Treo Updater 1.0 available
Handspring today released the long awaited Flash update for early production Treos. The update fixes battery life problems and more.
Even though the Treo doesn't have a Flash ROM, the flash memory for the radio is still accessible and thus this 3 MB download will take advantage of that memory location.
THIS UPDATE WILL ERASE ALL DATA ON THE TREO
