Handspring warns of Treo holdup

Handspring warns of Treo holdup – Tech News – ::: Turns out that the Treo won’t show up on the web until next month and on retail shelves until March. But give credit to Dubinsky and crowd for making a “bet the company” wager on the Treo… they indicated in yesterday afternoon’s conference call that they’ll be moving away from the traditional Visor and increasingly towards the Treo (and other devices like it). Key to their success will be their ability to get carriers to subsidize the cost of the devices (or at least underwrite the costs to a degree); at $399 the Treo is a good deal – but at $100 or $150, it’ll be nearly irresistable.
