First Smart Phone

Couldn't really ask for more
I upgraded from a Sanyo 8100 to my first ever smart phone and I have to admit, wow! I love how small (height and width) the device is compared to the other sprint smart phones currently on the market. Only the HTC Touch is smaller, but I wanted to have a keypad vs one on screen. I think having a physical keypad has a lower learning curve than a virtual/electronic keypad.
The phone does seem to be a bit bulky (thick) but I think that actually adds to the quality feel of the device in my hands. I've heard complaints about how small the keypad is, but I don't have any real complaints about it. the phone also has a cheap plastic back for the battery case.
This phone is also great because my company has Exchange server and I can get direct push of my e-mails on my phone! Now I can walk around and look important all day.
The speakerphone is good quality too. I also now get reception in places I didn't with my previous phone.
All in all, I'm pleased. The best part is the value for only $99! ( The HTC touch was $250) Good job Palm and Sprint.Design 8/10Features 8/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 9/10Value for money 10/10

Just Got Mine
Just picked this baby up at the Sprint Store (they sold it two days early). I loved it when Sprint tech support kept asking me how I got it early:) The phone is very nice for $99 (traded in ppc6700) it has evdo, push e-mail, palm os is nice, and my slingbox mobile looks great. Coming from the slow, big box and crappy wm5 I'm not looking back, thanks palm for showing me the light.Design 8/10Features 9/10Sound Quality 9/10Signal Strength 8/10Value for money 10/10
