Excerpt: I am a Palm Treo long term user. By long term, I am referring to more than several Palm devices and three or more years of use. I happen to like the interface and now with the Smartphone capability and range of features of the Palm Treo 755p I have graduated into the 21st century.
Conclusion: Palm's latest Treo, the 755p is really a sawed-off Treo 700p. Because the Treo 700p was a great PDA/phone, that will be plenty for most people, but there's absolutely nothing cutting-edge about this new device.
Pros: Still a powerful, easy-to-use smartphone, now in a smaller case.
Cons: Software, especially the OS, is starting to look really old. No Bluetooth stereo.
Conclusion: The 755p is a two-year-old phone that costs the same as more capable and up-to-date smartphones. It would need a slimmer design, an updated feature set, and the revamped Linux-based Palm OS kernel in order to compete.
Pros: 3G data speeds. High-resolution touch screen. Still a great organizer and a good choice for Mac users.
Cons: Pricey. Palm OS is growing mold. No GPS, mobile TV, Wi-Fi, or stereo Bluetooth. About 1.5 ounces too heavy.
Excerpt: Palm’s latest Treo improves upon its predecessor, the 700p, by slimming down, ditching the antenna nub, and adding instant messaging and push email. Granted, you can almost see the mold on the ancient Palm OS, which remains a multimedia and multitasking weakling, but its well-oiled design affords...
Pros: Dedicated ring/vibrate switch. Bundled Documents to Go software excels at creating and syncing Office files. Huge third-party software library.
Cons: Still no Wi-Fi. Weak video, mediocre music apps. IM doesn’t support Gtalk, Jabber, or ICQ. Lacks stereo Bluetooth.
