"The TREO. trademark is used by Palm in Sweden and Denmark with the express consent of Pfizer and its affiliated companies."
Grabbing sieht anders aus. ;)

Fixed my heading. Now the story is even funnier.

Treo means headache in sewdish ...

I guess a Swede needs to shed some light here:

Treo is a very well known trademark in Sweden. It is an aspirin. Initially developed by Leo Pharmaceuticals in Lund, Sweden. Later Leo was acquired by Pharmacia and then Pharmacia was acquired by Pfizer. I guess that Pharmacia registered the domain some ten years ago.

And headache in Swedish is not Treo, it is "huvudvärk".

But it is quite funny nevertheless.

So there's no real connection between smartphone users and Viagra? ;-)
