Palm Treo 700w Software Compatibility List Sat Jan 07, 2006 2:02 am
Are you surprised that we would have to have a software compatibility list for the Treo 700w? Well, there are basically two reasons for this. One, the operating system used by the 700w is first release of Windows Mobile 5. Secondly, the 700w has a 240x240 display. Most software is written with a 240x320 device in mind. While I am not certain about incompatibilities of the 240x240 display, I am certain of incompatibilities with Windows Mobile 5 devices.

With that said, if you have a Palm Treo 700w and would like to share your experiences with well-behaved or ill-behaved applications for the device, please let us know. Links to all the PalmFocus Software Compatibility Lists can be found on the left side of the page. Thank you!

PalmFocus - New Discussion Areas Wed Nov 23, 2005 1:05 pm
Typical forums cover the different hardware and software platforms. I wanted to take a different approach. Thus, I have created several discussions in the PalmFocus Forum that cover things from business to education to real estate.

I encourage everyone to provide ways they use their device in these different areas. You might mention the software you use, or you might mention a feature you found that really helps in some way. If you have something that does not fit in any of the areas, feel free to suggest a new area or put your item in the "other" area. As always, thank you for visiting.

Palm Treo 650 Update 1.17 for Cingular Customers Tue Nov 22, 2005 6:27 am
Cingular customers have another update available for their Treo 650. If you missed the previous update, do not worry. This update includes all the previous enhancements along with some new ones.
  • Includes VersaMail 3.1c, the latest version for Cingular Wireless Treo 650, which includes an updated Mail Service (ISP) list.
  • Adds support for Gmail attachment downloads via web browser
  • Optimizes Bluetooth performance for some Motorola headsets and other car kits
  • Adds voice quality enhancements.
  • Optimizes memory handling
  • Correctly saves Auto-off power setting. This addresses an issue experienced by some users after installing updater version 1.15
  • Adds an audible beep to indicate call initiation failures
  • Improves battery life by automatically turning off screen after 30 seconds of a call (originally included in Treo 650 Update 1.15). The power savings will vary depending on usage patterns. To turn the display back on at any time, tap the screen. Do not press the red Power/End button, unless you want to end the call. The screen-off feature applies to handset mode only, not speakerphone or headset modes.
Be sure you download the correct update. Apparently, there are three separate downloads depending on what version of the software you have (CNG, CNB, or CNA).
