Quick overview of Palm Treo 750v

The Windows Mobile from Palm has finally reached the shore of Singapore. It is exclusive to M1 due to its partnership with Vodafone. The v behind the 750 indicates that it is branded and exclusive to Vodafone. It has been a while since my last Palm m500 a few years back.

Palm Treo 750v feels solid and robust, typical of Palm devices. I love the soft feel of the new material used.

This smartphone delivers everything you need without compromise. It runs on Windows Mobile 5.2 and not the traditional Palm OS. Palm has customized the Windows Mobile OS such that everything works right from the TODAY screen. TODAY screen gives you direct access to your contacts, e-mail, calendar events, speed dials, and more. The key to using Palm Treo 750v effectively is to understand the Today screen.

I have had many previous versions of WM devices. Having this type of smartphone without a keypad, be it T9 or QWERTY, is a pain. You are fortunate that the QWERTY keypads come with Treo 750v is very well make. It makes text entries and phone dialling so much easier.

This is a QUAD band device that supports GPRS, EDGE, UTMS (3G) data connectivity. No WiFi but if you are on in countries where data plan is on the cheap, then you wouldn't have any issue.

It's worthwhile to consider this device if you want a solid and robust WM5 device yet does not want those cheap makes from Taiwan. Furthermore, Palm has make the usuability of WM5 devices a level above their competitors. No regret.

It looks like a traditional watch with a glance at it. The cool thing about having an Android Wear is that you have access to tons of cool watch faces. Apple Watch is limited by the fact that it has limited selection build by Apple, no developer has been given access to build any watch face for it.

You must be wondering how do you connect your Android Wear to iPhone and get access to third party watch faces. The Android Wear iOS app provided by Google provides access to some limited selection of watch faces, you can't use any of those that are out there on the internet developed for Watch Maker or Facer.

Thanks to Kevin from XDA Forum, you are in luck now. 

You can now install third party watch faces on your Android Wear and get connected to iPhone for notifications and Google Now. It may …
