While the Treo 755p is slightly smaller than the 700p, it's definitely thicker and bulkier than other full-QWERTY devices, such as the Samsung BlackJack and the RIM BlackBerry Curve.

You can also navigate the smart phone with the controls beneath the display. You get Talk and End keys, a four-way toggle with a central select button and shortcut keys to the phone app, calendar, messages, and home page.

The Treo 755p has about 60MB of user-accessible memory, but for large files like music and videos, use a miniSD card. The device's expansion slot can accept up to 4GB capacity cards.
