treo650This just in…. things are getting decidedly bad in the Palm-land. Disgruntled users are suing the handheld/smart phone maker over all the technology related issues. According to the documents filed with the Superior Court of The State of California in the county of Santa Clara, the complaint centers around three basic problems.

In fact, these phones suffered from extremely poor sound quality and buzzing, choppiness, speakerphone problems, poor and broken screens, phone crashes, software crashes and electrical surges. When Palm replaced phones in response to these problems they replicated the problems by providing consumers refurbished phones subject to identical issues.

A lot of bloggers had previously complained about Treo. Mary Hodder’s post on Treo is here. Engadget had reported Treo 650′s memory problems back in November 2004.

  5. [...] Palm, the company that ignited the handheld computer market, capitulated today, and switched away from its own house OS to a Windows Mobile operating system. Proof, that Microsoft eventually wins. Microsoft’s in-house spin-meister won’t even have to spin this one. For this highlights the miscues and missed opportunities for a company that at one point was the market. This is continuation of a ‘confusing’ messages from Palm. Today, given its financials, and shoddy products, it is hard for me to convince myself to take a flier on Palm’s Windows Mobile phone when I have more proven options from UTStarcom, and Hewlett-Packard and HTC? I know those two will be around for a long time, and are unlikely to do a bait-and-switch on the consumer. And they have better solutions anyway? The value of the Palm brand name is no more that the value of Napster as a brand. (Adi, corrected me and said, HTC is making Treo 700w!)
