    It takes me forever to do a virus scan. Whenever I do one it makes me wish I had the 1 gb.

    Yeah some of the umpcs look nice, but none of them have the resolution of the UX. Before you consider getting one, I'd suggest bringing your UX to a store and doing a side by side comparison. What you gain in screen size might not be worth the loss of clarity. But hey, if money isn't a critical issue, the umpcs are cheap enough to just add it you toy set. I for one will NOT be doing incremental treo updates anymore. I will keep my 700 P a good long while. If anything, I would upgrade my UX, but I am trying hard not to do that. I'd like to sit out a couple of upgrade cycles if I can resist. However I do keep trying to light a fire under my son'd feet to get interested in my UX so by givinf it to him I could justify getting the 280 P (In weak moments I do think about it).

    Neither of those alternatives you listed have a keyboard do they?
    It is worse with the extended battery. Do you use one? It adds some real heft.

    I have to agree. The only debates in my mind are whether to upgrade my UX now or later. Still got my treo, but no thought of upgrading it for a long time there.

    Honestly ,
    I would wait for upgrading this thing . A 30 gb flash with 1 gb ram would be something more attractive than the current upgrade.

    Yeah it's funny that there has been no talk about un upgrade to the flash model. You think that's coming this year? I am VERY dissappointed with edge service. I am going to upgrade my merlin s620 wireless card to the new u720 (usb Rev A compatible modem card) when it comes out next month and bite the bullet and break my cingualr contract. Edge is so slow that i can't use it. Not needing the sim card makes upgrading to a flash model a lot more attractive. But I have heard no buzz about new flash models....and the flash was never released here in the US anyway. I would really like if the ugraded flash were an official US release.

    Good question.
    Not sure about US release, but the flash drives are getting bigger. There is a samsung Q1 with 30 gb flash .
    Dynamism.com is your best bet , if there is a next upgrade with flash drive.
    Wifi at my work place has not been that impressive . There are signal issues with my UX. Intrestingly my E61 is better in picking up wifi signals.
    And those popups when you turn the machine on are very annoying specially for someone coming from a Mac background.

    I took what you said to heart and pulled back from getting the 280. Then the UX90ss/32gb/1gb ram was announced. This are the same specs we are both talking about here. It is what I wanted and what you suggested as well.

    Of course it is pricey. But I was surprised by youx's reaction over at micropctalk.

    I mean nothing really exciting is happening in the world of treos for me anymore. I will not upgrade my 700p for a long time. In fact, I don't see a reason to. I have a UX and will have a better UX soon. I mostly use my treo now for email, as a phone, and for PIM stuff. The treo specs do that well enough. Any other needs (and future needs) I have/will have can be met by the UX.

    What is really attractive to me now about the treo is the instant on and the great keyboard. The UX has neither of those. So far then, no one device does it all for me. But I am getting pretty damn close.

    I loved my jornada 720. it had Handheld PC 2000 for an OS and was instant on. I wish MS had further developed that OS. I wish the UX had an instant on OS and a better keyboard.

    The convergence isn't quite there yet. But the new UX90/32gb,ss/1gb ram is getting pretty d*mn close.
