MobileTechReview Examines the Palm Treo Pro

Posted by Paul Martin in "Pocket PC Articles" @ 04:00 PM

"When we reviewed the Palm Treo 750 more than 1.5 years ago, it was a good phone with great ergonomics and Palm's usability touches that lacked competitive features like WiFi and a GPS. 1.5 years is a very long time in terms of consumer electronics and cell phones, and now we finally have a Windows Mobile Treo with all the trimmings, but minus the original Treo's wonderful palm-friendly (no pun intended) design, great keyboard and software tweaks. Funny how we can't have it both ways. That's not to say that the HTC-built Palm Treo Pro is a bad product by any means, but for those of you who are in love with Palm's special sauce-- it ain't here. There's no VCR-like screen controls for voicemail, no photo speed dial on the home screen and the custom applications like Comm Manager and the streaming media player are HTC's, not Palm's."

Once again, MobileTechReview offers an indepth look at a mobile device. This time, the Palm Treo Pro is examined, especially in the light of previous Palm devices they've reviewed. Since the new hardware bears a close resemblance to the design of the bargain Centro, the MTR take on ergonomics is especially interesting to those who anticipate using the keyboard heavily.

Verizon to Offer 700wx WM6 Update?

"...we've become aware of some upcoming updates for the Treo 700wx... Some internal training slides have been leaked onto the internet that detail the updates. The updates will be released sometime this "Spring and Summer," according to the slides. Update 1.24 for the Verizon Treo 700wx will update the OS to Windows Mobile 6 Professional! WooHoo! That's great! However, it's too bad that Sprint isn't getting the update. Also, Palm is going to put Windows Mobile 6 on the device even though Windows Mobile 6.1 is already out."



I missed posting on this last week; too bad it's not 6.1, but given the testing time for any new OS, I'm not surprised. In any case, Verizon 700wx owners, you may have something to look forward to in the new future. (I'd be much happier if WM OS updates were offered across many devices, but it looks like that's not happening any time soon.)
