Palm Treo 800w Review

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

Palm Treo 800w

30 July 2008
  • 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.

Palm Treo 800w

PC Magazine
28 June 2008
  • 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.

19 July 2008
  • Excerpt: Na de release van de Apple iPhone 3G heeft de HTC Touch Diamond er een flinke concurrent bij. Beide toestellen focussen zich op dezelfde doelgroep. De winnaar lijkt al vast te staan. Of toch niet?

Expert Review

12 December 2007
  • 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
