It does, in fact... It's nice to see them going the way of standardized connectors. No more proprietary data cables! You may be on to something with the PC. Even better, it has a serial IR port. Now all I need is an IR port in the tail connected to the serial port on the PC and I could do wireless PC map switches... :evilaugh:sheepofblue said:I looked at such a beast casually in an airport. Doesn't it have a USB connector? If so you could set it up for emergency PCIII map reloading also :thumb:
Yeah I cannot get that, PalmOS was one of the few reasons I still had thought about one of those....but, that aside - the Treo still looks like a piece of toast to me or something...its look has always been odd to me.ND4SPD said:The Windoz based Treo's are pretty solid. Quite a few clients have them as does my boss, with no complaints. But, there's something wrong about running 'doz on a Palm device :idunno:
completely awesome...BladeRider said:Just bought a Motorola Q last monday when it released, but it is only available through Verizon. This phone freakin rocks, after 5 years of various Blackberry devices Windows Mobile 5.0 is a huge step up. Plus being Windows based it is easy to tweak the OS, Verizon EVDO is really fast also, I tethered it to my laptop and I get 500KB Down 150KB up, not bad for a mobile phone.
The Q was my first choice if I went Vz...their EVDO stuff sounds killer, but for me, the 5% more coverage I get with Vz, versus their old school sim-less technology meaning im stuck with that 1 phone 24/7....the convenience factor of the phone won.BladeRider said:Just bought a Motorola Q last monday when it released, but it is only available through Verizon.

I had a TMobile MDAII in Germany and had the same cell connectivity issues (WM2003). If I went inside a building that caused me to lose my signal, it took an act of God to get the device to work at all. I spent more time doing hard resets and reinstalling programs than I want to remember. I ended up turning the flight mode on before going into buildings I knew would not get a signal. My SX66 (MDAIII) with WM2003SE doesn't have this issue anymore. Seems like WM5.0 brought back those issues. That's nice to know since I was thinking of installing 5.0 on mine. Think I'll wait until 5.0SE comes out.SomeStrangeGuy said:Top 3 things I don't like:
-1- Instability(??) - Not sure if its hardware or software..I just put a new build on this last night and it's been cool since. But...prior to I was having issues with the unit losing service in areas I would expect it to..but not 'lighting up' properly when it would return to service. IE: I'd basically need to be next to a tower and let it do it's own thing, and when it was damn good and ready I could use it again. Before the update the apps would also get very sticky when the device wasn't in cell service. I thought that odd...who cares? I just want to look at a spreadsheet? But sometimes it would get to the point where a soft reset (once a hard) would need to be performed to get it to come back if I was in a bad service area. I also had issues with the mic sound quality doing weird things the first few days I had it. Then it mysteriously stopped, and reoccured again last night for an hour or two after the fw update...now its fine again(??).
-2- Camera - why even offer it with one if it's just going to be a POS camera?!?!
-3- Screen sensitivity - feels like I need to pound the thing sometimes to get it to take. I guess thats a good thing, but it bugs me. Again not a major issue here, just nitpicking. Like the damn MiniSD card...which I won't give it's own number, but I had to go buy a new M-sd card just for the phone when I have other regular SD cards here that I could use.
Also between Exchange/Outlook, PocketPuTTY (beta), Agile running GoogleChat and AIM, this thing is hooked up :thumb: I'm liking it so far and would give it 2 thumbs up at this time. :thumb::thumb:
