Good phone, but screen is easy to scratch!

  • Excerpt: I like the palm treo 500 - it looks good and provides plenty of features for users on the go, my favourite being the email feature - now I get emails delivered to my phone I can't imagine life without it. The Palm treo seems to have everything, but one problem remains - it just isn't hard wearing enough.
  • Pros: Nice looking phone, feature rich
  • Cons: screen scratches, not the most durable phone on the market .

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. The first three or so months of owning the phone proved the 500 has plenty of features and is rather user friendly, it felt and looked great and build quality hadn't proven to be much of a problem, however after this time, things started to...
  • Pros: Good size, good features, easy to use, feels good, stylish, fast internet and good battery life .
  • Cons: Poor build quality, some software issues .

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. When the phone is locked and out of signal (factory floor for example) it goes to sleep and won't pick up a strong signal unless switched off and on again.

the Palm Treo 500 - a macintosh users perspective!

coureur, Ciao
5 March 2009
  • 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. Caps lock typing can be very awkward however... As a macintosh user, I wasn't sure about using a windows based product, but the functionality is very good and simple to use.
  • Pros: keypad, email, bubble breaker
  • Cons: battery life

Windows Mobile - a long way to go to match Palm OS

  • Summary: I agree with other comments that this smartphone is fine if you've not used a Palm OS system before. I bought this as I wanted to carry one device instead of phone/pda, it does most of what I want it to do, but nowhere near as easily as my Palm PDA. Endless menu's will get you where you want, yes there is a scroll icon menu at the top of most frequently used programs/functions, but annoyingly this is not customisable.

  • Summary: Средний телефон, но уж больше староват он внутри, хотя выглядит достаточно хорошо, так сказать, как телефон бизнес-класса. Но "внутренности" телефона сразу оттолкнули меня: интерфейс, функционирование, прошивка вообще. Скучный телефон, но выглядит очень хорошо.
  • Pros: Округлые формы и гладкий корпус, QWERTY клавиатура, Приятно лежит в руке, Все клавиши большие по размерам, очень удобны, нажатия производятся без усилий, Нормальный аккумулятор, зарядки хватает вполне надолго, Хороший динамик, Качественный микрофон, что обеспечивает замечательную связь
  • Cons: Пластик по всей поверхности гладкий, даже скользкий, Панель и дисплей слишком маркие, быстро загрязняются (видны все разводы, также следы от пальцев), Для нынешнего времени слишком низкое разрешение экрана, соответственно изображение не супер-чёткое (но вполне хорошее), Невозможно что-то увидеть на экране при ярком солнце, Плохая камера, без вспышки, Простой и незамысловатый интерфейс (даже можно сказать древний), Неудобное управление в применении функций, Тел...

  • Summary: Gefallen hat mir die möglichkeiten was ich mit dem Telefon machen kann. Nicht gefallen haben mir das ich keinen Dastenabgleich mit den Alten Palmsofware machen konte und meine Daten neu eingeben muste und das die Sofware die mitgeliefert wird nur sehr schwer zu instalieren ist sowie die schache Aku leistung und das wenn ich einen Alarm einstelle das Gerät für die Alarm funktion dabei eingeschaltet bleiben muß.

Vielseitig aber nicht perfekt

Ralf Spangenberg, Amazon
18 December 2009
  • Summary: Ich habe eine Weile gebraucht um mich an die Bedienung zu gewöhnen. Sychronisierung mit Outlook u.a. Officeprogrammen klappt ganz gut, Emails werden abgerufen, Internet funktioniert. Anfangs hat sich das Handy mehrmals aufgehangen. Telefonieren war nicht möglich. Der Fehler lag aber offensichtlich an ZUsatzprogrammen, die ich zur besseren Bedienung nachträglich installiert hatte. Nach der Deinstallation funktionierte das Handy einwandfrei.

SMARTphone

  • Summary: Ich bin seit vielen Jahren ein großer Anhänger von palm Organizern. Die Geräte haben sich immer als zuverlässig und einfach zu bedienen erwiesen. Deshalb war es nur logisch, dass ich mal ein Palm Smartphone ausprobiere. Die Tasten bereiten mir leider ein wenig Probleme, sind anscheinend für zarte Kinderhände gedacht. Ich mit meinen dicken Wurstgriffeln habe jedenfalls arge Probleme.
