Review: Palm Treo 800w
I'm prejudiced. I find Windows Mobile a clunky, over-wrought, inelegant smartphone mobile OS compared to Palm, BlackBerry, even Symbian. But I understand that Windows Mobile has a legion of fans. For Windows Mobile admirers, the addition of the irresistible how-did-I-live-without-it GPS function, a solid 2 MP camera, threaded messaging, and WiFi connectivity, even if it is out-performed by the iPhone 3G's WiFi, bring the Treo into the modern age. For me, OS aside, the short battery life would push me to consider alternatives. But if you're a Sprint subscriber and a Treo fan, the 800w is superior in all other ways to the 700w.

The device is tiny and features an aluminum chassis with Gorilla Glass panels front and back.
