The Palm Treo 800w...now that's more like it!!
Attention all you Sprintheads [and I mean that in the most respectful way possible ;)]:
Yesterday Sprint announced the release of a new phone: The Palm Treo 800w.
As far as looks go, I don't see how it looks much different from the Palm Centro, which was released late last year.
But it seems to be pretty cool in functionality, boasting the ability to process at broadband speed, or the same speed you would see if using a computer. It has a touchscreen (of course), QWERTY keypad, A2DP Bluetooth technology, GPS, and Windows Mobile, to name a few. The camera is 2.0 megapixels with flash and a video recorder. It also offers Voicemail controls.
People are speculating that this is yet ANOTHER substitute for the iPhone. And with a price tag of $249 after discounts and rebates with a two-year contract, I think maybe this phone may be worth the plunge (after all, Treos are rather dependable and let's face it, they've been out for a while so they know what they're doing by now).
