In this videoview I will have a more detailed look to the features of Palm's Treo 500 Windows Mobile Standard smartphone.
Like Vodafone's Palm Treo 500v, the Palm Treo 500 is featuring a thumb-keyboard on the front as well as a 2 megapixel camera and loudspeaker on the back. Furthermore it features the Windows Mobile typical QVGA screen and on the left side two volume keys as well as a shortcut which launches the Internet Explorer Mobile. Under the battery, you find the place for the SIM card as well as for the memory card which means memory cards cannot removed/exchanged while the devices is turned on.

However, while the Palm Treo 500v was heavily Vodafone customized, especially through the Vodafone TPP Start menu and Home screen layout, the Palm Treo 500 is a more generic Windows Mobile 6 Standard Smartphone, featuring Microsoft's standard Home screen layouts only but also including Microsoft's Windows Live Messenger service and Office Mobile but also Google Maps Mobile and a streaming audio and video player.

Somewhat irritating is the fact that Palm isn't using a self-developed camera user interface but Microsoft's basic camera application. Also, the camera cannot be launched through a shortcut from the Start menu but through the Pictures and Videos application only which makes it somewhat hard to use, especially for snapshots.

Cheers ~ Arne
