  • Excerpt: The palm treo 500 is like the cheaper alternative to a blackberry without the blackberry associated problems. The treo is running on windows mobile operating system which is brilliant for syncing with your windows pc with a simple and easy to use piece of software.

Excellent bit of kit.

  • Summary: Mine replaces a Treo 270 that finally gave up the ghost. Initially, being a Linux head I was sceptical about the Windows Mobile aspect of the phone, but after some searching was swayed by the generally favourable reviews.

  • Pros: Nice looking phone, feature rich

Stylish, good range of features and fast internet, but poor build

  • Excerpt: Having used Palm for several years in varying shape and form, when looking for a new mobile phone to replace a Nokia, given good experiences of Palm in the past, it seemed a good idea to give their new (as was then) smart phone a try.
  • Pros: Good size, good features, easy to use, feels good, stylish, fast internet and good battery life .
  • Cons: Poor build quality, some software issues .

For someone looking for a basic PDA this could be good for the price.

  • Excerpt: Having used both the Treo 650 and 750 i was quite dissapointed when i recieved a Treo 500 device on trial. Initial thoughts about the device were that it looked quite cheaply made and didnt feel to comfortable in your hand.

Palm Treo 500

Martin Slevin, Amazon

  • Summary: The treo is a good all round organiser / phone. I put a 4gig memory card in it and it holds everything I need it to. It connect easily to bluetooth devices etc. If I was to grumble I would say the following; The camera is ok but only 2 megapixel. A 3 plus camera is obviously better.

the Palm Treo 500 - a macintosh users perspective!

coureur, Ciao

  • Excerpt: I chose the Palm Treo 500 for the fact that it has a full keypad for typing, in the style of the blackberry and iphone design rather than having to rely on predictive text etc for email, and although the buttons are naturally small, this aspect of the phone is still very appealing.
  • Pros: keypad, email, bubble breaker
  • Cons: battery life

Disappointing

N. Budhia "Buds", Amazon
13 February 2009
  • Summary: I bought this phone as I liked the fact it had a QWERTY keyboard, a camera, mp3 player, PDA, email, large screen etc etc. And it does. What my phone, and my partner's version (Treo 500V) doesn't have is decent battery life.

I got it with my O2 contract

Mr. Gareth A. Price, Amazon
14 January 2009
  • Summary: PROS: Like the keyboard, doesn't feel cheap. Menu system is not that complicated. Sturdy build. Nice screen. CONS: Takes it's time switching between some programs (shame it's got the MS virus). Powering ON/OFF is slow. Needs a headset as holding the phone to your ear makes listening hard.
