Reviews summary

Based on 2 reviews

Patient Palm fans have some wishes fulfilled with the new Palm 800w, including WiFi and GPS, two items lacking in prior models and an often mentioned disappointment among Palm users.

The 800w shows that Palm is taking the challenge of playing catch-up seriously. While their new OS does not make an appearance in this model, it does include: Windows Mobile 6.1, EV-DO Rev A speeds, integrated WiFi radio, Bluetooth 2.0 with A2DP (allowing user to listen to music or make/receive calls), A-GPS receiver, microSD card slot, and more.

There is also a capable 2MP camera and a large, 1.7 inch 320 x 320 high resolution display. All this and weighing in at only 5 ounces (4.41 x 2.28 x 0.73 inches).

Keep in mind that Palm offers plenty of 3rd party software, too, so you can build on this fine device.

The Palm 800w is a sign that the company is moving in the right direction and producing quality products people want. If you are looking for a smart phone, you’d be smart to check this one out.

The all-in-one micro-USB port and poor loudspeaker were also a disappointment. Based on these factors, we at MobileBurn.com give the Sprint Palm Treo 800w a 'Not Recommended' score, pending a firmware update that would address the... Full review


It does all of its jobs reasonably well

from Engadget

There's nothing essentially wrong with the Treo 800w -- it does all of its jobs reasonably well, and doesn't exhibit any red flags that would cause concern. On the other hand, it doesn't do a single thing really well, and that's a problem given the options which are available (or will be available soon) from competitors.

At the end of the day, Palm has made a fiercely middle-of-the road device -- it's not attractive, its software isn't unique, and the phone does little to separate itself from the ever-growing pack. With the resources and user-base the company has, we keep expecting... Full review
