Treo 680 users need to install this patch

For weeks Palm support has danced around battery performance issues with the new Treo 680. Now it turns out that the camera sucks the battery dry in less than a day — even if the device is on standby.

Palm has identified that the Treo 680 device can experience reduced battery life when the camera is used. The camera may continue to draw power from the battery when the device is in standby mode. Treo 680 users should install the Treo 680 Camera Update to address this issue.

Also note that the battery needs to be calibrated by several full charge/discharge cycles.

Finde ich nicht. Der Artikel ist zwar scharf im Ton, aber nicht unsachlich. Wenn eine Firma wie Palm bewusst ein fehlerhaftes Produkt auf den Markt bringt, dann den Kunden gegenüber Unwissenheit vortäuscht und sie hinhält, ist deutliche Kritik angebracht.
