Verizon Treo 650
about time!

 1:43 pm on May 18, 2005 (gmt 0)

Palm One and Verizon have announced that the Verizon powered Treo 650 will hit stores in 2 weeks.

this is only important if your spouse has a 600 you have lusted after and you've waited for the 650 ;-)

The Treo 600 is said to be the highest selling PDA based PHONE or Phone based PDA in history (they must not count the blackberry as a pda...lol).

It's about damn time. It's the one phone to rule them all. Too bad that the company with the best reception is the worst when it comes to phones.

Any word on a price? Are they nutering any of the features like they did to the Motorola v710?

<edit>$399.99 with 2 year contract *sigh*</edit>

I guess I'm all about answering my own questions today...


*Disclaimer: The Treo 650 supports the following Bluetooth Profiles: wireless headset, hands-free accessories, file transfer and synchronization with compatible PCs. It does not support all profiles, for object exchange (Obex).

Although this is a huge step forward in actually admitting to the removal of bluetooth capabilities, which they did not do to those of us who bought the Motoroloa v710, I think I'm going to have to switch to another carrier after my contract is up.

I don't know the finer details of bluetooth, but what does that mean?

I got my Treo 650 and wow am I happy with it. I was soooo dissapointed with the XV6600...the functionality was great at times because I'm sooo used to the environment of windows...but...i was dissapointed with the screen cracking on me in 2 weeks.

I looove the functionality of the Treo 650....it connects via bluetooth to my car, my powerbook and my ibm thinkpad with ease. SMS & Email is even easier...there is a few better things in this version vs. the Treo600 that I used to have. All around, i'm a happy camper! Then again, im a geek as much of you are...so these things arouse us...lol...

Like what? I love my 600 - what have they made better for the 650?

Personally I think the 650 is harder to use. I might not be able to test this as I gave away my 600, but as an example:

If I click on "Call Log" I can't just hit the green call button to redial the last call. I have to hit up first or use the stylus. I can't go down the list either without hitting up first.

Little things like this really irritate me. There is no reason for this that I can tell.

I kind of forget how the 600 worked, and I had a 600 through at&t - but have my 650 through verizon - so there may be a difference there as well.

I would rather have a treo than anything else, but they could have done a better job with the interface IMHO.
