Write, choose text pen: Handspring dispensed with the Palm OS smart phone Treo 180 g on the keyboard.
Handspring lets you choose: the Treo 180 “without g” therefore offers a small keyboard, which is 180 g pure Palm Treo. The “g” stands for graffiti, the proven handwriting recognition of the Palm PDAs. Xonio tells you whether this concept with the pen is suitable for everyday use and what are the weaknesses of the Treo 180 g.
Palm OS Phone
The Handspring Treo 180 g is a Palm PDA of OS, you make phone calls, surf, can send text and e-mail messages.
Facts & figures
With 146 grams of the Treo 180 g among the lightweights among the Smart phones device. The competitors bring significantly more on the scale. Also size and format (130 x 70 x 24 mm) make the flounder a handy companion. The downside: The grayscale display with a resolution of 160 x 160 pixels is somewhat scarce with a 50 x 50 mm. Handspring promises two and a half hours talk time and (skinny) 60 hours stand by time in mobile mode.
The manufacturer’s recommended price: 599 euro.
What your Treo do, decide about you: 16 megabyte memory available for data and applications available. The OS is Palm OS version 3.5.2H4.0. Compared hardly cuts need to be made to a purebred mobile: only profiles and voice dialing are missing, for the ring tones, the Treo is different just two volumes. For this, vibrating alert and a good spokesman for free are available.
The integration between the phone and the PDA functions would certainly improve.Contacts can be called directly from the phone book. But the SIM card phone book can be copied only in the speed dial list, which includes 50 entries. The entries can be no move in the contacts. Too bad notes directly as a SMS or email can be send. Really missing anyway: We have nothing in the facilities.
The Treo 180 g is equipped with an Internet browser (Blazer) and an E-Mail client (one touch). For the appropriate settings, Handspring offers a small configuration program on the enclosed CD. It worked in the test without any problems, after fifteen minutes we were online. Only at 9.6 kbit/s, because rapid transmission techniques such as HSCSD or GPRS, the Treo it – has a real weakness. It communicates the smart phone flexible in its direct surroundings: via USB (cable included), serial or infrared.
Those who know Palm OS, cope immediately with the Treo. The safe use of the pen succeeds after a short acclimatization. The user understands the simple menu navigation for Palm OS, he finds all the features intuitive. If you only want to call, you can leave the pen. The number pad on the display and the quick select buttons are large enough to respond reliably to thumb pressure.
Hardly was the Treo in the Newsroom, he was gone again. A colleague grabbed secretly, silently and quietly for two days the Smart phone.
This is significant: the Treo 180 g raises the “must-have I have”-Reflex and also in everyday keeps what he promises. The balanced Smart phone demonstrates real weaknesses either PDA or phone features. And also intuitive to operate. Phone and PDA functions were better integrated. But there is a real minus only for very short battery life and lack of a rapid data transfer technology.
