24 Joins Treo Revolution

At CES in Las Vegas a couple of weeks ago I made the prediction that we wouldn’t have to wait long before our Treo makes an appearance in a James Bond movie as I’m sure that like me ‘Q’ would be impressed with everything that he can add to it – for example, a laser in the camera lens, a stun gun in the multi-connector slot, a Taser in the SD slot and some sleeping gas in the antenna might make some nice addtions for ‘special operations’…

We know that there’s a smartphone for the NSA that closely resembles our Treo already in production and it should therefore not be surprising that the first new season episode of the hit series “24” (images below) should find Jack Bauer toting a Sprint Treo 650 to take pictures of some bad guys and wirelessly send these back to headquarters for analysis.  I personally would have added a JX10 to Jack’s kit but that may be for another episode…

[Thanks a lot for the tip and images Steffen.]

Treonauts are always doing ‘special operations’

Don't forget he also BLEW up the terrorists remotely from the TREO and it did a soft reset.

I love it!

I have used the CTU ringtone on my Treo since day 1. I love 24 and my Treo. Now that they're together, it's one great love triangle!

I've seen the 650 by Sprint used openly with up close shots on CSI: New York about 4 episodes ago. They used it to send crime photos back to the lab. One of the criminalist also had a call come thru on the phone with a ringtone that was used in the commercial that followed to promote a new song by some rock group. They kept doing closeups of the phone so that you could see the Treo wording and Sprint wording as well as the keypad.

I've also seen Sydney carrying and using the Treo 650 in an episode Alias in October or September of 2005.

The 650 is definitely more popular on tv than the other smartphones.

I also remember an episode of CSI were they found a TREO in the bottom of a pool and took it apart fanned it dry with a blow dryer and it turned on, they then connected it to computer and got all the contact info of of it. IT WAS AMAZING!

As for the CTU Ringtone, here you all go:

Awesome entry! I am a big fan of 24 and have always tried to guess at which model the characters' have in the show (nerdy, huh?) Now, I have the phone that JACK BAUER has used! <3 I hope he continues to use the Treo as the season progresses!

The West Wing has also been using the Treo 650. Specifically, Josh Lyman, during his campaign for Santos. You can see him using it on almost every show.

I've seen Jason Gideon, the head honcho, using a Treo on CBS's Criminal Minds, and Alice used one to converse with her former girlfriend, Dana, whilst she was also trying to keep up with her (they were both in their respective vehicles) on Showtime's The L Word.

I just want to inform everyone who cares that Jack Bauer stopped using the Treo since that one episode. Anyone else notice his *amazing* zoom capability his Treo had? Yeah yeah...it's just a show. Man, just when I thought I was using Jack Bauer phone...

Treonauts always want to be Jack Bauer...

How do you convert the codes into a Treo acceptable format?

There's a 24 mobile game on iplay.com/24 but it won't work on my Treo. Does anyone know if the 24 mobile game is available for Treo anywhere else? Thanks!
