I was reading this review of the palmOne Treo 650, and this paragraph jumped out at me:
“Finally, there’s one hardware innovation on the Treo 650 that’s simply genious. They have a button with a green handset icon that launches the phone program and depending on context, dials the phone. Alternatively, they have a red phone icon on a button that hangs up the call. Brilliant!”
I really hope that the author is joking and/or being sarcastic, because this is a feature that has been on every single cell phone that I have ever seen or used!
Seriously, I know that the Treo 600 didn’t have these buttons, but that’s the only phone device I can think of that doesn’t. Does that warrant calling their addition “genious” (sic)?
What’s next? A Treo with NUMBERS you can actually DIAL?
