Palm Treo 700WX Smartphone - Sprint (CDMA, Bluetooth, 1.3MP, 128MB, SDIO/MMC/SD)

 

In late 2006, Palm's Treo 700w received a quiet upgrade to the 700wx, which has the same design and runs the same OS but contains enhancements under the hood. Most notable is the RAM upgrade: With 48MB after a hard reset, the 700wx (available on the...

Includes a fantastic music player ; Camera takes impressive shots

Talk-time battery life is poor ; Keys are stiff and too close together

The 700wx is physically identical to the already-impressive Treo 700w, but adds some worthy upgrades under the hood.

Palm Treo 650 Smart Phone

 

The Treo 650 from Sprint combines the venerable Palm operating system with a nicely designed handset that includes a fairly usable QWERTY keyboard and a vibrant display. It's not perfect--some design quirks and a high price are among its drawbacks--but...

Vibrant 2.5-inch display

Small keys can be hard to use for typing Small amount of accessible memory

Finally, there's the price. Our test unit, from Sprint, sells for $500 (as of April 7, 2006, with a two-year contract). That means the Treo 650 carries roughly the same price tag as a value-priced desktop PC. Carrier rebates bring that price down a...

Palm Treo 650 (Verizon Wireless) review:

 

Intro When we made our wish list for the successor to the well-received Treo 600 , it was to keep the great design but add several missing features. Fortunately, that's precisely what PalmOne did with its new Treo 650. This model offers a...

The Palm Treo 650 benefits from an improved display and keyboard, integrated Bluetooth, and a speakerphone. The world phone also has a 312MHz processor, Palm OS 5.4, multimedia, and e-mail support.

Sadly, the Palm Treo 650 has meager integrated memory, no built-in Wi-Fi, and a cumbersome Bluetooth setup. Also, the Treo 650 suffers from average audio quality, a low-resolution camera, a nonstandard headphone jack, and no analog roaming.

Though it has its shortcomings, the PalmOne Treo 650 offers solid performance and adds some key features to maintain its reign as smart-phone leader.

palmOne Treo 650 (Verizon)

 

It's the best phone of the three Treo 650s, but data options are disappointing.

Excellent voice quality. Loud speakerphone.

No EV-DO. Expensive data plan.

palmOne Treo 650 (Cingular/GSM)

 

Our Editor's Choice for phone/e-mail devices, the PalmOne Treo 650, performs better on Cingular's network than on Sprint's, but you'll pay more for the added speed.

Better battery life than the Sprint Treo 650. International voice and data roaming. Fast EDGE modem.

Service plan costs more than Sprint Treo 650. No dial-up networking—yet.

Treo 650

 

Sharper, faster, brighter, better. PalmOne's Treo 650 is the smart phone to own.

Sharp and bright display Faster processor• More comfortable keyboard• Built-in Bluetooth• Works with Microsoft Exchange

No Wi-Fi Low-resolution camera• Still pretty thick

First (official) look at the Treo 650

 

Expect loads more in the coming days, but for right now TreoCentral has what is more or less the first hands-on review of the new Treo 650 (we probably shouldn't count that guy who said he got to play with one at a Sprint store a few weeks back). ...

palmOne Treo 650 (Sprint)

 

The new Bluetooth functionality is a welcome addition, allowing users to sync with Bluetooth-capable PCs and Macs and to connect to wireless Bluetooth headsets, which are becoming a huge part of the hands-free landscape. You can't, however, use the...

Many improvements over the excellent Treo 600, including high res screen, improved camera, removable battery, Bluetooth. Non-volatile memory can save your PDA data even if the battery runs out

Could use a little more RAM as well as Wi-Fi. Lackluster speakerphone performance

If your business currently supports Treo 600s or other palmOne PDAs for your mobile workforce, or if you finally are giving in and buying a smartphone, the Treo 650 is a compelling upgrade that makes it a must buy for all but the most bleeding-edge...
