Palm Treo 680

CNET

  • Summary: With a user-friendly interface, decent performance, and an affordable price point, the Palm Treo 680 is a good smart phone for the first-time buyer or for mobile users looking to be more productive on the road; we just wish it had a better camera and Wi-Fi support.
  • Pros: The Palm Treo 680 features a sleeker design; integrated Bluetooth with the ability to use it as a wireless modem; more user-accessible memory; and e-mail capabilities. It also offers a bright touch screen and productivity tools and is easy to use.
  • Cons: The smart phone doesn't have integrated Wi-Fi nor does it support Palm's Wi-Fi card or voice dialing. What's more, the VGA camera is disappointing, the QWERTY keyboard is a bit cramped, and the speakerphone quality is a bit scratchy.

  • Summary: The 680 has one of the most well-thought-out smartphone interfaces we've come across. The bright colours it's available in make it more attractive and all of the programs that would appeal to a mobile professional come preinstalled. Considering the time gap between the 680 and its predecessor, however, we would've at least expected built-in Wi-Fi and/or 3G.
  • Pros: Range of colours available, ergonomic shape, intuitive interface, well-rounded feature set, SD card slot
  • Cons: No Wi-Fi or 3G, lacklustre camera, cramped keyboard

Palm Treo 680

  • Excerpt: This latest Palm handheld uses similar hardware to the Palm Treo 750v, so most of our favourable comments about ergonomics apply. The main difference is that the 680 runs Palm OS version 5.4.9 (Garnet), including a new phone application sporting a tabbed interface. Improvements over the 750v include a bright 320 x 320 pixel screen along with better call quality. Disappointments include the VGA-only camera and lack of 3G and Wi-Fi.

Palm Treo 680

  • Conclusion: Toegegeven, het is geen umts-toestel, maar dat is dan ook het belangrijkste minpunt van het toestel. De Palm Treo 680 werkt snel en trefzeker en is onderweg een aangename compagnon voor bellen, e-mailen en internetten. Het is jammer dat de toekomst van het PalmOS onzeker is. Natuurlijk kan het PalmOS niet tippen aan het multimediageweld van Windows Mobile, maar is de zakelijke gebruiker op zoek naar dergelijke multimedia?

Palm OS und Push-E-Mail: Treo 680 im Test

CNET
30 March 2007
  • Summary: Im Oktober 2006 kündigte Palm den Treo 680 als günstiges Einsteiger-Smartphone an. Jetzt ist er verfügbar. Push-E-Mail, integriertes Bluetooth und das intuitive Palm OS sollen ein breites Publikum erreichen, das ohne viele technische Extras auskommt.
  • Pros: solides Design, Bluetooth integriert, mehr Benutzerspeicher, heller Touchscreen
  • Cons: kein WLAN, VGA-Kamera enttäuscht, QWERTZ-Tastatur fällt gedrängt aus, Freisprecheinrichtung klingt leicht krächzend

  • Summary: Palm在台灣雖然不熱門,但卻有一群死忠愛好者。採用Palm OS的Palm Treo 680,除了改良Treo 650的外型之外,簡單直覺的介面和豐富的軟體,是台很容易上手的智慧型手機。不過沒有支援3G和不甚理想的電力,會讓玩家們有點麻煩。
  • Pros: 內建QWERTY鍵盤、支援SD卡、造型圓滑
  • Cons: 沒有支援3G、沒有內建Wi-Fi、官方沒有提供軟體和MS Office 2007同步
