The portable 1980s

What’s better than a Treo? Why, naturally, a faster Treo with higher resolution! I’ll write up a full review of the Treo 680 in a few weeks here, but this morning I’m a little disappointed with the way in which the Bliss Intellivision emulator and the Apple II emulator both failed to work properly on my new Treo.

But I’m sure we’ll get that straightened out sooner or later, the main thing is that the keyboard is more amenable for note typing, the phone is a little flaky but works fine and the ebooks look better than ever. It was a great move to stick with SD instead of mini-SD for this smartphone, which means that I can use it happily until someone comes out with a Wi-fi smartphone with equivalent functionality on Palm or some Linux.
