Default Palm Treo 750 versus 8310

Please Login to Remove!

Work have asked me to consider Pam Treo 750 as it supports activsynch. Would prefer Blackberry 8310 and would like to hear views as to which is better and does the activsynch on a Pal Treo make any difference.

Thanks

both have there advantages. The Treo 750 is nice, its a bit big. The Curve is very small and light compared to the 750.
The battery life is better on the Curve.
The OS is more stable on the Curve.
The 8310 has built in GPS.

The treo supports 3G.

you have to weigh your needs with your wants. If my company told me they would only support active sync, I would choose a Blackjack 2.

I always flip back and forth between a WMx device and a BB. ( i can have both ) and it usually comes down to the BB winning. It is just more stable. I use this example;
when I travel away from the home office, I always make sure that I have my BB. The WMx devices are fun, but not to dependable.

Well said!

I have a WM device and really only swap to use it when a customer needs a WM demo. Otherwise I'm on my BB

I looked at Palms before deciding on a Curve and what won me over was the reliability. I had heard one too many reviews of WM just not working properly or crashing. I wasnted something that was reliable and now that I have the Curve I have no regrets

I heartily agree with the above statement. It's amazing how all the Treo users in my company seem to think multiple reboots of their phone during the day is a normal occurrence!

In my three years of using three different BlackBerries, only recently did I have a situation where my device went down due to a corrupt OS file. With the help of this wonderful community of users, I was able to recover the device, and restore my last backup within an hour!

Thanks for all your input. Even with the extra cost I think Blackberry is the way to go until the others catch up on reliability and battery life.

I've heard a lot about the BB OS crashing less than the Treo, but I haven't heard any good/bad comments on any of the other software features such as the calendar?

Does the BB have a monthly, weekly, daily view options for the calendar?

What about any other software that comes with either models- any that are useful that the other model may not have?

Hardware differences, besides one big one that I can see - the BB 8310 (the one I'm leaning towards getting) for instance has a 2MP camera and the Treo750 is only 1.5MP.

Any other advice, suggestions, comments, complaints, just no whines! thx

To answer your calendar question, yes. The BB does have daily, weekly and monthly views of the calendar.

I don't know if any software differences between the BB models I belive they are the same but I could be wrong

I always go back to my BB. I can have both as well and usually get a WM device every now and then when the pretty new gadget comes out but always end up going back to the BB and kicking myself for spending so much money on a WM device.
