Palm Treo 750 Review

Palm Treo 750

Palm Treo 750 Introduction

When Palm announced that it would be introducing a Windows Mobile handset in late 2005, there was a collective gasp as the company that had always before seemed to want to fly in the face of convention had finally bowed to it.

It was not long after the introduction of that first Windows Mobile Treo, the 700w on Verizon, that people started to say that it had done something with the Windows Mobile platform that other makers had not done: created a usable device that simply met the needs of its users.

The follow-up model, the Treo 700wx, addressed issues with memory and performance. However, there was still not a Windows Mobile Treo that ran on GSM networks, shutting out most countries. Then in the fall of 2006 Palm introduced the Treo 750v ('v' for Vodaphone) in Europe and most knew that it was a matter of time before the Palm and Windows Mobile formula would be spread to other parts of the world.

This brings us to the here and now. The Palm Treo 750 was released on Cingular in January and for the most part has had a lukewarm reception. Whether it is because of the price, or similar feature set to the previous 700w and 700wx models, the 750 doesn't seem to have garnered the press that the other Windows Mobile Treos have.

And maybe that is a good thing. The 750 on Cingular is a solid device with very few issues. However, at the end of the day it is a smartphone that tries to do a lot of things, and does only a few things well.

Let's dig into the device and how I've used it over the past month so that you can see where this opinion on the 750 has been made.
