Palm Treo Pro

 

Even though the sleek and beautiful touch-screen Palm Treo Pro is essentially a minor update of the 800W, its alluring external aesthetic make it feel like a whole new phone. Like the 800W, Palm does a superior job of putting lipstick on the Windows...

Beautiful aesthetics; Zippy EV-DO Rev. A connections; great voice quality; quality video playback; 3.5mm stereo headphone jack

Not upgradeable to Windows Mobile 6.5; poor camera and video; poor battery life; tightly-packed QWERTY keypad; no direct access keys for camera or music playback

If cool-factor aesthetics aren't a critical issue for you, the less stylish 800W is $100 less than the Pro.

Palm Treo Pro (Sprint)

 

This compact Windows Mobile phone offers good call quality and a nice selection of included software.

The Sprint Palm Treo Pro is a business tool and multimedia device rolled into one. In general we prefer the HTC Touch Pro, which offers a more compelling TouchFLO user interface, better keyboard, and a sharper 3.2-MP camera, but that smart phone costs...

Treo Pro

 

After a few delays, the Palm Treo Pro is now shipping from Sprint (for $200 with a two-year contract, as of 3/5/09). This smart phone will please Windows Mobile fans with its sleek design and its business-friendly features. Sprint customers seeking a...

Sleek design Includes applet to close running programs

Keyboard and display feel cramped Below-average camera

The 2-megapixel camera is mediocre. With no flash, pictures appeared dark and blurry. In outdoor shots, colors looked washed out and images seemed grainy. The camera has a few advanced features, namely 8X digital zoom, brightness and white-balance...

Palm Treo Pro Smart Phone

 

Palm's latest Treo is a sleek and well-connected Windows Mobile Treo, but it's pricey because it lacks carrier support.

Skinny Treo delivers 3G, Wi-Fi and GPS ; Includes applet to close running apps

Gets warm in the hand rather quickly ; No carrier subsidy, so its rather pricey

The Treo Pro has plenty of pluses: Svelte good looks, bundled GPS software, a standard earphone jack, and easy Windows Mobile app shutdown. But the Treo Pro's heat issue worries me--and its high unlocked price tag could turn off anyone whose corporate...

Palm Treo Pro and HP iPaq 910c Business Messenger: Battle of the Black Business Smart Phones

 

The newest Palm Treo and HP iPaq unlocked phones aim to take a bite out of the business phone market. But do they have the chops to do so?

I would definitely recommend the HP to hard-core business users who can benefit from its enterprise software--as long as they can live with its expansion-card limitations. The Treo Pro has plenty of pluses, too: Skinny good looks, bundled GPS software,...

Palm Treo Pro Fronts Handsome Styling, Half-Baked Touch...

 

Until Palm unleashes the JesusTreo (rumored to descend in 2009), this reworked, dolled-up device is as good as it gets for the once-mighty smartphone company.

Trim, light and pocketable. Shortcuts prove beyond useful. Decent 2-MP pics. MicroUSB! Battery lasts almost two full days. 3.5-mm headphone jack. PPT/Excel/Word and PDF-reading, of course. Google Maps AND TeleNav GPS, which offers turn-by-turn...

Menu scrolling is about as fluid as a piece of dolomite. Slippery “obsidian” plastic casing retains more fingerprints than the NSA. Noticeable screen glare. Curved design comprised by bottomside USB/headphone jack that should be recessed more....

Sprint Palm Treo 800w

 

The latest business-friendly Treo packs Wi-Fi, GPS, more memory, and plenty of handy shortcuts.

The Treo 800w isn’t sexy, but it’s a fast and powerful upgrade to the aging 700wx. For those Sprint customers looking for a Windows Mobile device, it’s faster than the Samsung Ace (which doesn’t have GPS) and lighter and cheaper than the HTC Mogul....

Still, plenty of thoughtful design touches abound. There's a side-ported speaker, so you can sit the phone on a conference room table and use the speakerphone without the usual muffled results. The hardware ringer and Wi-Fi switches are a joy to use,...

Svelte for a touch-screen handset. Several thoughtful design touches. Sharp screen resolution. Supports Wi-Fi, HSDPA 3.6, and GPS with turn-by-turn directions

Some performance hiccups. Cramped keyboard

Palm scores big with this shrewdly specified enterprise smartphone, even if the lack of a subsidized, carrier-backed version keeps mainstream users away.

Palm Treo Pro (Sprint)

 

Like most Sprint handsets, the Treo Pro is a dual-band (800/1,900 MHz) CDMA2000 handset with EV-DO Rev A capability. The phone also features built-in Wi-Fi for access to 802.11b/g networks, including ones with WPA or WPA2-PSK encryption; it connected...

Good voice quality. Responsive UI. Smooth video playback

Mediocre reception. Poor battery life. Could use more RAM and a better Web browser. Camera lacks some basic features

This Treo Pro is a solid, responsive handset for business customers who need Windows Mobile compatibility. But anyone else is probably better off waiting to see how the highly anticipated Palm Pre stacks up.

Palm Treo 800w

 

The 2.5-inch display's increased resolution—now 320 by 320 pixels—looks sharp. Though a huge improvement over the 240-by-240-pixel screen that plagued earlier Windows Mobile Treos, it's still not standard size—most Windows Mobile handsets are actually...

Superb voice quality. High-resolution LCD. Integrates Wi-Fi and GPS radios. Plenty of bundled software

Poor battery life. Lacks enough horsepower for Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. Finicky touch screen. Flimsy stylus

Palm finally brings its Windows Mobile–based Treo line up to spec, but its poor battery life and obstinate touch screen are letdowns.
