    I currently have cingular and a motorola v600. My phone is dieing though, rarely works. Good news is, i have the insurance plan so im going to take it up and get a new on. Im thinking of maybe putting it on ebay then buying a different phone.

    Now, I was looking at the treo 600, and then saw they have a treo650, but tis now out for cingular yet. How much better is the 650 over the 600? Which one should I get?

    Thanks

    It's out on Cingular now...at least for business consumers. Just wait a couple weeks more and it will be released for prosumers/comsumers as well...

    If you don't want bluetooth then get the Treo 600.
    If you want bluetooth then get the Treo 650.

    Compare coverage and rateplans in your area before you take biased advise from people on what carrier to choose.

    It's more complex than that though..
    the 650 has a 320x320 screen vs the 160x160 of the 600. Personally I wouldnt go back to 160x160, but if you havent been spoiled by hi-res it might be OK.

    Also there is the memory issue. If you have ALOT of apps the 650 may be problematic..

    Finally the camera, the 650's is heaps better than tehe 600's, though both aren't 'real' digicams..

    And there is off course the matter of budget, the 600 is cheaper than the 650..

    ToolKit, if one were to invest in a high capacity SD card (1 gig), in theory the limited memory of the T650 could be alleviated by using PowerRun or ZLauncher, correct? I know it's not a "true" way of expanding the builtin memory...as it is, I ran out of space on my T600 rather quickly and have since used an SD Card to launch many, many apps.

    Correct, with a few exeptions. some apps. dont like it if their databases run off the SD instead of internal mem.

    But what you discribe i exactly what I am planning on doing..

    Excellent, thanks for the confirmation ToolkiT! Yeah, some programs don't like the SD card, but they're few and far between....now that my service agreement with Verizon will end in March, I'm considering selling my newly fixed T600 and getting a 650...

    Those are all good points but here is my question... I have a Tungsten E and a cell phone, Still waiting for the treo to come my way. I use my palm strictly as an organizer i.e. calender, contacts, keeping the honey please get these things done for me in order and pocket quicken. I have never used blue tooth to link anything and the camera isn't that big a deal. In fact, I have never even had a camera on my phone. I just want to consolidate my palm and my phone but make the right choice when I do.

    I was similar and I never was interested in most of the 650's additional capabilities... until I tried them! One thing I did was I went into a Sprint store back in December and held the two models (600/650) side by side. I saw a big difference in the processor, the screen, and the use of the keyboard. In my circles, there are few 650's and to those who have never used one, the 600 was a big improvement over carrying around separate devices. Then again, every one of my 600 friends who sees my 650 suddenly becomes jealous.
    and it all started with a SHARP Wizard

    Thanks for the imput. I went to the sprint store today myself and did the exact same thing. I'm definately hooked on the 650. The differance in the screens alone was enough to sell me. Not to mention the keyboard and a very familiar home menu.
