The Treo 800w does just about everything I could want.

Comments about Palm Treo 800w Smartphone:

The Palm Treo 800w is a combination of both old and new. This smartphone follows the same model like that of its previous models, but has become thinner compared to its earlier models. The Palm Treo 800w is 4.4 inches high, 2.2 inches width and 0.7 inch breadth. It weighs 5 ounces. This smartphone can easily slip into your pocket. The model is equipped with a QWERTY keyboard and touch screen functions, but is quite compact. The whole package comes with a USB cable, an AC adapter, a stereo headset, user guide and the software CD.

The Palm Treo 800w supports Wi-Fi and GPS. It also is loaded with Windows Mobile 6.1 and EV-DO Rev. to support the Wi-Fi and GPS. The band mode is CDMA2000 1X 800/1900 and the operating system is Microsoft Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional. All this will give a talk time of up to 270 min. The Palm Treo 800w also is equipped with a 2-megapixel camera that enables the user to take pictures like a professional. You can utilise it to record videos and store to play at a later time.

The Palm Treo 800w is priced at a convenient package and it is the best buy for money. It is handy for both professionals and users who are always on the move. This smartphone is user-friendly with its soft touch buttons. Except for the cramped keyboard, this smartphone has a modern look with its sleek design and attractive color. The phone is available for Sprint customers too.

Critically flawed. Hope you never have to dial 911 on an 800w.

Comments about Palm Treo 800w Smartphone:

When I bought the 800w, I was just getting into the situation of having my work email (Exchange) accessible on my phone.  I was getting off of a Centro where it couldn't connect, and wanted to get onto Windows Mobile to connect to Exchange.

Unfortunately, I didn't realize this phone has a number of critical failures that, due to poor sales, neither Sprint nor Palm were willing to address in the form of software updates or ongoing support.  Most notably, the phone software cannot properly handle an emergency call to 911, which is exactly when you're not in the mood to have that kind of issue.

As a bonus, Sprint won't do anything about it, because they can't duplicate it, because they'd have to dial 911.  I had to call once and ended up getting the call dropped at least twice and they had to call me back to get a stable connection.

Devices like this are what put Palm on the road to getting bought out just for WebOS.  Their hardware just is not up to snuff.
