Palm Treo Gets Cameo in Snakes on a Plane

by Reads (11,526)

In the upcoming thriller Snakes on a Plane, Palm’s Treo 650 makes a small but pivotal appearance. Palm has done well getting Hollywood to feature its products, as Snakes is just the latest in a long string of successes.

Snakes on a Plane?

If you’ve seen the previews, the movies looks like a mix of Anaconda and Flightplan. The official synopsis reads like this:

Samuel L. Jackson stars in the intense action feature Snakes on a Plane from director David Ellis (Final Destination 2, Cellular). Jackson plays an FBI agent who is escorting a witness on a flight from Hawaii to Los Angeles when an assassin releases hundreds of deadly snakes on a commercial airplane in order to eliminate the witness. The FBI agent, along with a rookie pilot, frightened crew and passengers must then band together in a desperate attempt to survive.

Does the Treo 650 Save the Day?

While we can’t tell you exactly how the Treo 650 comes into play, it does have a small but critical role though. Here’s a still from the movie where actress Rachel Blanchard, playing the role of Mercedes uses the Treo.
