The following is a short personal perspective mini-review from one of our readers here, Mike Jevin.
It comes down to a personal perspective; for me, I replaced the Treo with the Q (after 2 months) because my primary function is a Phone first, PDA second. If Verizon Wireless would allow my Motorola RAZR to sync with Outlook, I would never have bought either one to begin with, but that’s a whole other issue.
I’ve had PDA’s since 1999 (phones long before that), starting with Compaq’s Aero 2100 and on with a few IPaq series handhelds, but never a single unit until the Treo 700W. Don’t get the wrong idea, as a PDA, the Treo is great. But like most PDA’s, it takes two hands to do just about anything worthwhile, whereas, the Q is one-handed operation (critical while driving).
There are many professional reviews available on the Web giving a Buyer all the Pros/Cons for each unit, but for most buyers, it should come down to a personal preference. Like I stated above, for me, it’s a Phone first, PDA second. It just so happens the Q handles both, perfectly.
One more “point” I’ll like to make: Reviewers state “the Q’s battery life stinks”.
There is a good reason. You’re always doing something on it, so buy extra batteries!!
Thanks for your perspective Mike!
