  • Conclusion: The first Windows Treo's form factor is still attractive, but this isn't as much of a step forward as we would have liked.

  • Conclusion: The Treo 700w is the best phone in Pocket PC clothing to date. Its superb ergonomics and usability tweaks make it a joy for calls and one-handed operation.
