palmOne Treo 650

 

PalmOne has played it safe, tweaking not overhauling the Treo design.There's much to appreciate, but it may be too little too late.

PalmOne Treo 650

 

Check the price and contract details in the new year, as this will not be a cheap phone (probably selling for something like £380 the 600 currently sells for SIM-free). Expect this to be a reliable replacement for a trusted performer.

Treo 650 Review

 

Designed for the business user and now sporting the required set of functions like Bluetooth and a vibrant colour screen can Palmone's Treo 650 become the business smartphone of choice?

Palm Treo 650

 

Released in February 2005, Palm's quad-band Treo 650 is a hybrid PDA/mobile-phone device that addresses many of the shortcomings of its hugely popular...

Easy-to-use backlit keyboard, Silent Mode button, improved camera

No handwriting recognition, Wi-Fi is not supported, only 22MB of memory

The Palm Treo 650 is a fully featured smartphone with its small size, backlit keyboard and improved camera making it a worthwhile purchase.

Palm Treo 700WX Smartphone - Sprint (CDMA, Bluetooth, 1.3MP, 128MB, SDIO/MMC/SD)

 

In late 2006, Palm's Treo 700w received a quiet upgrade to the 700wx, which has the same design and runs the same OS but contains enhancements under the hood. Most notable is the RAM upgrade: With 48MB after a hard reset, the 700wx (available on the...

Includes a fantastic music player ; Camera takes impressive shots

Talk-time battery life is poor ; Keys are stiff and too close together

The 700wx is physically identical to the already-impressive Treo 700w, but adds some worthy upgrades under the hood.

Palm Treo 650 Smart Phone

 

The Treo 650 from Sprint combines the venerable Palm operating system with a nicely designed handset that includes a fairly usable QWERTY keyboard and a vibrant display. It's not perfect--some design quirks and a high price are among its drawbacks--but...

Vibrant 2.5-inch display

Small keys can be hard to use for typing Small amount of accessible memory

Finally, there's the price. Our test unit, from Sprint, sells for $500 (as of April 7, 2006, with a two-year contract). That means the Treo 650 carries roughly the same price tag as a value-priced desktop PC. Carrier rebates bring that price down a...

Palm Treo 650 (Verizon Wireless) review:

 

Intro When we made our wish list for the successor to the well-received Treo 600 , it was to keep the great design but add several missing features. Fortunately, that's precisely what PalmOne did with its new Treo 650. This model offers a...

The Palm Treo 650 benefits from an improved display and keyboard, integrated Bluetooth, and a speakerphone. The world phone also has a 312MHz processor, Palm OS 5.4, multimedia, and e-mail support.

Sadly, the Palm Treo 650 has meager integrated memory, no built-in Wi-Fi, and a cumbersome Bluetooth setup. Also, the Treo 650 suffers from average audio quality, a low-resolution camera, a nonstandard headphone jack, and no analog roaming.

Though it has its shortcomings, the PalmOne Treo 650 offers solid performance and adds some key features to maintain its reign as smart-phone leader.

palmOne Treo 650 (Verizon)

 

It's the best phone of the three Treo 650s, but data options are disappointing.

Excellent voice quality. Loud speakerphone.

No EV-DO. Expensive data plan.
