Your question depends on your carrier service...
by jgvillan / June 24, 2006 4:38 AM PDT

That depends on what carrier you would like to use. The Treo is available for Cingular, TMobile and Verizon. For the Moto Q: At present, it's only available for Verizon Wireless. Both are Pocket PC ready. Treo's has been out for a while (Pocket PC version very recent), and the Moto Q just came out, so support/software may differ between the two. I have a buddy who has the Treo, and he likes it being a PDA/MP3 player/Cell Phone from Cingular. Battery life is consitant of a regular PDA. Usually 2-3 days life span without a recharge with regular use. keypad is pretty responsive, MS Pocket PC is typical Microsoft, screen is crisp and sharp, and the camera is good for taking pictures when you need too. Except at flash.

I have no clue with the Moto Q, since it just came out about a month ago. Being Moto, should be good. With Pocket PC, should be better.

I hope that this helps alittle, and good luck.

Thanks for your response jgvillan. I like Verizon. I switched to them a couple of years ago and can't complain about their service. I currently have a company Blackberry and it's pretty decent. The new Blackberry, I believe it's the 7130c is very nice as well.

Little vague, are we?

Both those products do and have the same thing?? The q has an expansive keyboard and the treo's is cramped ?? I guess the real question is...what else are you looking for? ELABORATE!!

I thought I was pretty clear on what I was looking for.
