Excerpt: I've been generally pleased with my Treo 650. I got so that I could synch my calendar at the office and take it with me while traveling. I'm able to retrieve email, surf the web, and make phone calls with the Treo and don't find I need a laptop when I travel. The applications suit my needs - and I can always download a new one if needed. It does occasionally crash and restart on me for no apparent reason, but on the whole I find it convenient and user friendly.
If I were stuck on an island, I would take with me... my Treo!

Excerpt: Best tool that I keep in my pocket! Here's quickly some of the things I love about it:- I can take pictures, and immediately upload them to my website- I can watch streaming TV and listen to streaming music- Movie showtimes are only one click away, so is my email- When really bored (long trip) I can load a movie on to an SD card- The keyboard is superb!- Splashblog, Kinoma, DialByPhoto, OperaMini- I can tune my car from it!
Excerpt: The Treo650 is an excellent way for me to keep my life and schedule straight. I have tried carrying PDAs before, and I will just leave the bulky PDA at home and grab my phone. This works out great for me because it is just a little bit bigger than my old phone, but had an incredible amount of increased functionality. I have a Mac and needed to sync my phone with my iCal and Addressbook. I purchased Missing Sync to go along with this phone and the Bluetooth sync has...
Excerpt: This phone has great features! It does tend to reset itself sometimes and the software configuration gets hosed without proper support for fixes. The lag time for the web needs improvement..but, I think this is a feature of the service and not the phone itself. It is bulky and heavy.
Excerpt: I used to make fun of people who had a Treo until somebody bought me one. Having my contacts, calendar, notes, and phone all in one unit proved to be very helpful. I also appreciated the many software titles that I was able to download; games, diet and fitness calculators, password managers all became integral parts of my life. I have since upgraded to the very newest Palm 800W and absolutely love it!
Excerpt: This is my very first experience in the smartphone era. And I enjoyed my first experience. Having a touchscreen and keypad combo allows for the best of both worlds when it comes to input and user control. Even though it's thick, it still has a great feel in your hand because it feels solid. It does have an attenna stub at the top of the phone which sticks out a bit too much for my liking. But ultimately, the thing that stands out with this phone is the OS.
Great personal planner. Blackberry still better for business.

Excerpt: There is not a cell phone out there that has been designed to keep face off screen. Is that gross or what? BUT, they do have speaker phone. So if you have to borrow someones phone, you can tap on the speaker icon with the end of your pencil and hold it far enough to keep the ooey of your face.This Treo is great for multi tasking. If I could change anything on it, it would be the ability to set the time on automatic shut off.
An oldie but goodie. Simple smartphone with a big battery.

Summary: We've been using these since we bought our first used one off eBay in 2005. We were Palm users before, so it was great to combine our cell phone and palm and also get a keyboard. Nowadays, the VGA camera is anemic and the screen is small and the resolution stinks for trying to see anything on the Blazer Internet browser.
Summary: My first PDA was a Palm M500, I liked it. My last phone nokia n82 - great camera but with Symbian OS which I do not quite fit. At work and at home I use linux - Palm OS Treo 650 perfectly combines with Linux and I'm happy.
I highly recomend this phone cause it lives up to the palm name

Summary: Great phone.Has many features I was looking for in a phone and PDA.The only downfall is that it is a little on the heavy side but what can you expect with a mini computer squezzed into a phone.It is a very good for the money.
