Aside from the price there are three factors that come into play:
1.) The Treo 700P runs Palm OS while the Motorola Q runs Windows Mobile. (The Treo 700w runs Windows Mobile.)
2.) The Motorola Q has over half and hour more talk time and between two and three times the standby time.
3.) The Motorola Q lacks a touch screen, unlike the Treo.
If you want to take hand-written notes and run programs that require a touch screen then the Treo is your horse. Otherwise I'd go for the Q and save the money.
Hope this helps,
I have read the reviews and narrowed it down to these two phones. Palm treo 700P or the Moto Q. THe 700P costs alot more but has the editors choice and scores very well with the readers. The Moto Q did not score well and not sure if it can do everything I want. I guess what I am asking is, Is the 700P worth the extra money? All I really need is a very good calender, access to the web and good call reception. I do e-mail and text. I'm already with verizon and love the service so I will stay with them.
