Excerpt: I upgraded from a Katana to the Palm Treo and LOVE it. The touch screen is addicting and if I try to use someone else's phone I tend to touch the screen and look silly. I love the calendar and Google Maps the best. I also love having the game Suduko on there for when I am bored. I love that it also has an MP3 player but wish it held more songs without needing additional storage. I get pretty good service no matter where I am and love that about the phone.
Excerpt: This phone was my first "smartphone" purchase and I have been very pleased with it's abilities. The light weight slim design fits easily in a pocket or purse, and the protective cover is definitely a must! I like that this phone has both a touch screen and a full keyboard.
Excerpt: I bought this phone unlocked for international use. It works well on international systems. I have had no real difficulties, but two things have stood out for me. The two problems I have had with the phone are that skype cannot be downloaded on it for some reason. Skype mobile is only allowed on certain smartphones so if you use it a lot (like I did), you might want to look into that first. The most annoying thing about this phone is that there is no way to turn it off.
Palm's last great achievement with their original OS
9 September 2012
Excerpt: The Treo was Palm's last great achievement with their old OS. I still see these phones around and my wife still uses her's. If you are looking for a cheap smartphone that opened the doors for smartphones; the Treo Pro is for you. But since App development has all but halted, even though Palm invented App stores nearly 10 years ago, everyone has moved to bigger and better. I a great phone to get you started. Will work with Microsoft Exchange, Google, etc.
Excerpt: i purchased my palm treo about three months ago. I fell in love with it. i have owned many phones in the past and they could not do half as much as this one can. I take alot of pictures and i can take my SD card right out of my camera were ever i am and put it in my phone and send a picture to anyone anytime. i can set my phone to check different emails. It has a planner to schedule appointments both business and personal.
Excerpt: The Palm Trea works well and has held up to rain, dropping it and other rigorous use. I like the size. It fits well in a women's smaller hands and I also like the speaker feature which makes it easier to hear when you are outdoors. Having e-mail access is a plus and it is also compatable to my Supra System allowing me to upload "key" access for my Real Estate Job. I have had my unit for 3 years and have had no problem. I'm still using the same battery.
"An excellent all-around Windows Mobile smartphone"
31 December 2009
Pros: I like Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. It comes with Office Mobile, has a wealth of 3rd-party apps available (many free), is extremely configurable, does POP and IMAP email and supports many excellent IE substitutes (Opera, Skyfire, UCWeb). Awesome!
Cons: The keyboard and screen are smaller than ideal. I abhor touchscreen-only keyboards (no tactile response), so the only other option is a slide-out keyboard. When I bought my Palm, that meant the HTC Touch Pro2, which is ridiculously expensive (+$200).
