  1. Treo 680 updates : version 1.12 vs 2.12 ????


    Hello all,

    three weeks ago I've upgraded my unlocked GSM Treo 680 with this patch :
    http://www.palm.com/us/support/downl...lockedgsm.html

    Today, I discover this on the Palm web site :
    http://kb.palm.com/SRVS/CGI-BIN/WEBC...Case=Obj(11152)
    (in case of wrapped URL : http://tinyurl.com/26uhco)

    The description of both updates is the same :

    ---------
    * Corporate email as it arrives¹ – Have your corporate email
    delivered to you with Microsoft® Direct Push Technology. Accept or
    decline meeting invites and access your company directory on the go.
    * Power saving enhancements – Helps conserve battery life with
    improved power management and updated default system power preferences.
    * Supports larger expansion cards – Supports up to 4GB SD expansion
    cards (including the SDHC format), sold separately.
    * Enhanced ringtone support – MP3 and other sound files purchased
    from the web or sent from friends can now be set as ringtones and alerts
    (formats: MP3, AAC, AAC+, MIDI, WAV, and AMR). ²
    * Three updates in one – This update incorporates three previously
    released software updates: Treo 680 Camera Update (January 2007), Treo
    680 Security Patch (May 2007), and Treo 680 Unlocked GSM smartphone SMS
    Update (July 2007).
    ---------

    only the version number is different !

    Is there any differences between the two ?

    Thanks in advance,

    Charly

    Look at the tops of the pages. One is US/Canada and the other is
    Europe.

    Look at the images where you check the ROM version, if it's the same*, you
    won't need it.

    And the regions are different too. One is for the US and the other is for
    Europe.

    Wouah !!! I did not see that. Btw, at the time of my upgrade only the
    US/Canada version was proposed (I guess ! I did not see the European one...)

    So, This will slightly change my question : what are the differences
    between the US/Canada and Europe versions ???? ;-)

    I have upgraded my French Treo with the american update. Well, so far
    the phone works OK and battery life is improved (almost doubled the
    battery life). Should I consider applying the European update ?

    TIA

    Really? Wow. That's quite some improvement. Did you have the battery
    update?

    > Should I consider applying the European update ?


    Yes; you probably should. I don't know how fussy Palm are with the
    warranty, but if your French Treo had a problem and you returned it, they
    _could_ get awkward with you.

    So far I've found that the least reliable application on the 680 appears to
    be the Bluetooth keyboard driver. I've had a few crashes using this and one
    using the 'phone / contacts application.

    Charlie has just decided that she wants a Centro...
