- The headset is compatible with the 7650 (so I'm only carrying one set of wires around)
- The battery lasts a LONG time (two days of very heavy use)
- The headset button cycles through the phone screen modes, and plugging in the headset enables the GSM module (a nice touch)
- Call management (including call waiting, conference setup and the like) is excellent.
- It feels very responsive and fast, only slightly slower than the Tungsten T
- You can actually run most of its software on older devices such as the 515 and the 505
- VersaMail works extremely well over GPRS (fast and usable, even with my humongous IMAP mailboxes). It also allows you to define a different data connection for each e-mail account, and switches between them automatically.
- We were able to swap photos, text notes and other OBEX-standard data over both IRDA and Bluetooth with the 7650 and the P800.
- It's bulky, heavy and made of plastic.
- The SD slot is on the side, making the Bluetooth SDIO card stick out awkwardly.
- Without the headset, it's completely useless as a phone.
- WebPro requires access to Palm's proprietary proxy server, which is not easy on some operators.
- VersaMail has an annoying bug - it forces your "From:" header to be "[email protected]", no matter what you input (if you go back, the settings are ignored).
- The SMS applet does not allow you to send to multiple recipients (which is a basic feature on most phones these days)
- It does not have MMS support (yet).
- 16MB of RAM is roomy for a Palm, but you have to wonder...
- The "ringtones" are laughable (but it is a Palm OS 4 device).
- Grafitti is in ROM, but it's not enabled (you can get an applet called "Grafitti Anywhere", and Jot comes on the CD)
- The WAP browser is not up to scratch - it's hardly been upgraded since it first came out nearly two years ago now. It also failed to deal with WAP Push properly, and does not allow you to select a default connection (which has to be distinct from other data services on my operator).
Well, it's a first generation device. It will get smaller (and, preferably, more metallic) over time, and the next model will have to have a proper microphone and speaker arrangement.
