PCMag got their mitts on a Treo 700w. From the sounds of it, the new Treo 700w has taken a couple steps backwards and a few steps forward. First off, the 650’s 320×320 screen has been replaced by a 240×240 dimmer version in the 700. Also, its QWERTY keys have gone from round to square reportedly increasing typing errors. PCMag also noted that the shortage of RAM caused the Treo 700w to crash. On the positive, the 700w rocks an EVDO modem providing 5-7 time faster data rates and a new 1.3 megapixel camera. Probably the neatest feature is the Treo 700’s ability to fire back a text message on a user cancelled incoming call.

PCMag gave the 700w a 3/5.

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
