Thumbs Down for Treo 700W

I am disappointed to read the early reviews for Treo 700W. I have this itch to switch my mobile phone (for no particular reason) for a while now and zoomed in on Treo after considering few others like Blackberry and the likes. I decided to wait for the new Treo 700W thinking it would be better than 650. But after reading the reviews of David Pogue and Walt Mossberg, I have decided not to buy the new 700W. Microsoft OS seems to have tied down the hands of Palm designers.

My itch is still there.. may be I will settle for Treo 650 or might ditch Treo and go to Blackberry

  1. I would vote for a Blackberry Any Day. It is Wonderful if you are looking at something business classic :) With no Cameras or funny stuff on it :)

    Is that a PDA.. I have this itch now to go for a PDA phone.. (for no particular reason..)

  4. Hmm.. Dont you feel Blackbery and Treo are difficult it carry (size)? May be is quiet convinent if you are travelling frequently. Else I guess the usage of most of the features (except for phone) would be less...

    yes, they are bulky but helps while on the road..

    Also, it is the itch thing.. I recently got a blackberry 7100 on ebay.. yet to start using it though..
