Hoping to continue the success Palm found with the Centro, the Treo 800w is one of the most full-featured smartphones on the market.

I cant believe you didn't list battery life as a separate "con". If you have an exchange server you will not get more than 3 hours out of this thing.

Ok so how can a plus be "Good size and professional looks" and then in the very next column it has listed as a con "It’s still on the big side, and the design language is dated " you really need to make up your mind.

Will the Palm Treo 800 be available through The Verizon Network? How much different is this VS. The Palm Treo Centro
