The Palm Treo 750 sports a more compact design and comes with integrated Bluetooth, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and world phone capabilities. The Windows-based smart phone also works on Cingular's 3G UMTS network and has push e-mail and the new threaded chat view.
The Treo 750 will not support Cingular's HSPDA network at launch and doesn't have integrated Wi-Fi. It also has a low-resolution screen and failed to meet the rated battery talk time.
The Palm Treo 750 includes some nice enhancements and offers good usability, but you can get more for your money with the Cingular 8525.

I previously had a treo 650 and aside from the frequent resets and power off issues, I may have been content to continue using it.
I read all the reviews before selecting the 750, and I must say that most have been right on.
If you've had other treo's, for example the 680 which did not have many of the problems which I experienced with the 650, you may feel like you've taken a step backwards with the 750. I cannot say this with certainty because of my experience only with the treo 650, but I will say that the Palm OS seems to be an operating system that anyone could stumble through.
The Windows OS is a bit more difficult to navigate, primarily because you need to find the correct operating file or folder in order to customize/personalize many of the features. When you know how to navigate through the system, the differences are really a wash.
I really like the Windows Media Player on the 750; with the 650, I had to convert everything to Real Player format before my device recognized the music files. Simply transferring music files from my PC to my 750 mobile was a breeze and a simple search of your storage card results in all the music being transfered into Windows Media Player.
Additionally, the Treo 750 offers "internet sharing" with the use of the USB cable which attaches your Treo to your laptop. If you find yourself somewhere without WIFI, simply connect your Treo to your laptop with the tethering cord and you can now go on the internet through AT&T's wireles network. This is a great feature wherever AT&T service is available. Be sure you have an unlimited data package and you're set.
Windows OS makes setting up personal email accounts, with corresponding notifications, a breeze; and 3G compatability makes the 750 mobile downloads two or three times faster than I experienced with my 650.
That said,however, there are a number of shareware/freeware sites that offer downloads for Palm OS, and not so many for the 750 Windows OS. If you've grown to love the versatility that a mobile device can offer with all its application, this is a downside for this device.
I had read that the screen resolution decreased from the 650 which is 320x240 to the 750 which is 240x240, but I must say that on a 2 1/2 inch screen , the difference is negligible.
The camera on the 750, while only 1.3 mp, it much better than the VGA on my 650. Colors and lighting are noticibly better on the 750.
Speaker volume on the handset is lacking, much like the 650, but VolumeCare doesn't appear to offer an upgrade for the Windows OS yet.
I love the internal antenae of the 750, and the overall feel with the rubberized skin of the 750 makes the large size of the device deceptive.
All in all, I do think that the 750 is an upgrade, at least to the 650. I'm no techie, but this device was easy to use from the start, and after a couple of days familiarizing myself with the Windows OS, I feel that I got a great phone at a great price.
Palm treo and all palms serves the purpose if you are a business person. If you just want to look at you tube and facebook IPhone is for you. Tre has so much it can do excel,powerpoint,word,email, sending files. Only down fault is the active sync doesn't work with any palm device and is a waste of time so if you really have to sync you must have a reliable data plan on your phone service or sim card.
Otherwise this phone is as good as it gets. Only I am not spending 5 or 6 hundred just for touch screen and fancy pictures. It's a world phone and easy to unlock if I need to travel abroad. I love palm devices but not the software CD to sync no drivers loaded on it at all. Again with a data plan included in your package you should be okay. I would like to see it have wi-fi but it's not necessarily that important to me. Other plam devices like pixi,pre, and pro can serve that purpose. Overall it's a great cheap way to stay connected and do busines for less.If I drop an Iphone,HTC,or black berry torch the LCD will crack but I have droped treo several times already only scratches and scuffs but no need to replace LCD or have major repairs with treo because its sturdy and rugged. I prefer keyboard to touch also because my fingers are fast and small and the touch screen phones tend to make typing a nightmare. I love treo palm and all palms I am a palm addict I guess. great device for business minds.
Iphone is great for entertainment and facebook youtube. If you really want something reliable that will drop and still work type exactly and send text quickly. Palm devices are awesome choices and cheaper.
When first introduced, the Palm Treo 750 was hailed by one reviewer as "an I-phone for grown-ups", which is an apt description. It is the only phone I have found that incorporates *all* the features I think any smartphone worthy of the label should incorporate:
1. Ability to sync directly to one's computer - automatically updating contacts, email, files, calendar, and other items - without having to access the Internet. This thanks to Microsoft ActiveSync.
2. Standard (if small) QWERTY keyboard, and intuitive navigation keys.
3. Reasonably dependable one-touch voice dialing and call answering via Bluetooth headset.
4. Reasonably compact size.
5. Ability to view and edit Word Documents and Excel Spreadsheets, and view Powerpoint presentations.
6. Decent camera.
-Battery life is pretty good. I use my Treo as my primary phone, and even with the Bluetooth headset, a charge will usually last me all day.
-Recessed screen helps protect it from scratching and unintentional input.
-Easy and inexpensive to replace should the need arise
-WM6.1 is reasonably stable on this device.
-Strangely absent from WM6.1 is a simple, dependable alarm clock. Del Mar Alarm is a 3rd-party app that fill that need.
-The keyboard is pretty small, and number dialing is awkward.
-WM6.1, while not completely inscrutable, is not very intuitive.
The Treo 750 gives the user access to the Internet via 3G connection. I don't use my phone to access the Internet, or as an entertainment device, so can't comment on how well or poorly it performs in this regard. I will say that this is not the phone for the "Connected Generation". Unfortunately for folks like me (baby boomer), mobile phones being introduced today focus primarily on entertainment, with enterprise taking a back seat, or getting thrown off the bus entirely. I'm hoping that those marketing phones and air time take note of the fact that enterprise is a huge and monied market, and stop treating it like the red-haired stepchild of the mobile device market.
The Treo 750 offers very good performance with a new CPU, an improved camera, enhanced video playback, a more solid Bluetooth implementation in a lighter, slimmer
Overall a solid performer with some great features but the lack of new technology and flair let it down substantially
Best Device, Low Memory, need WiFi, Has MS Office,
The Palm brand was the first real attempt to make a Pocket PC truly user friendly. The 750 was the first attempt in adapting the functions of Windows Mobile with the Palm user ease. Although other products have since come out which are flasher, with bigger screens, etc, the Treo 750 was the first. It has a good combination of touch screen and full keyboard, while still fitting into your pocket. Plus it has great features, 3G WIFI, decent camera, etc.
This phone is a great choice for the person who wants all of the functions of a Pocket PC with the usability of a phone at a great price. Even though it is a few years old, it is still ahead of several of its competitors current offerings.
