PC Magazine
30 November 2006
  • Conclusion: Our Editor's Choice for phone/e-mail devices, the PalmOne Treo 650, performs better on Cingular's network than on Sprint's, but you'll pay more for the added speed.

PC Magazine
4 September 2006
  • Conclusion: If your business currently supports Treo 600s or other palmOne PDAs for your mobile workforce, or if you finally are giving in and buying a smartphone, the Treo 650 is a compelling upgrade that makes it a must buy for all but the most bleeding-edge power users.
  • Pros: Many improvements over the excellent Treo 600, including high res screen, improved camera, removable battery, Bluetooth. Non-volatile memory can save your PDA data even if the battery runs out.
  • Cons: Could use a little more RAM as well as Wi-Fi. Lackluster speakerphone performance.

Treo 650

17 May 2006
  • Conclusion: Looking for a convergence device that gives you the best of both worlds? The Treo 650 should be on your short list. While larger and heavier than today's feature phones, you won't have to carry two devices so you'll ultimately lighten your load.
  • Pros: Great display, fast performance, integrated Bluetooth, good battery life by smartphone standards. Battery is user replaceable, uses non-volatile memory so data and applications will survive a complete battery drain. Doubles as an MP3 player and portable video player. Expandable via SD cards.
  • Cons: No Bluetooth DUN profile on carrier branded Treos (but one is coming, we're told), no WiFi and the only way to add it is via Enfora's bulky sled. On the Sprint version, there's and odd delay of a few seconds after pressing the send key to dial a number (doesn't happen on Cingular version). A high...

Palm Treo 650 Review

Digitaltrends
12 February 2006
  • Conclusion: The Palm Treo 650 is a great all-around replacement for that old PDA and cell phone rattling around in your pocket. Sure, the software is a little buggy and the OS has more band-aids than a burn victim, but the stylish package and all-around convenience far outweigh these minor annoyances.
  • Pros: Tight integration of PalmOS with phone features; optional camera; Bluetooth
  • Cons: Buggy software; no Wi-Fi; limited memory

  • Cons: Protruding antenna; not enough internal memory; mono earbud supplied.

  • Summary: Lately the line between cell phone and smartphone is getting very blurry. The typical phone sold today is more powerful than ever and has a number of features that used to be exclusively in PDA territory like an alarm, daily planner, and MP3 player, but they still do not have the power or usability...
