Hi there. First post here. I currently have a Treo 650 and have been offered a Treo700WX or Samsung i-325 by Telecom. I have had 4 Treo's and although they are a little bulky have found them great to use. I use a lot of the features of the Treo and run my business with the planner etc.

So I have both phones at the moment with the Samsung on a 7 day trial and my old Treo. After the 7 days I will have to keep the Samsung. I like the Samsung due to the fact that it is Global, thinner and lighter. I like the layout of the Treo, the Calender/Planner and the text layout which looks like a chat thread (is the Samsung like this?). I don't travel internationally a lot but did go to Brazil last month and it was annoying that the Treo didn't work so to have that option would be nice.

So has anyone had both and any opinions on whats better? is there any disadvantage between Palm OS and Windows OS?

thanks for any advice Smile

Interesting question on Palm OS vs Windows Mobile - both these devices are Windows Mobile.

The Treo 700wx runs Windows Mobile Pocket PC and the Samsung i325 runs Windows Mobile Smartphone.

I would stick with the Samsung i325, because it is running a new OS and in my experience (I have one now) it's faster and more reliable than the Treo 700wx (which I had before as well).

Wow quick reply thanks. Is there anything you miss on the Treo? Does the text reply's show as a chat thread? I have the phone but it's not connected yet so can't tell?

No, you don't get threaded SMS on the Samsung - but I don't miss much because I live on e-mail, not SMS.

Seriously, I hate the square screen on Treo devices...
