Palm Treo 700p Review at

“No one wants a good thing, nay a great thing, to end. So it is with the Palm OS Treo line. It never ends and instead constantly evolves. The Treo 600 was a hit in its day several years back and the venerable Treo 650 did better, defining the PDA phone and smartphone market. It had the ergonomics, great phone usability, strong PDA and Internet features that made it a killer device which nearly every major carrier jumped on and offered. So the Treo 700p builds on the 650’s strengths and improves on that device by adding EVDO, a much needed memory upgrade, a 1.3MP camera and bug fixes. Those of you who were hoping for an all-new feature set or redesign will be disappointed. But those looking for an upgrade for a tired Treo or simply one of the best PDA phones on the market will find the 700p most appealing.The Treo 700p runs Palm OS 5.4.9, has 128 megs of memory with 60 megs available and a 312MHz processor to keep things moving smoothly. It’s currently available only in a CDMA version and both Sprint and Verizon carry the phone. We received both for review, and they are 97% the same, with carrier software customizations and casing color being the only differentiators. We noted that the displays’ color casts were different on our Sprint and Verizon phones but Palm often uses more than one LCD supplier so we can’t say that the difference is related to the carrier rather than the LCD supplier for each piece. The 700p has a 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth (with support for DUN) and a 320 x 320 pixel color touch screen. It’s compatible with most Treo 650 and Treo 700w accessories such as sync cables, chargers and headsets.” Read this very interesting review here:
