The included Blazer web browser is pretty good at rendering standard html, but I would still try and find the wireless versions of sites to make life easier on a 160x160 screen. My friend sent me a long list of bookmarks ready for installation on the Treo. You can download here.
Right now there is a huge discount on the Treo 300 for new Sprint customers at Amazon.com
If you are a long time Palm user such as myself then you probably have older applications that will find a new home on your Treo, however as with most operating systems, the good applications are 'sold separately'. Here are some of the applications I have found that make using the Treo a bit more useful:
- Buttons-T - adds extended button-to-app mapping [free]
- HandWrite - keep notes in your own handwriting [free]
- RecoEdit Plus - adds Palm's Graffiti to keyboard-only Treos. [free to registered Treo owners]
- Album to Go - Sync and carry color photos on your Palm/Treo [free / requires registration]
- Adobe Acrobat Reader for Palm - includes a compresion utility to squeeze Acrobat docs onto your device [free]
- 2bAnywhere Mail - Only mail client that I've been able to sync up and send using IMAP [free]
- Treo Tools - adds intelligent sleep function to the phone [free trial / $7.50]
- SnapperMail - a great mail client made with the Treo in mind. Has some features that 2bAnywhere lacks.[$31 - $54]
Here are a few more links I have found helpful in looking for applications and tips to make the most out of the Treo: Improve your Treo from TreoCentral, PDAPhoneHome: Treo FAQ, EverythingTreo and lastly Treo software at Handago. I'll let you know how I like it over the long term.
