Handspring Releases Treo GPRS Upgrade Overseas
Aug 31, 2002, 3:20 PM by (staff)
The handheld maker has released a GPRS upgrade for Treo owners in New Zealand and Singapore. Handspring has promised that a similar upgrade would be available worldwide, but says the current version is designed only for those specific markets. Handspring said that it won't support customers outside of New Zealand and Singapore that download the software and encounter problems. There is also no way to undo the upgrade, the company said. The installer program for the upgrade is designed to check for a SIM card that indicates that the device has service from a carrier in the selected region. Handspring acknowledged that there are ways of circumventing that process.
