Don't get me wrong the Treo is a great PocketPC Phone. One of the best I've used and I've been using them since 2003 [2002 for pure PocketPC]. I'm really happy with the 750v and I expect it to last me at least through half the year or even more it's just a great solid PocketPC phone but the geek in me wants to experiment and tinker. The problem is it seems there are fewer developers tinkering around with the 750v compared to say an HTC branded device [this includes the re-branded/carrier branded ones]. I'm not savvy enough to cook my own ROM. I might just have to buy another device to do my tinkering hehe [you do know they have WM6 Crossbow ROMs being cooked for older models]. Maybe a Wizard [dopod 838, i-mate K-JAM, et. al] again?
Right, I've been surfing a bit [hampered by my uber slow connection] and noticed that most new Nokia mobiles are being touted as Multi-media phones now Nokia is adding 3.5mm jacks to their mobiles. HTC should get a clue and scrap their ExtUSB initiative and stick with normal audio jacks. If HTC wants to enter the consumer market they should really make it easier for consumers to use their devices and of course to add accessories.
I sold off my TyTN yesterday and bought a cheapo Nokia for my Globe SIM. It was fun while it lasted but I think I will be ok with the 750v as my main device. The funny thing is the case I ordered from Brando just arrived. Hmm maybe I can give it to my friend who owns an 838pro. I got a metal case for the 750v [actually it's for the palm Treo 680 but fits the 750v] it really adds bulk and weight to the 750v. I think I'll return it and wait for the silicone version.
Ok I probably shouldn't have bought this PocketPC phone so soon but I couldn't help it. Anyway I've been lusting over the Treo form factor for ages and finally gave in. The 750v is the first palm device running WM5 that I could use (the 700w and 700wx are EVDO). I must say I'm really impressed with the palm customizations to WM5. I'll get to those later. I sold my S310 and got the Treo to replace it. I wonder what I'll buy to replace the TyTN? Or I could hold on to the TyTN a bit longer... However 2 PocketPC phones seem like overkill to me. Anyway let's go on to the review.

Steve Jobs is wandering into the mobile phone market. I'm sure you've all heard/read about the iPhone which was announced a day back [?]. I was discussing the iPhone with a friend the other day, and now after years and years of rumours it is on it's way slated for a June '07 release in the US. I'm sure this device will be a success Apple has been doing good things as of late but it's not for me [not yet atleast].
What's good: Apple Design [um this is subjective at most] Great Screen [would have been better if it was VGA though] 8Gb of Storage
What's bad: Non-removable Battery [WTF? Is this for real?] No hardware keys [I've tried using PDA phones without hardware keys] Cingular only [hope this changes] No high speed WAN [UMTS with HSDPA will be included in a 2nd version soon] The finish looks like a finger print magnet and looks like it's easily scratched [iPod finish?] Steep price [um never stopped me before hehe]
Just got back in from China! Whew! That was a tiring trip... I guess I should turn in early and get some shut eye. Just about finished with the first draft of my 750v review [hopefully I can post it mid next week]
Sold my HTC S310 yesterday and got a Treo 750v. I would like to geek out and do a review but I've to go on a business trip tomorrow. So I just loaded it up with my usual apps, surprisingly most my apps work on the 240 x 240 pixel screen albeit with some scrolling. Hopefully I get some free time and get to finish my review soon. Anyway I have to go and pack for my trip... catch you guys next time...
Still experiencing ultra slow internet... which is a bummer really. I don't have work till the 8th and am just hanging around the house [I did go to V-mall to check on our kiosk] and getting some sleep. It's really boring not doing anything so I've decided to HARD RESET my TyTN and re-install everything. My case still hasn't arrived and I've sent an e-mail to the merchant about it. It must have been delayed with all the holiday mail and stuff being sent. Oh well. I also bought a couple of apps for my PocketPC and Smartphone. I was looking to buy a Treo 750v to play around with but had no luck locating a brand new one yesterday [wasn't looking really hard though] I guess it must be a sign that I should keep my TyTN and S310 for a bit longer :P
