Current owners of a Palm Treo 600 or a Treo 650 are being awarded for their mishaps and frustrations with a small amount of money that Palm Inc. has agreed to pay out. The original lawsuit claimed that both the Treo 600 and the 650 smartphones were ridden with defects, had unacceptable failure rates and that Palm misrepresented the devices. In short, Palm decided that entering a settlement would be the best course of action instead of going to court. A small chart from the Final Summary is included below with details on the specific rebate amounts.
In order to qualify for a rebate, Palm Inc. has agreed that anyone who experienced two or more repairs or replacements in lieu of repair and who purchased a new Palm smartphone within a defined period of time can qualify if you send in the proper documentation. The Palza Settlement website has more details to offer concerning the class action lawsuit as well as the forms necessary in order to benefit from the deal.
