    The Pre announcement is really taking a toll on this section of the discussion boards. I think I'm going to get a Sprint Treo Pro and wait on the Pre awhile. I use Exchange, Hotmail and Mesh. I do love the Zen of Palm though. I went back to my Centro from a Sprint Diamond before the 30 days were up. It was just that much more functional for me. I have been using Palm since Nov. 04 with the 650. I will probably get a Pre but not the first day.

    Yup, it's pretty quiet since the Pre announcement.

    Weird, isn't it? I mean I know the Pre is big news but there is just nothing on the Pro for Sprint. No stories, no chatter.

    I'd still like to see a spec list and some info on the ROM at least! I can't believe we don't have that yet.

    Hopefully something will come out soon to wet our appetites.

    Weird that it only has aGPS--everyone was expecting full, standalone GPS. Hmm, well we'll see when we get one.

    dude...nsxprime is gonna be totally pissed...lol

    I'm a little confused. Under Key Features:

    · 512MB program memory (DDR) 256 non-volatile memory (300MB of user storage)

    Under Unique Features:

    · 128MB program memory (DDR) and 256 non-volatile memory (175MB of user store)


    Which is it?
  14. #14  
    It very well may have standalone, but not be advertised.

    Still, given how standalone GPS is such a big deal, you'd think they'd advertise it. Unless, of course, it's not....

    Good catch!

    The numbers for user storage don't make sense either.

    1500mAh battery and impressive talk times! The standby time is going to be great on the Treo Pro. Love it.

    Yeah. Too bad it takes a 30% bigger battery to get a 10% increase in talk time.

    And since the talk time is the same as the GSM Pro, it's likely that the standby time is unchanged.

    How do you figure that? The Pro has a 30% larger battery than the 800w but only nets 11% longer talk time when comparing both published numbers. That points to a less than ideal relationship between maH and talk time, and considering the 800w is using an older MSM I would have expected that relationship to be reversed.

    Hey, I beat you by a full 12 minutes.


    Seriously though, the battery life on the Touch Pro, Treo Pro, or Treo 800w is not outstanding, especially when compared to something like the Moto Q. Now 7.2 hours of talk time is downright impressive.

    Compared to that, 4-5 hours (4 Touch Pro, 4.5 Treo 800w, 5 Treo Pro) is not impressive. Acceptable, but only barely (for any of the three phones).

    I agree that the talk times kinda suck no matter what phone you are dealing with and I haven't figured out why. I know on my old 700p after I turned off the phone because I don't use the battery lasts like a month on standby so it is the radio side that is killing things. I know the newer non-OS CDMA phones do much better in talk and standby time as well, I wonder if there is some weird interaction with the OS and the radio side so that they don't work well together.

    I mean the LG Lotus gets 5.5 hours talk time with a QVGA screen and only a 900 maH battery, is there that much overhead in WinMob during a phone call to explain the nearly doubled level of power needed?
