Excerpt: Palm Treo 700wx: Palm Treo has been providing personal digital assistants (PDAs) with high quality and quantity of features. The 700wx of this very company was released with some new and unique features as compared to its successors eg Palm Treo 700w.
Conclusion: The Treo is hard to beat in any form, and the 700wx improves on the 700w by adding more memory. This and the 700w are by far the easiest Windows Mobile Pocket PC phones to use one-handed and Palm's usability enhancements and hardware design are a winning combination. The smartphone is responsive and stable and generally a joy to use in business and messaging-centric settings.
Pros: Great design and QWERTY keyboard make the Treo a breeze to use on the go. Palm's software enhancements are a strong value-added that further increase ease of use. Large and bright display is easy to read, plenty of memory to run several programs at once. Ample storage and SD expansion if you need more. 3G means fast data and web pages load quickly.
Cons: Camera is the pits, 240 x 240 resolution display means you see less on screen compared to most other Windows Mobile PPC phones and the Palm OS Treo 700p. Occasional compatibility issues with 3rd party apps that haven't been updated to support the square screen. No built-in WiFi. No threaded SMS application.
Conclusion: Personally, I'll be sticking with my Palm OS Treo as I find that the Treo 700p and 650 are just much more easier to operate. Even with some of the Treo's features ported over, Windows Mobile still can't match the one handed abilities and the simple elegance of the Palm PIM programs and general intuitiveness found in many Palm OS applications. That said, the Treo 700wx is a very powerful smartphone. I have to say its the best Pocket PC device that I've ever used to date.
Conclusion: This is a great device. Is it perfect? No. Is it the best Smart phone you can get? Nope - not even close. The 700p ran faster and had better access to the Power Vision features and was easier for text messaging and email. The touch screen is a great feature and allows the user to edit Office files - unlike the “Q” and the “Dash” and other phones with the Smartphone OS.
Pros: Great design, Easy to use, Fast EvDO connectivity, compatible with thousands of programs out of the box, Windows OS, DUN supported, Push Email capable out of the box, very cool
Cons: No included case, screen protector or car charger.
