Palm Treo Pro

PC Magazine
30 March 2009
  • Conclusion: Palm scores big with this shrewdly specified enterprise smartphone, even if the lack of a subsidized, carrier-backed version keeps mainstream users away.
  • Pros: Svelte for a touch-screen handset. Several thoughtful design touches. Sharp screen resolution. Supports Wi-Fi, HSDPA 3.6, and GPS with turn-by-turn directions.
  • Cons: Some performance hiccups. Cramped keyboard.

Palm Treo Pro (Sprint)

PC Magazine
29 March 2009
  • Conclusion: This Treo Pro is a solid, responsive handset for business customers who need Windows Mobile compatibility. But anyone else is probably better off waiting to see how the highly anticipated Palm Pre stacks up.
  • Pros: Good voice quality. Responsive UI. Smooth video playback.
  • Cons: Mediocre reception. Poor battery life. Could use more RAM and a better Web browser. Camera lacks some basic features.

Palm Treo Pro Review

Phone Arena
14 October 2008
  • Conclusion: For the most part we like what we see in the Treo Pro. Palm has always been good at making functional business devices, but they’ve lacked in the innovation department for a long time now. The Pro brings a complete makeover to the Treo line that is years overdue, but great nonetheless. Functionality remains par for the course, though we would have liked to see a prettier interface.
  • Pros: Sleek, modern design without losing functionality, All the productivity that comes with Windows Mobile 6.1, Lots of connectivity options, including Wi-Fi and 3G
  • Cons: Call quality is subpar, Hardware is beautiful, but the software needs some sprucing up, Keyboard is good, but large fingers still may have problems

Palm Treo Pro

  • Conclusion: We're thrilled to see a Treo with a very current and competitive feature set. No more longing for WiFi or a GPS-- they're here! We've even got a flush screen for better access to the touch screen and improved looks. We do wish Palm had done a better job with the keyboard and application buttons-- they're just not top notch like older Treo phones.

Schon getestet: Palm Treo Pro mit GPS und WLAN

CNET
15 September 2008
  • Summary: Hinsichtlich Design und Funktion bietet das Treo Pro zwar klare Verbesserungen, aber Palm hat das Smartphone damit nicht neu erfunden. Außerdem kostet es mehr als die Konkurrenzgeräte. Ob es technisch und in der Praxis dennoch überzeugt, verrät der Test.
  • Pros: schlankes, elegantes Design, zahlreiche Verbindungsoptionen, viele Produktivitäts- und Kommunikationstools, GPS-Navigation
  • Cons: hoher Preis, zeitweise etwas träge Performance, zu kleine QWERTZ-Tastatur für ein Business-Smartphone
