"After "cool" effect wears off....."3.0 starson by fkjr2
Pros: Looks, screen, slider
Cons: Bulky, awkward, os
Summary: Well, I have been happy with the Treo 650 for a while now and decided to give the i730 a whirl due to its "cool" factor. I must say I am sticking to the Treo. The Samsung misses many areas if you want a tru PDA/Phone combo like I do. I just don't think this device is very phone friendly at all. Many obvious call features are missing - the treo has lots of icons and alert messages to inform you, but the Samsung makes you hunt through the OS to find info. I guess I feel the Palm OS is still more user friendly in that it offers easy notifications and no nonsense phone features that allow you to be very efficient. I felt the Samsung made you work harder to get the info you needed. Also, there are so many more apps for the Treo. I guess I was just taken in by the form factor - slider design - but in actuality, it's bulky and awkward to use this device. I will continue using the Treo until something better comes along, right now there is nothing that combines cellphone and PDA functions in such a nice sized device. Cheers.
