Palm Treo 800w Review

Digitaltrends
25 November 2008
  • Conclusion: Unless you’re already in love with Palm products and the Windows Mobile 6.1 operating system, the Treo 800W offers very little to lure new users over to it. At $250 with a two-year contract, it also ends up costing far more than Sprint’s other smartphones without much to justify it.
  • Pros: Sharp screen; likeable keyboard; good build quality; fast EV-DO internet
  • Cons: Small screen; cheap stylus; poor GPS software; lousy browser; thick case

  • Conclusion: Palm finally brings its Windows Mobile–based Treo line up to spec, but its poor battery life and obstinate touch screen are letdowns.
  • Pros: Superb voice quality. High-resolution LCD. Integrates Wi-Fi and GPS radios. Plenty of bundled software.
  • Cons: Poor battery life. Lacks enough horsepower for Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. Finicky touch screen. Flimsy stylus.

  • Conclusion: The Treo form factor is hard to beat if you want a message-centric smartphone. Palm as always has enhanced one-handed and overall usability, making the device both pleasant and productive.
  • Pros: Feels great in hand and one-handed operation is a breeze. Excellent keyboard, fast device overall. Has the big four features for a business PDA phone: GPS, WiFi, Bluetooth and EVDO. GPS works well and Sprint Navigation and is a champ for Sprint TV.
  • Cons: Below average incoming call quality. GPS doesn't work in a turnkey fashion with standalone commercial GPS software packages like CoPilot. Looks plasticky. Camera is so-so. Battery capacity is low and as a result battery life suffers. WinMo runs most screens at 240 x 240 resolution.

  • Excerpt: Il produttore Palm dovrebbe lanciare all’inizio del 2008 il nuovo smartphone Palm Treo 800w basato sul sistema operativo Windows Mobile 6 Professional, invece del Palm OS presente sulla maggior parte dei modelli precedenti.
  • Pros: Memoria espandibile, 3G
  • Cons: Forse solo mercato americano
