Hi treo maniacs,
I am in Vietnam. I have been thinking about buying a Treo smartphone since last December. My need is to have a phone that allows me to check my emails too in a proper manner. Did not buy a 600 knowing that the 650 was to be released early 2005.
Now my Sony Ericson T630 is dead and I need to buy it. Both models are now on offer here. The 600 @ $400, which seems a good deal and 650 @ $770, which is ... hard spending to digest... Still I can't decide. Buying the old one or the latest one... Appreciate your opinions.
Simple question: How fast are the menus, and especially SMS writing on long messages?
When ever using the phone or the net, the microwaves from the antena makes the unshielded speakers in the vicinitiy make a loud noise similar to morse code transmission. This happens even when the speakers are off. I suspect the strong signals from the antena make the speaker magnets vibrate. Any one else having a similar problem?
I used to own a Treo600. It's a great phone but with few shortcomings. I hope Palm people could read my mail and come up with better.
1. Improve the screen resolution to 252K
2. Camera at least 1.3 - 2 MP
3. Use metal alloy as casing to improve aesthetic value
4. Better ringtone and volume
5. Provides options for BT and Wifi.
OK, with all these, it would be a PERFECT phone. Naturally, Px will also be quite high. Hope to see it as Treo680.
Only Treo 650 and P910 have keyboard on the phone so that you can use the phone with only one hand whereby you need to use 2 hands to operate a O2 phone. The camera although is lesser than 1MP but the result is pretty good, it is better that O2 mini when indoor.
The most commonly use function in the PDA phone is basically the calendar, contact,task, email, camera and phone. Treo 650 provide all.
Got my Treo 650 2 weeks ago after trade-in my O2 mini & P910. Think this is the best smart PDA phone in the market which have almost all I need. It looks ugly initially but its getting better looking now. It make me feel good because not many people carry tis phone, I am not worry to bang into a young school girls who are using the same phone like mine. This Treo 650 is truly for man only.
Got this Treo650 for 1 week. Excellent product and well engineered. Of course is nothing perfect! Migrated to Treo650 nothing but happiness and never looking back.
I've had the 650 since Dec. I love it! The only complaint I have is that the mic. is extremely sensitive. Currently there is a sftwr update on palmone to possibly help this problem. Otherwise it's well worth the money!!!
I've had my GSM Treo 650 for 6 weeks now, after upgrading from a Treo 270. I live in Sydney and haven't seen 1 other 650 in my travels. It's a good phone and organiser rolled into 1 unit, and the fact I have loaded a stack of mp3 files onto the 1GB SD card means I have eliminated carrying around my iRiver player.
Internal memory is a bit stingy but you can load most things onto the SD card and they are cheap on eBay. I have no problems getting my email, but I don't use the browser function (cost related issue). I wish they'd get WiFi sorted out soon.
The camera resolution is poor compared to some others on the market, but the little use I make of it returns OK results.
A lot of people complain about quirky functions, but I have found they are usually related to third-party software not behaving properly. I couldn't live without Documents To Go, Backup Buddy, and Real Player (but no graphic equaliser...cheapskates!). I also use Ringo Pro to customise the ring tones.
Bluetooth is great with my HBH 650 headset from SE, and I am a little tempted to order a Bluetooth keyboard for more serious work.
Would love to hear from some other Aussies who have this Treo model.
sorry for those stupid, silly people who are not satisfied w their treo 650....use your brain in maximizing the features... or use pad paper instead .....
The whole thing sucks. Though this new model thank god has a decent 320x320 screen, not like the previous which had sucky 160x160 screen. And that keyboard is of no use really, but it's still better than on SE P910i. I think the best choice for PDA-phone is still XDA II (Qtek 2020). XDA III is newer, but it's bigger and bulkier and it's keyboard is a totally useless piece of crap. Palm really can't make decent PDA-phones, just face it! HTC still makes best devices. Even the old XDA (Qtek 1010) beats this Treo 650! Sorry, but I know what I'm talking about...
Hi all, i can't decide what to get the Treo650 , Nokia9500 or Sony Eric P910i. Can anyone give me a better opinion/review.
it doesn't support wi-fi cards. you will need to d/l a crack in order to use it. palmone hasn't come out with a compatible wifi card.bummer.really nice looking phone with good functions though.
i think u can buy an external wifi card to search internet. am i right?
The lack of memory means this phone cannot be used for the serious business user that may have thousands of contacts. Palmone seems to have fallen asleep when there is a demand for a business phone with decent memory. Sack Palmones marketing department as they have comprised the phones abilities.
Hi, i'm king of lost in deciding to get the Treo650 or Nokia9500 or Sony Eric T910i. Can anyone out there give me a better opnion/review.
Got this about a week. Hanged 4 times when starting a program; turned phone function off by itself all of a sudden about 3 times... otherwise GREAT screem, GREAT keyboard, GREAT UI, GREAT sync, GREAT packaging, BAD support, BAD documentation, BAD after sale service, BAD wait time for help, BAD palmOne! They need to TEST THIS THING first before releasing it.
