Excerpt: Wow. Clearly, your other reviewers are on a different page. On paper, this is an awesome phone. In practice, this is one of the most poorly performing piece of technological garbage I have ever owned. I don’t know if it is the Windows Mobile O/S or Palm’s implementation of it but clearly, whoever thought up this combo didn’t understand phones. As a phone, this device fails miserably. The most frustrating thing is that it is intermittent.
Excerpt: After looking at the specs I am bailing out of Verizon after 14 years and going with Sprint once this phone is available! The reason why is the 750 is going to have 128 memory which is twice as much as the 700. Why pay $45.00 when Sprint's plan is $15.00? I have had it with Verizon!
The Palm Treo 750v, is it worth the money and time?
20 August 2009
Excerpt: A couple of months ago I was given the opportunity to acquire the Palm Treo 750v from a colleague at a very low price. He already had the very handy TomTom application and due to my sat nav breaking I decided to buy it from him. I have liked the look of the phone which comes accross as an expensive well built product and have found the software relatively easy to use due to it being Windows based just like most home computers.
Pros: Internet and email access is easy . Texting is very user friendly, quick and simple .
Cons: Camera resolution, no wireless connectivity, and fiddly keyboard .
Excerpt: I got my lovely TREO 750v about half a year ago and I'd be happy to keep it for a while yet, in fact I would still have it handy even when I do eventually buy a new phone (for upgrade). Love this phone, love it! love it ! I call it my "mini me" - it's smart, efficient , versatile and with all those qualities who would have thought it could all actually fit the palm of my hand.
Pros: It has Windows Applications handy
Cons: The camera quality does not match it's many great features
Excerpt: Horrible device. The company I work for gave me a UK Vodafone-branded Palm Treo 750v, with the good (www.good.com) software preinstalled for email connectivity and sync with the corporate exchange server. Battery life: extremely poor. If I fully charge the telephone in the evening, it is fully dead in less than 24 hours. And we're talking about standby time, not actual usage: I tried this on weekends, when I received no emails nor calls, nor made any myself.
Pros: Can't think of any
Cons: Standby time less than 24 hours; not user - friendly
Excerpt: These days it's easy to get confused by the mobile phone market - there's a plethora of phone products so vast and varied that there's a mobile phone to suit literally every personality, pocket, wallet or, even, bikini line. The only product line more varied than the personal communications industry is that of the adult industry, where ladies have a veritable surfeit of choice when it comes to toys for pleasure with devices literally designed to fit every - and I mean...
Pros: Fully usable handheld computer and phone combined
Excerpt: Having been a heavy user of palm pda's for a few years I was reluctant to part with them, however it was getting a bind carrying my mobile phone and pda around with me. I thought long and hard about the choices and decided to stick with Palm and go for the Treo 750v. I sold my phone and pda on ebay and away I went. I have now used the Treo for 4 weeks and feel I made the right decision... why?
Pros: One machine to carry . Quick internet access . Easy to operate
Excerpt: Super device. Everything you would expect is present. The 750v integrates well with Microsoft Exchange/Outlook and operates in an efficient manner. The camera picture and sound quality are adequate. This device offers a good compromise between the functionality of a top-end mobile phone and a PDA. As a former Blackberry 7100v user the only features I miss are the Blackberry track wheel and the ability to charge up the device via a mini USB cable.
Pros: Best compromise between PDA and high - end mobile phone I've seen yet .
Excerpt: i do not no any thing about this product i only know that it is a smart phone. it looks like it is a good phone and i will try and find out more about it (i guess i have some research to do) this smartphone looks complicated but it is probably easy to use but i don't know. the palm treo 750v looks and sounds interesting and probably coulb be very handy in some sittuations for example memory.
Excerpt: I was looking forward to this handset. Moving away from my 6 months old SPV M3100 I was expecting an upgrade, but it's not. First disappointment was finding out the lack of built in WiFi. I've been stuck in enough airports and coffee shops to know how useful a wireless connection would be, especially if you play with skype. Then it was time to connect the handset to my PC...
Pros: Looks and feels good
Cons: No wireless, Non - standard USB connector, Small screen, Slow
