Palm Treo 755p review + GIVEAWAY!

Palmtreo755What brand comes to mind when you think PDA?  Palm.  Palm is the pioneer of the PD
A industry and several years ago took the PDA to a whole new level with the Treo SmartPhone / mobile computing line.

The Palm Treo 755p seamlessly combines a full-featured mobile phone with email, an organizer,
messaging and web access capabilities in a compact yet easy-to-use device. In addition, Palm smartphones feature
a built-in QWERTY keyboard for fast and efficient data input. The keyboard, five-way navigation button and other
design features make it possible for you to get more done-in fewer steps and with just one hand. Palm smartphones
are lightweight and small enough to fit in your pocket but won’t get lost in your favorite diaper bag or handbag. 

Complete with a comprehensive calendar function, email capability, web browsing, and a 1.3 megapixel camera with video capture, our mom testers were very pleased with the number of functions packed into this compact device.  The camera was loved by our testers and has better picture quality than the iPhone, previously reviewed on TheMommyInsider.com. The zoom function allows for easy close-ups and the brightness level, and exposure can be changed which is a unique feature as far as I am aware.  The Treo 755p’s camera can very well act as your primary camera if desired. You won’t have to remember to grab your camera before your child’s soccer game anymore! If you take a lot of photographs and videos you can add your miniSD™ memory card for up to 4GB of memory so you won’t run out of memory while shooting a video or a series of photographs.

Doctor’s appointments, sports games, after school activities, and play dates can quickly be added to the Treo’s calendar with a minimal number of steps which is good for busy moms.  Not only that, but you can also write notes, add/edit tasks, and record voice memo’s on the Treo 755p.

When navigating the Treo 755p via the 2.5" full color touch screen your kids will be convinced that you are the caption of the ‘mother ship’ (aka Treo 755p).  A stylus is included for those who appreciate old school technology.  Integrated blue tooth allows for hands-free conversations while feeding the baby, knitting, or bathing the kids.

The built in QWERTY keyboard may change your relationship with your significant other forever.  The ability to send ‘creative’ text messages to your partner instantly will please him/her to no end.  Text messages like this are stored in a threaded chat view so you can access the history of an entire chat in a story like fashion. You’ll be ‘texting’ like the pro’s in no time.

The Palm Treo 755p has a lot of wonderful features that are sure to make your life as a parent a little easier.

Go to the Palm website to learn more about the Treo 755p or check your cell carrier for availability and pricing.
