News: Treo 750v Signal Strength Less Than Treo 650

Connect Magazine in Germany has published an article with test results comparing signal strength of the Treo 750v as compared to the Treo 650. Despite Palm saying the 750v has better reception, Connect's test results show that to be false.

msmobiles has posted a rather defamatory article calling Palm, Inc. executives "liars" based on the Connect Magazine article. The original article is in German, so we can't share details from it directly, but here are some exerpts from the msmobiles article:

In numerous interviews Palm, Inc employees were telling many lies... One of major lies of Palm... was a claim that [the] Treo 750v, despite having no protruding antenna, but just antenna integrated into the case, has not worse, but better cellular radio reception than Treo 650 (that has protruding antenna).

German leading magazine about mobile phones "Connect" in a 3 page review of Treo 750v... very solidly has measured (with professional measurement equipment) various features of this phone... and concluded that actually Treo 750v is less sensitive for cellular reception than Treo 650! In other words: claims of Palm employees have been complete lies based on marketing pep-talk and not on real-life measurements.

You can read the full msmobiles article here. There is a chart of the test data there, but the text is in German so its hard to decipher.

Editor Notes

Our intent here is not to bash Palm as Connect Magazine and msmobiles has, but simply to point out that there is now test data that suggests that the antenna-less Treo's do not have as good reception as the ones with antennas. If the performance degradition is minimal, its probably worth it for the improved aesthetics.
