We’ve all been there. Thankfully, the good folks at Sprint know that. Meet the PCS Vision-serviced Treo 600, made by Handspring, which is so nifty that it deserves a place on every hard-working student’s holiday wish list.
Less than five inches long and weighing under a half-pound, the gadget features a full (though understandably tiny) QWERTY keyboard, full-color screen, camera with photo-mail capability and an Internet browser. Like PDAs, it is navigated by a stylus. It looks like a phone, but acts almost like a laptop.
With this lightning-in-a-bottle technology, you can check your e-mail lying down, read The Crimson online from I-95 and snap photos of your friends in compromising positions. All this can be yours for $599.99, though there are cheaper models available. The Treo, like many other Sprint phones, offers incentive-based savings of up to $150 for the holiday season.
