The Palm OS is a much better smartphone solution for Mac users because the sync software is freely available from the manufacturer. The Windows Mobile 5-powered Treo 700w, on the other hand, requires third party sync software.
The Treo 700p from palmOne is a CDMA (Code Division Multiple Access) phone that will work on Verizon and Sprint networks. I have been testing the new EV-DO smartphone for a couple of weeks and wanted to share my observations.

  1. C’mon, Jason! You can’t even compare the palm OS to Symbian S60 for mac integration! The e61 is a perfect companion!

  2. I cast my vote for the Nokia E61. The sync support isn’t as mature yet but the device is far better than the Treo. There are plenty of iSync solutions available for the E61.
