Treo Comparison Chart: Updated & Permalinked

A quick note…  Following my recent Treo Family Comparison Chart post, a Treonaut [thank you Stefan] suggested that we keep the chart up-to-date and also give it its own unique URL.

I’m glad to say that we’ve now done exactly that by adding the chart at www.treonauts.com/treocomparison.php, updating it with the latest data and also making it faster to load by using text instead of the previous large graphic file.

I hope that this will continue to help existing and prospective Treonauts make a more informed upgrade or purchase decision.  Additionally, please note that you can keep updated daily or weekly with the Treonauts Newsletter and/or also discuss your thoughts and experiences at the Treonauts Forum.

Treonauts always have the latest information…

PocketTunes does streaming audio on the Palm 650. I have personally done it on longish bike rides (yes I know it's gratuitous, but why not? (-: )

Also, dial-up networking is listed as "TP" (third party) for the 650, but isn't it built into the firmward now? This is BT DUN, isn't it? Maybe I'm confused - then the criticism is more about the labelling for that row than for the info

This page will be a great resource now. Many of my friends know I track these things so I can just send them here when they ask me now.

And I'll just have to wait for whenever the higher-data-speed, 1.3+MP, 4GB+ SD card, next-gen palm-based treo comes out, which is the only reason I pay attention...

750w phone row says EVDO/EDGE when it should be UMTS/EDGE (possible HSDPA)

Y, should be TP for streaming audio and video for the 650 (Ptunes, Kinoma, Coreplayer)

PDF reader should probably be TP for the 650 as well, even though PalmPDF is free (the 650 only came with Docs2Go 7 which did not include PDF viewing).

Two things about your chart. One is that yours is the only site that says the Treo 680 will have IR. Not even Palm's site says that it does. One other thing is that the whole line of Windows Mobile based Treos will sync with a Macintosh via the 3rd Party ("TP") app, "The Missing Sync for Windows Mobile". You may want to update your chart accordingly.

Question: shouldn't that need to be 750V instead of W ?

@ Rex re IR I checked this page:

It mentions IR in the Wireless section.

Excellent. That's new to the Palm site since they first announced the 680. In this case I'm glad to be wrong, as I'm one of those people that still uses IR to beam contacts, etc. Thanks for the heads up!

Thanks for all your input Treonauts! The chart has now been updated again to reflect all of these comments and we'll continue to refine it as more information becomes available.

Cheers, A.

Why not include about Treo 600? I know it is out of date and not sold any more by Palm/handspring, but it is still largely available on eBay stores.

Good chart and break down of key categories but I think the network options I think need review.

700p support EvDO and is capable of up to 3.6M (burst) but I avg 700-891kbps downloads

700wx same

680 is UMTS capable with download speeds of 300. Since its PalmOS, it is unable to do the faster HSDPA. Although havent tried 680, other UMTS devices like Treo 750v see an average 274

750v on GSM supports UMTS (avg 274 kbps) this time but hear of a HSDPA firmware update in Q1.
