Got A Treo?
It’s a new forum for all of us who own the Treo Smartphone. Jeremy gives us a rundown on what got him started on his blog:
Many people have asked where the idea came from. Well, first I have a Treo and really like it. If anyone is looking for a smartphone, I highly recommend you check the Treo out. The passion is there, and for me that’s a critical component. The thing that set me over the top though, was really LinuxWorld Boston, where LQ was in the .org Pavilion. The Platinum Sponsor of the show was none other than PalmSource (promoting their Linux Access Platform). With rumors that Palm may also be working on a Linux platform, it seems clear that Linux is the future platform (or at least one of the platforms) for the Treo.
There’s more information on the blog on the genesis of the site.
Now, I know exactly what you are thinking, “why on earth should I go there, even though it has downloads as well and will no doubt grow, when there are a shed-load of similar sites all over the web?” Well, Mr Smarty Pants, that’s a fair question. And I suppose it deserves an answer, despite my wanting to slap you with a kipper.
Firstly, the site is the second (third) in the xQuestions.org series. This means that you will have a site that will be extremely unlikely to go coporate, won’t censor your opinion but still be well moderated and will also have a very good sense of community. These sites attract knowledgeable, intelligent, good looking people who won’t jump all over your opinion. And if they do the mods will jump all over them.
Secondly, I’m telling you that if you have a Treo and want to join a forum, go there. And if that’s not reason enough, I don’t know what is.
The site is in it’s infancy right now, so now is a great time to join up – you get the chance to offer your opinion on the site itself and on what it should look like. Obviously, jeremy won’t act on every suggestion, but he will read and consider them.
So go now to TreoQuestions.org. And don’t forget your Treo.
