    What is anticipated to be the next AT&T palm phone?

    My Treo 650 is on its last legs and I'm looking toward a replacement option. Right now, the 680 is the only one available from AT&T with the Palm OS. While it would certainly be an upgrade over my 650, the 680 does not excite me much. The memory is lacking compared to other devices and it still only supports a 2GB expansion card, while 8 GB cards are available.

    Am I to be relegated to the 680 or is there anything more exciting on the horizon. Or, perhaps you can get me excited about a 680.

    Or, heaven forbid, should I switch to the I-phone with 8GB of internal memory and built-in multimedia capability? What is an AT&T customer to do?

    p.s. Switching to another carrier is not a good option; AT&T has the best coverage in my area.

    That is completely wrong. Thte 680 supports 8GB cards (and probably bigger).

    I'm pleased to get clarification on that point. AT&T's website says that it is up to 2GB. If the 680 truly supports 8GB SD cards, then that is one thing in its favor.

    Your only choice is the 680, with the iphone you have to be on a whole new plan My 680 has been good, I have had more problems with it since I did the upgrade but that could just be coincidence.

    It looks like the Centro may be coming to AT&T. The news section of the site had this article showing a pre-release pic of a Centro with AT&T apps on it: http://www.treocentral.com/content/Stories/1369-1.htm.

    Hardcase,

    Not all 4gb and 8gb cards will work, you'll want to look specifically for (if memory serves, search the forums) SDHC cards.

    I am trying out the HTC 'Tilt' on AT&T. It has 3G, Wi-Fi, and GPRS. It's like having a mini-PC with you. It has Windows Mobile 6, slide out QWERTY keyboard. It's very different from my Treo 755p. It requires a lot more dexterity than the Treo, but I think it's a cool phone. I don't know if it's going to make me go back to AT&T.
