    • Where is USB-C connector?
    • Wireless charging?
    • Heavier than concurrence,  you can find Galaxy S10 for 500$ used...

  • I am also hunting for a smartphone, and I found One of the best review to date on the treo 650 at Spug.net
    Beside,
    UpdateUnlocking code for the GSM Treo 650 is: *#*1234# and then the center D-pad button.

  • apple-ipad-tablet-device-420x0 Just coming back from the Zurich Bahnhofstrasse Apple store where I did play 35 minutes with an IPAD, the shop were not crowed nor full of potential customer as I was also downstair checking accessories.

    I was interested by the 64Gb, Wifi + 3G iPad

    • I don’t like the current operating system: the “desktop” look really empty: it has way too much space between icons,
    • I did not see any special killer application made for the iPad, a lot are currently just scaled up. The gallery, the shop are nothing special at all.
    • The size make it a device I wont have in my pocket, making my iPhone 3GS still relevant in most cases,
    • 700 grams is heavy, try 25 minutes lifting it!
    • I miss a camera (front AND back camera with Flashlight please),
    • The GPS is only available on the 3G version, not on all 3 WIFI models,
    • Ridiculous 3G Data plan at 19CHF for 300MB and 39CHF for 2GB,

     


    To confirm my first impressions, I went through Google to check what others are saying
