Whats the obsession with overloading old people with technology? How useful is a PDA/SmartPhone if you cannot read the screen? I'd wager that any 65 year old lady that truly needed a PDA or SmartPhone is probably innovative enough to be able to figure it out, regardless of which model or manufacturer you give her.
True enough. I should've said hand that Treo to any non-computer person and watch them fumble around. Hand them an iPhone and they'll be using 75% of it's functionality in about 10 minutes. And I'm not talking about "advanced functionality the iPhone will never have," I'm talking about basic call management, email, calendar, internet, etc.
The fact that I never have to use a stylus or navigate an extremely poorly thought out menu bar at the top of the screen makes an iPhone so much less aggravating as a portable device.
I've used a Treo, and I'd rather keep my old Motorola V300 than use one of those daily.
