New and Noteworthy: Treo 600 review; Wi-Fi arrest highlights security dangers; more

Treo 600 review infoSync World has a positively glowing article about Handspring's final pre-palmOne handheld, the Treo 600: "Anthony Newman has spent some time with Handspring's final handheld, and finds that it's the closest thing yet to a perfect convergence device. It's incredibly difficult to avoid using superlative terms of affection when discussing the Treo 600: words like 'love' and 'perfect' have a way of creeping in, which is a tribute to just how good a job the team at Handspring did on this, their final pre-palmOne handheld."

The "Bizarro" Dell DJ iPod knock-off Fortune compares the new Dell DJ to Superman's (the iPod's) nemesis Bizarro: "Which leads us into a discussion of Dell's new Bizarro version of Apple's iPod, called the Dell Digital Jukebox Music Player, or Dell DJ for short. Coming from the square world of Dell instead of the hip world of Apple, it's bigger, heavier, and clunkier than Apple's sleek, suave, elegant iPod, which arrived on the scene two years ago and quickly became the most popular portable digital music player on our home planet, Earth. Even worse, the Musicmatch-backed Dell Music Store is the clumsy, Bizarro counterpart to Apple's brilliant iTunes." More. Music Store.
