Summary: Amazon wants to me write a review for a phone I bought 10 years ago? Okay, here's my review: this was most assuredly the worst smart phone I ever owned. The OS would crash half the time when I flipped it open to take a call. Perfect!
If you can find the 180, don't bothering getting it . Get the Treo 600 or 650.

Excerpt: I have used the Treo's 300, 600 and now the 650. Not to mention a T-Mobile Sidekick, the AT&T Motorola MPX, a Nextel Blackberry, a Samsung i600, and Treo's are the absolute gods of cell phones!!! The Palm source OS software is very stable, much more then Microsoft's Pocket PC.
Summary: OK, I had this SmartPhone back in the day, and it was freakin' amazing!! Best speakerphone I've EVER used, and that includes my newest iPhone. Yes, this old thing is a piece of history now, but deserves to be remembered as a trailblazer.
Summary: I think I have had one of every Handspring product except the Treo 270 at this point. Color was not a big need. I purchased my first 180 in Feb 02, and picked up the extended warranty. I was very glad that I did. The Treo has everything that I could want in a unified form factor.
Excerpt: After weeks of trying to decide what I wanted, I went out and got a Treo last Thursday evening. Like everything else, it's got it's positives and negatives. On the plus side, it's got the Palm stuff built in. -For a techo-geek like me, it's great.
