    Why wouldnt you be able to run 5 miles with a treo, it is not that fragile.. and being solid state, in theory it is better suited for it (no moving parts)..

    There are three reasons for me to have both:
    1) battery life is better having two devices, especially if one is dedicated mp3 player
    2) storage is much bigger with ipod
    3) got my ipod before my treo 600

    Actually I'd prefer the Archos AV420 over the Ipod Photo.

    I agree with jpahl. A treo and an iPod (any iPod) make a great pair. And iPod Photos are cheaper now.

    True . . . ut if that were the case then everyone would still be purchasing the smaller mp3 players.

    Toolkit, have you run five mile with a Treo 650? I haven't with a Treo but I have with an iPod. That 25 min skip protection comes in handy pound the pavement.

    Apple has a market because of the storage space, usability and the ability to carry your whole freaking CD collection of the iPods.

    The Treo can play mp3s but so can my iMac, car stereo and old pocket pc. iPods can't make telephone calls or serf the net . . . . get my point

    If you mainly want one for running, the smaller solid state ones would be better, downside is the limited space, so you keep changing the songs on it, which is a pain (I had one of the first MP3 players, it had 32Mb and a 16Mb expantions card, all uploaded with a serial cable. Thank god technology has advanced..)

    I don't run with my treo (except if I have to catch a bus/train/metro ), I'm not big fan of running. But I do use it on my commute on my bicycle, no problems at all (part from the time I forgot to turn it off and ran the battery flat..)

    I personally own a 60GB (when it was $600... I had to seriously think about it). But with the new price drops, I'd say having a Treo and an iPod is a pretty sweet setup. It's not for everybody, but gadget lovers will most likely find great uses with both devices (I personally NEVER use my iPod for anything other than music playback).

    Interesting comments by all. I guess I am biased because I found the perfect device for me. Since am not an audiophile, I don't need all the great features of the ipod. I also cant stand carrying multiple devices. With sms being so popular, my treo qwerty is just perfect. Being essentially a computer i can carry around, the amount of software/applications I can put is unlimited. So in all, my treo serves as an ipod + sidekick + bluetooth cell phone + camera phone + jot pad + business tool and off course " A COOL GAdget to show off".

    I still believe that the treo marketing team does not do a good enough job of marketing a phone with all these features

    And yes I have run many miles around the gym track with my treo( I put it in my zipper pocket of my track pants)

    You just summed it up nicely. If you arn't "big" into music, then a few CD in your treo is quite fine. But if you are "big" into music (and that doesn't mean audiophile) Then an iPod (or an other DAP) should be with you too. And, of course, this doen't mean an iPod is a replacement for a treo, by any means.

    Which also applies visa versa...............................

    Thats exactly right.

    There are times in which its nice to travel light, in which case the Treo + 1 GByte SD card is fine. However having a iPod as well gives the flexibility to choose to take it if you need it (eg when going on a long journeys)
