    I first give my credits to Jack (JackNaylorPE) for posting most of links for reviews at:
    Palm Treo 700P Review Links
    There are many folks who love to get hands on latest gadget to impress others but fail to impress anyone. We have seen folks who came in with news about new treo, excited, with messed up pictures etc. The truth is not everyone is good at reviewing new products. We rely on pros for reviews and we treo freaks expect best from them but truth is there are very few pros in the game of reviewing that actually use Treo better than people visiting here at treocentral. I want to first give me review of the reviews for Treo700P and then I expect you to correct me, abuse me or kill me (j/k). Also I am excluding review from Mobility today folks who came HONEST close to what we wanted to know and SEE.
    The best review so far I can find, it still is not complete, is:
    Pc World's Melissa Perenson
    I love the fact that she mention send (answer) button and menu button issue which many reviewers claim is blessing. Ahhh come one folks...... Melissa review include two things I wanted to know like:

    "The new send button functions like the send button in plain vanilla cell phones--ie., press it when you've dialed a number, and it initiates the call. As critical as those functions are it, having a separate button from the phone navigational button is wasteful and redundant. This new send button occupies prime real estate, taking the place of the home button on the Treo 650. And many of its functions, including accessing the call log, dial pad, and recently-dialed calls, used to be ably handled by the dedicated phone navigational button, which now only takes you to the phone application (but, obviously, could have continued doing those functions). Meanwhile, the new position of the home button, way off to the far right of the unit, feels awkward and unfortunate, considering how integral this button is for day-to-day actions on the Treo.
    Aside from having its four navigation buttons keyed to the Palm OS's integrated apps, the Treo 700p's design differs from the 700w's in one other noticeable respect: On the lower row of the keyboard, the 700w has a second shift key on the right side, just like the Treo 650's keyboard; on the 700p, that second shift key becomes the menu button. "

    Also in her words "My one gripe with the new look: You can no longer change image or video resolution from the main interface itself--something I often do so I can send an image to a friend's phone (one which doesn't have nearly as much space as a smartphone). To do so now, you have to press the menu button, then change the resolution and press ok--two additional steps to do the same task."

    These things are very small but all these folks are unable to write a decent review for us treocentral lurkers:

    I want to find a way for Palm to send a new treo to shadowmite (how the hell i miss Treo God in my first edition )Perry, Gharrod, JackNaylorPE or Insertion, instead of other big name sites for Review (hey if I miss any pro here, I am still new, forgive me ). So they can have a thorough review for us geeks and will tell us what we REALLY want to know. Hell the way I see question lined up at Marcus Q&A sticky; we can all benefit from a detailed review from one of senior member here who really know what to tell us readers and answer all questions before everyone lined up for answers.

    Hey, I am just thinking out loud. Dont kill me before i get my 700P, ok??

    Technological superiority has never won a product battle. If that were the case we would all be flying in supersonic Concordes and using Apple computers.

    The key to winning the battle is a combination of price, convenience, marketing, sound business model and a bit of luck.

    What about after you get your 700p can we kill you then?

    J/K looks like a lot of work went into your post and I for one thank you for putting it all together, well, you and Jack.

    BTW as far as pros go you may want to mention (go back and edit it) shadowmite, since youre new, Ill tell ya hes the one that helped with the FAT32 hack on the T650

    Thanks again for a great post!

    I dare say its even sticky potential.
    ONE can be spelled as NEO.
