It is nevertheless easy to read at night and in the bright outdoors. I checked e-mails, looked at my schedule for the day and called someone with one hand. Because of the centrally located 5-way navigation pad, the Treo 700w is comfortable for both left handed and right handed people. The 700w comes with an expanded SDIO expansion card slot, which allows the addition of up to 2 GB of storage space.

Also, the flash ROM built-in the Windows buffs up things, which drastically reduces battery consumption, a good thing. If you’ve just spent 45 minutes typing in a proposal and your battery runs out, don’t pull your hair out, the data will be stored on your flash ROM.

What is polling? You can program your 700w to pull e-mail to your device on a regular basis. for example, every morning at 8 a.m., you can program your e-mails to be downloaded from your server to the Treo 700w device.
True one push e-mail is when you receive an e-mail, and that e-mail closest is sent to your Treo 700w device, that’s called push e-mail.

Last spring, Bill Gates announced the set afloat of Windows mobile 5.0 operating system. Now you can view: pod casts, photo blogs, download news RSS feeds, and stream live TV shows and music from your TV tuner enabled desktop PC at home to your Treo 700w. I did not find the 5.0 operating system to be buggy at all.
One Very Amazing Converged PDA/Phone
In the past, converged devices offered low-quality cell phone reception and call quality. Essentially, if you owned an older converged device, it amounted to a very expensive PDA and a bad cell phone. Many folks would have to carry around a regular cell phone just so they could make and receive cell phone calls.
The Treo 700w radio stack and Windows mobile 5.0 is completely revamped. Now there are less dropped calls. Plus, it offers higher call quality. With Verizon Wireless, my provider, I found the call clarity to be greatly improved compared to the Treo 650. I purposely made a three-way conference call to two associates of mine: one located in Sedona, Arizona and the other in Long Island, New York. During the complete conference call, I heard everyone just fine. The call did not end abruptly due to poor reception. Overall, the Treo 700w smart phone surpassed my expectations.
Thanks you Palm, the Verizon network and Windows mobile 5.0. Now I have mobile paradise. I hope you will too.
