"The Treo 700w runs Windows Mobile 5 and sports the same great, compact form factor of the Treo 650. This smart phone also comes with Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and EV-DO support."
"Unfortunately, the Treo 700w doesn't include integrated Wi-Fi and has a somewhat poor 240x240-pixel resolution."
"The Palm Treo 700w brings Windows Mobile and a number of useful features, such as push e-mail and photo speed dial, to the much-beloved smart phone, but its heft and its washed-out screen has us giving the edge to the Treo 650."

Many find it in vogue to lambast the PalmOS (Garnet) platform as antiquated and outlived. My take is show me what works as simply, elegantly, and just plain better for what it was intended to do in the workplace and marketplace: namely, be an intuitive platform for syncing Outlook, or the Palm Desktop (and now, even the Cloud on Google, using proven solutions such as Pimlico's Pimlical and Datebook) with Palm's full-fledged PIM (calendar, contacts, tasks, and memos), email, and bevy of excellent, third-party apps and hacks that expand Garnet's limited copy-and-paste buffer and built-in task-switching capabilities. (Try, for example, RNS's Hi-Launcher/sub-launcher utilities and/or other excellent launchers available on that platform.) Amazingly, the Palm Centro (and other Garnet-based devices) allow programs like PocketTunes to run media and music in the backgroud, while others function in the foreground. Even by today's standards, this outpaces a few contemporary, multi-tasking OS's--including Palm's own WebOS-based Pre and Pixi smartphones! Blazer's limited web-browsing features lack the flair of its modern counterparts, but one still can install the superb Opera Mini browser on PalmOS, with Java and, with minimal tweaking, enjoy a full-blown web experience on a truly pocketable device. When I am on the "go," it is nice to choose between two browsing options: Blazer for rendering mobile web information reasonably fast, without Flash and unwanted ads; and Opera Mini for nimbly zooming-in and out of full page websites, using a stylus, without the need to tote a buff cloth for cleaning my device after nearly every use.
While I have owned an Apple iPod Touch for about a year, I prefer it as a compact media player for downloading and viewing recorded television shows and films, listening to music, playing games, etc., mostly when I'm in flight, and find no need to carry a laptop for work that I can otherwise do on my Centro. To date, not all of the titles available on other platforms such as Android, RIM, and Apple, have achieved the maturity and functionality of their equivalents, running on my Palm Centro.
No doubt, the new iPhone 4, with its multitasking, dual-facing cameras, speed, sexy marketing, superior build, and plethora of third-party apps deserves, undeniably, its "hit" status. While I have grown used to typing on the Touch's virtual keyboard, it doesn't offer me the more satisfying, tactile typing experience of Centro's physical keyboard--cramped bubbleboard and all. I make as many (if not, more) mistakes and corrections on my Touch as I do on my Centro.
In short, after a decade of using and accruing data on PalmOS, switching to Windows Mobile, RIM, Apple, even Palm WebOS, now, would be a step backward, yielding fewer applications and capabilities--even if I were to use emulators such as Style-Tap or Classic. I still rely upon a few, rare legacy programs that I use on my Centro, but that's another story. That said, WebOS, Android, Windows Mobile 7, or Apple's mobile MAC OS, may be in the future for me. I have tried Palm's WebOS-based Pre and Pixi at various carriers' outlets, and plan to try them again (or their successors), later, following HP's acquisition of Palm, but only after the platform and hardware have matured, and synergies have been properly optimized.
I offered similar thoughts on a palm platform website, and appreciate the opportunity to do so, again, for my purchase of the Palm Centro on eBay.
I'm hooked on Palm PDAs. So I saw the Centro as a chance to get rid of the PDA and do both on the cell phone. The screen is very small, and the power port is a weak link. When I got my old Centro from Verizon, it wasn't necessary to have a data plan for texting. After about two years of pocket wear and knocking around, the charging port became fragile, meaning that I had to sit and hold the plug "just right" so it would charge for around 1.5 hr/day. That situation didn't last too long. First I went to Verizon (VZ); they wanted to renew my contract for two years and give me some other phone. No, I want my centro, but I want it to charge up. Then they wanted to sell me a battery $40+tax+shipping ($8 for two on eBay+0tax+0shipping). But the battery didn't solve the problem, so I decided to buy a used Centro. (I'm close to retirement and don't want a 2yr commitment! VZ wanted $149+tx+sh for a replacement without contract.) The new Centro ($63+0+0) worked just fine; was in good shape and it charged on its own! Verizon 611 service got the new phone up and running in five minutes with no complaining that I didn't buy it from them.
A little duct tape can keep the pocket lint out of the charging port. The keyboard is "tactile" to your fingernails--'way too small for your fingers. The coating of the keys is so shiny that it's hard to find the special characters like + / * $ ! . So touch typing is definitely out.
Pros: it's a Palm PDA!!!, it's light, it's loud enough, it works well with bluetooth. Can send&receive pictures and text while talking on the phone! Good touchscreen dialing pad. Good tech support from VZ & Palm.
Cons: Verizon stores are the pits--keep away! Battery drain is significant; must charge daily, especially in weak signal areas. Shiny key coverings. Small screen. Poor design of charging port. Low-res camera.
My Palm PDA isn't lost. When my cell phone days are over, my trusty T|X is standing by to keep me organized.
The Palm Treo 700w does what it's suppose to do. If you want to get on the internet, go for it. Send a picture message, send it. You can even check your email from it. It takes a regular sd card that can fit into any camera. At this point I use the same sd card for my camera, my Wii, and my Palm.
I love the layout of the Palm Treo. Its your basic bar phone with the qwerty keypad. It's a pocket PC and another reason I bought it is because it has windows 5 mobile so I can type a paper in Microsoft word on the go. It has the earlier touch screen and stylus pen and some pretty neat features. I bought a wireless headset so I can also listen to my music using Window media Player.
I dislike the fact that I can't use the standard sized headphones to listen to my music (thats why I had to buy the wireless headphones). The headphone jack is smaller than the standard size. I also dislike how I haven't quite figured out how to shut the Palm completely off (even taking the battery out, once the battery is placed back in, it restarts). The camera is of a very low grade, but of course that isn't the purpose of the phone.
All in the Palm Treo is good PPC, definitely if you don't want to spend the "smart phone" money to get the latest gadgets of today.
I upgraded to the Palm Pre Plus, 5 months ago and I absolutely love it. The convience of having the internet on the go is invaluable. I appreciate the real time email connectivity while trying to stay on top of family life and employment seeking. Integrated contacts and calendars are amazing. The WiFi hot spot feature gives 5GB of internet per month (no extra charge) included with the $30 monthly data package that's required to use a Verizon smartphone.
I do have mild frustration with limited battery life and the WebOS operating system's lack of compatibility with the Flash Player platform used on many web sites. My guess is with a new WebOS version upcoming, the current version will never be Flash compatible.
Overall I think this is a great phone and would buy another.
