TOTAL USER RATINGS: 7
PROS: Beautiful screen Elegant OS - addictive to use Fast browser Physical QWERTY keyboard Synnergy & universal search feautres Non-intrusive notifications at the bottom of the phone Over the air software updates
CONS: Lack of removable storage Sub-par battery life
PROS: I bought into the hype when it first came out . Nothing good to say !
CONS: Small key board,Extended warranty does cover cracked screen . No where near the apps of I phone . They never backed up their product. Bad chinese battery and antenna . Offered me a razor phone as a replacment ! If you want an I phone get one . Dont jump on the phoney me too products . Do your homework .
PROS: 1. Easy addition of contacts, facebook sync, web access great, and screen is awesome. 2. The keyboard takes getting used to, but once you do it is easy to use. 3. The number of apps and features is growing every day. 4. The software now allows for LED notification. 5. Gmail and google scheduling could not be easier. Gmail comes through instantly, just like the Blackberry. 6. The scheduling in google is better than my lotus notes. I bought a program that syncs my work Lotus Notes schedule with the google and it is perfect. Then it syncs with my phone. Nice when something just works. If louisd would have read any reviews, he would have known that WebOS is completely different from the old PalmOS, so I would take that review lightly.
CONS: Speaker a little soft and vibrate needs to be stronger. The vibrate issue could be changed in the programming to last longer and I am hoping for that. Takes a long time to start up. No video. It has the capability for video, so I am looking forward to having it soon.
PROS: great, large screen multitasking rocks the cards are great contacts easily downloadable
CONS: battery? some word and excel stuff doesn't function
PROS: Compact, fast, nice graphics, fits your hand better than iPhone.
CONS: Does not sync with Mac desktop applications without Missing Sync. Missing Sync claims to sync with MS Entourage but does not in our configuration. Mark/Space has minimal online support that is nearly impossible to find on the web (must use desktop help link). Mark/Space support takes 4-5 days to get an appointment - if you pay for support. I was advised by Palm that the pre syncs with online databases like google etc. The keyboard is tiny and requires fingernails. We purchased this to replace a very buggy Palm Treo to avoid a learning curve but the operating system is nothing like the Treo. Navigating non system apps requires lots of flipping through icons.
PROS: True multitasking ability, love the cards synergy rocks! You should try it to see what I mean.
CONS: hmmmm..probably the battery
PROS: Surfs reasonably well when the images show up. Small.
CONS: Lost functions by "upgrading" from a Treo 700p: No video capability No advanced calculator No selection of Apps No quick screen jumping with multiple input options of pen, finger, D-key. Now must fumble finger screen to jump to hyper links. No memory card slot. Flaky surfing with multiple screen errors. No rapid opening of apps, must wait at least 2 secs. No direct access of apps, must first click Open Apps, then hunt for one from screen to screen. Lame and unnecessary. Should look like iPhone - with apps on first screen. No instant access to keys for input, must slide out keyboard. All sizzle, no steak as far as functionality goes. All the geeks commenting about how slick the WebOS is are focused on the tech and not the usefulness or lack of, of the device.
