Over the last few weeks, Brighthand and Palm, Inc. have been holding a contest in which the prize was a limited edition version of the Treo 650, and now a winner has been chosen.
To enter the contest, people were asked to answer the question: “A Black Tie Treo 650 goes best with…”
Over 500 entries were submitted before the deadline and the Brighthand editorial staff chose a group of finalists.Then the general public was asked to vote on these.
The winner by a wide margin was Roderick Plemmons from Florida, who said that the Black Tie Treo 650 goes best with “everything but water.”
Mr. Plemmons will be receiving his new smartphone shortly.
More About the Black Tie Treo
As part of its Tenth Anniversary Celebration this year, Palm, Inc. released a special version of its Treo 650 smartphone.
This features a chrome frame around its screen and a black casing. It also bears the Palm brand, instead of the palmOne brand as other Treo 650s do.
This is an unlocked GSM/GPRS device, and can therefore be used with virtually any wireless carrier that uses this standard.
This smartphone typically sells for $600.
More information on the Black Tie Treo 650 can be found on Palm’s web site.
