerns With Nationwide Availability of Non-Camera Sprint PCS Vision(SM) Smart Device Treo(TM) 600 by palmOne" (and winner of the longest PR title of the year award!)

No word yet from other major wireless carriers on the camera-less version. It's rumored Verizon will offer the updated Treo 610. I'll temper it by pointing out details are very scarce on this one, and I'd wager it'll be the camera-only version, at least for a while.
