Handspring shows off a new pair of Treos

CNet: The Mountain View, Calif.-based device maker began selling the Treo 270 and Treo 90 on its Web site Monday. As previously reported, the Treo 270 is similar to the already available Treo 180, which is a combination cell phone and organizer, and also boasts a color display. The device comes with 16MB of memory and costs $499 ($100 less than Handspring previously announced) and includes a one-year service contract from cell phone network operators Cingular Wireless or VoiceStream Wireless.

My spin: Handspring’s new Treo devices are pretty good from what I can tell. I’m a bit dissapointed that Handspring will phase out their Springboard Modules in favor of the more popular Secure Digital expansion cards. I guess we should scoop up all the modules we can (those of use who have Handspring Visors). I also wonder how developers who have invested time and money in making modules feel?
