    The Treo looks VERY cool for a cell phone/e-mail unit. However, be honest - the screen is way too small to be an effective PDA.

    How easy is it going to be to read books on that screen? Write documents with Wordsmith? Plug it into a Stowaway and take notes?

    If you want a great cell phone/wireless web access - it seems perfect. But if you want a PDA, look elsewhere.

    I think the main attraction of the Treo is the excellent integration of PalmOS's PIM features (Calendar, Address book) with the cell phone - easy phone number lookup & dialing, jotting down quick memos while talking on the phone with someone. (I imagine they'll carry these features over from the Visorphone.)

    Lots of people don't use their PalmOS devices for anything more than a scheduler/address book anyway, and this seems like the market Handspring may be going after with the Treo, not so much us hardcore Visor users clamoring for a high-res color screen and tons of RAM.

    As always, it comes down to what everyone expects from their PDA... the Treo may not be ideal for authoring Wordsmith docs or playing Zap2000, but my Prism / cellphone /stowaway combination isn't an ideal wireless solution either.
