O.T., Palm’s Treo Pro… Gold Medal for Ugliness

Our friends over Engadget (thanks for the pics by the way), released more information on Palm’s new Windows Mobile Treo Pro. (Palm’s Treo Pro gets official. And while I must admit that I use an iPhone daily, I’m still a huge fan of Windows Mobile products. I wish 7 would come soon, but 6.1 is pretty good.

On paper the Treo Pro seems to be decent, HSDPA, GPS, Wifi B/G, 2Mpix camera, 256Mb of ROM, 128 MB or RAM… Pretty OK for such device… One thing I can’t cope with is the thing’s design… LORD the Treo is UGLY… Who on earth would purchase this piece of plastic while many other manufacturers are trying to produce their best designs (HTC, Samsung, Sony…).

It looks like since the Treo 700, Palm is going backwards in terms of design.

    I actually don’t think it is terrible. I’m a big fan of Apple products. Been a user for 10 plus years. I don’t mind Palm design, because they don’t rely to heavily on touch screens. In my day to day work, touch screens do not stand up too well. So although I wouldn’t call it elegant, I certainly would not call it ugly. Especially from a usability standpoint.
