Palm Treo 680 review:

 

Palm Treo 680

The Palm Treo 680 features a sleeker design; integrated Bluetooth with the ability to use it as a wireless modem; more user-accessible memory; and e-mail capabilities. It also offers a bright touch screen and productivity tools and is easy to use.

The smart phone doesn't have integrated Wi-Fi nor does it support Palm's Wi-Fi card or voice dialing. What's more, the VGA camera is disappointing, the QWERTY keyboard is a bit cramped, and the speakerphone quality is a bit scratchy.

With a user-friendly interface, decent performance, and an affordable price point, the Palm Treo 680 is a good smart phone for the first-time buyer or for mobile users looking to be more productive on the road; we just wish it had a better camera and...

Palm Treo 680

 

Palm's latest smartphone will appeal to existing Palm users, but it still lags behind the Windows smartphone pack by a pretty clear margin.

Full QWERTY keyboard, Simple lock/unlock procedure, Quad-band GSM, SD card support

Sluggish performance, Audio quality could be better, Physical dialling pad is tiny, Awful VGA camera

Palm Treo 680

 

The Palm Treo 680 is just a tiny bit better than the 650—which is either a plus or a minus, depending on who you are.

More memory than Treo 650. Still very easy to use.

Lacks high-speed data, stereo Bluetooth, multitasking, and other common modern features. Not a great speakerphone.

Palm Treo 680 Review

 

While other smart phone manufacturers have been piling on the features for business-centric customers, Palm has made its Treo more attractive and ultimately more appealing to the masses. While heavy-duty business travelers will bemoan a somewhat thin...

Palm Treo 500 Windows Mobile Smartphone

 

Not that the Palm Treo 500 is anything dramatically new, far from it - it's Palm's unbranded version of the Palm Treo 500v (see our previous review here) which Palm exclusively launched with Vodafone Autumn last year. Nevertheless, Palm's Treo 500 is...

Expert review by: Brad Kellett (mobileburn.com)

Review: Palm Treo 680

 

Palm views its new 680 as a cross-over smartphone device. It lacks some of the power that other Treos have but is available for much less money, opening them up to new segment of consumers. Brad tests it out and comes away impressed.

Fantastic keyboard, great PIM functions for the price

Steep UI leaning curve, poor outdoor screen usability, lack of high-speed data
