  • 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.

  • Pros: Nice looking phone, feature rich
  • Cons: screen scratches, not the most durable phone on the market .

  • 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.

the Palm Treo 500 - a macintosh users perspective!

  • 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

Palm Treo 500

  • 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.

I got it with my O2 contract

Mr. Gareth A. Price, Amazon
26 May 2008
  • 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.
