Technology section of Wall Street Journal publishes Treo 600 review
Posted on 19-Sep-2003 08:11 | Filed under: News



"I've been carrying a Sprint Treo 600 around for a couple of weeks and I love it. It's a great phone, an excellent mobile e-mail terminal and a full-fledged Palm-compatible PDA. I prefer it to any RIM BlackBerry model I have tested, and it blows away any of the PDA/phones based on Microsoft's Pocket PC operating system.

As good as the original Treo was, it had several flaws. First, it looked more like a PDA than a phone. Second, its battery life was barely adequate, at 2.5 to three hours of talk time. Third, its screen was too dim to be seen well outdoors. And fourth, its memory couldn't be expanded.

The Treo 600 resolves all of those concerns. It's narrower and there's no longer a lid to protrude, so the device looks much more natural and phone-like against the ear. Also, battery life has been drastically improved. The Sprint model will get four to five hours of talk time and the model for the other carriers, which use a lower-power radio technology, will get six to seven hours."
