Your first download should probably be Opera Mini which at least scores a C compared to the iPhone's A-.
    I agree with browser, but I never had a faster Palm. I had no lag with Treo Pro with 2500 contacts. I know some others are reporting though so I am not sure what the deal is.

    I'm not a Treo person, however the best thing of this contest is that we can just follow Rene posts and learn as much as him.

    Is that different from Opera Mini in nature? I ruled out Opera Mini immediately over security concerns, since I don't like server side pre-rendering and the breaking of SSL encryption that it entails.

    I've flirted with Opera Mobile, but I was actually surprised that IE was better than I expected. The graphics looked good, and while it absolutely destroyed CSS (which, to be fair, desktop IE does as well ), text was still highly readable.

    My video review is up now, with my IE explorations!

    Check out Iris--I had the same question, and here was the email response to my query:

    Yes, Iris Browser is device-only. It does not use any server-side technology. It is very similar in design to that of the iPhone Safari in some ways.

    Thanks Q -- will do!

    My next challenge: I listen to podcasts *a lot*. What's the best way for me to a) get a lot of podcasts (i.e. all the SPE casts, most of TWiT and PixelCorps, GDGT, Geek Brief, WebbAlert, Revision3, etc.) onto the Treo, and b) listen/watch them once they're on?

    Can I sync with iTunes? Can I drag and drop onto the memory card? Should I stream instead? (Bonus for not tethering, natch!)

    Hi again Rene,

    I recommend using SyncTunes to sync a memory card with iTunes.

    If it doesn't suit your needs, you should try MediaSync

    Podcasts are on Kinoma Play.
    Mmmm SkyFire now in the UK... interesting...

    EDIT: No forget it. SkyFire really is balls after all. Slow and buggy and it doesn't format text very well. It also cannot accept Japanese text. But mostly slow.
    Iris has more potential I think but isn't ready and browsing without a proxy is too slow over H/3G

    i prefer kinoma for podcast.

    Okay, so if I want to get Kinoma, what's the highest tech way of getting that?

    On iPhone or Google Android, there was an App Store/Market icon and I could just download and install over-the-air.

    What's the closest to that experience I can get on the Treo?

    Just go to kinoma.com then. Download the CAB file from there and run it. No PC required.

    I mean you could download Handango's Go shop application and get software that way but you could also repeatedly slam your balls in a car door until they sit in the passenger seat all by themselves.

    Yep, downloading CAB file using IE Mobile (or other browsers) is the simplest OTA way to install apps on WindowsMobile. For those used to PalmOS it's similar to downloading/having installation PDB files.

    I so prefer CAB files for installing WindowsMobile apps, that I don't bother with EXE version, even when I download from my PC. I just save the CAB files and copy them over to my SD card. Very easy for me to re-install the apps from the SD card, without going back to my PC.

    Of course with the OTA d/l and installation of CAB files, you don't have someone dictating what you can and cannot have on your device (you hear that Steve?)

    Awesome, thanks much!

    Need a game now. What's the best looking, best playing, funnest, most drool-worthy game I can get to really show off the Treo Pro?

    Again, bonus points if I can get it via direct IE download

    Double bonus if it's Halo! (Common, Games for Windows Mobile, right?!)

    Downloaded Kinoma. I chose the free version since I only have the phone a week. Installation was super easy. However, the activation process was a *very* unpleasant surprise.

    Opened the app, and not sure how to get, for example, the TreoCentral TreoCast up and running? What's the best way to do that?

    I was *amazed* to see iDisk support built in. I had the latest iPhone Live! podcast mix up so I tried to see if I could listen via the Treo, but when I hit the button, it said that was only available in the paid version.

    Why's the button active in the free version then? Or am I missing something?

    Dieter RAVES about this app, so I must be totally missing something, right?

    Setting up my BT was a breeze.

    Yesterday, however, I got my first phone call over BT. I hit the button to answer, but no sound came out (I'd called using it before, so I knew it worked).

    I picked up the phone and found the radio toggle screen (where you can turn WiFi, BT, etc. on and off, black with little on/off switches) just redrawing itself over and over and over and over again in an endless loop.

    No button did anything to stop it. I couldn't even power it off, and it looked like the battery was depleting at a rapid pace.

    I yanked the battery out and put it back in, and everything started back up fine.

    Is anyone familiar with that, or was the Treo Pro just getting some revenge on me for my Zero Punctuation shenanigans?

    Dieter also uses the full version, so yeah, you are missing something.

    It's just like Quicktime having all the QuickTime Pro buttons to nag the user.

    There is a known bug with BT call answering on the Pro and a patch is available from the Palm website.
