I have been using the Treo 750 SmartPhone for over a year now and have to say it is one of the best smartphones i have used having previously had the Palm Treo 650 this is a big improvement. It bosts a 240x240 TFT Screen which is large enough to see the headings of about 8-10 emails in one view. It also has the added advatage of using the Windows operating system and also includes a basic version of Office Mobile, Word, Excel, Powerpoint which allows you to open attachements. The phone accepts a Mini SD card and comes with headphones so can also be used to store your music making it a good device for making calls, texting, email and music. There is a 1.3 Megapixel camera for basic photos. The battery life suffer under heavy usage but i usually find that with general use it will last about two days. The device itself is a nice size and i would reccomend to anyone looking for a windows mobile device.
I currently have a Palm Treo 750 for work purposes. It's a great piece of kit.
The display is clear and big. I especially chose it for the windows operating system- applications include Microsoft powerpoint, word, excel, PDF viewer, SIM manager, Windows Media, Download agent, Camera, Bluetooth, Internet explorer. For a full list check out the Palm website. The ringtones are very loud, and the vibration function is strong enough that you actually feel it in your pocket. The appointments feature is handy as it gives you an alarm warning and displays appointments you`ve entered on the front screen so you see the appointments every time you look at your phone. Text messages are sent extremely quick.
Other features include USB to PC, wireless manager, GPS, voice command and wired car kit. In the box you get the phone, charger, adaptor for international plugs, hands free kit, and PC software.
The battery life is disappointing- i find that i have to charge it practically everyday. I`m on Vodafone and find that the reception seems to inconsistent.
I would definetly recommend this PDA to anyone considering buying a PDA.
Palm Treo 750? Oh what an item! Such a useful device for your pocket/handbag, whatever.
I have had my Palm Treo 750 for about 8 months now but am not truly satisfied. This model cost in the range of £350.00 to £400.00 new.
The good points are: Great mobile phone, useful diary, calender and all that you need in a "portable" office. The size is right, the feel of it is good, rounded, and comfortable to use. A good user friendly hand portable PC for Internet use. It is a "good-looker" without doubt! Best style from Palm.
Not so good points: After about 4 weeks the touch screen went sluggish and then stopped working altogether! My first impressions were that I had overloaded the memory with additional software and so I unloaded it. No change! Around 50% of the operations are quickly done with touch-screen and stylus. I have lost that advantage although it is still possible to use it with the qwerty keypad that is good. Large fingers such as mine have a disadvantage but that is not a reason to moan.
Another downside is that the battery life after a full charge is relatively short, you can find yourself with a flat battery after about 6 to 8 hours usage or less. I purchased a heavy duty battery specially to combat this problem. Now the Palm is too large to sit safely in its snug leather protective case. Oh dear!
My biggest moan and findings of many who own one of these Palm Treo 750 are the same as I have stated and they have written to Palm regarding this matter of inactive, non-working touch-screen. No replies! Palm still make and do sell this model without having dealt with the very bad problem it has. There is no known cure as far as I can discern after much investigation. Palm or its representative sellers will in fact change the Treo 750 for another new one= repeated story!! Sorry Palm but for this model I can only give you 4 out of 10. This is a hardware problem and not possible to solve with a software solution.
I would love to see a Palm Treo 750 without this problem/s. A complete manufacturers rethink. A rebuild seems the only answer that I can come up with. Others might know different of course. If there is an easy cure out there, please tell me! I keep drawing blanks.
Regards to all and thank you for reading.
