Should the Handspring Treo 180 be seen as a mobile phone with the functions of a Palm OS® handheld? Or should it be seen as a Palm OS® handheld with mobile phone communication capabilities? With the marketing strategy of “Talk, Organize, Connect”, Handspring would like their Treo to be look upon as a mobile phone first. Hence, the mobile phone function of the Handspring Treo 180 was first examined, followed by its organizer function.
