    Went to CompUSA yesterday to see what they had on sale.

    Their ad listed all PDAs on sale... and saw a 615. It was silver. Very nice unit.

    Now to figure out where to come up with the cash.

    Whoops.... forgot to mention that it wasn't on sale. $399. I asked the gal behind the desk - she said it wasn't on sale, and that they didn't even have it listed in their inventory.

    Got the Clie T-615 for 379.99 at CompUSA here in NYC. Its here charging up at my desk.

    I got a wedding to pay for!! My fiancee is gonna kill me

    Hmmm maybe she won't kill me if I offer her my 710c+ as a peace offering. Plus I could sell the Prism I gave here to recover some cash.

    Guys . . . say a prayer.

    As a woman and a PDA nut, I would be terribly upset that you kept the newer T615 and gave me the "hand-me-down". If I were you, I would add flowers to the peace offering. Chocolate is good too...

    Good point.

    But shes not a PDA freak like ourselves. She just loves to play bejeweled. So as long as the 710 can play it she'll be happy.

    Trust me everything else is first rate

    Once you get it charged and work with it a little I'd like to know your opinion of the buttons and up/down switch.

    I had a chance to play with it at C-USA. As sweet as it was I was really disappointed in the buttons - especially the new rocker type switch. I have all of my buttons remapped and use them quite a bit for access. Wondering how I'd like these for the long term. Thanks

    I have an interesting Question - Anybody Seen a BLUE T615C in their travels?
  10. #10  
    Thought I'd throw in my 2 cents on the Clie buttons.

    The rocker button is hard to push up or down....everytime I try to push it I have to 'think' about it.....I'm sure this will go away after time. But I really don't see the need for it anyway.....I'm training myself to use the jogdial....it's so much easier.....I don't understand how I lived without it.

    As for the other buttons.....I don't have a problem with them...they are easy to press and the lower half has a small concaved area so I can press them with my stylus very easy.

    Now for games......they suck....they are all to close together...but I really don't play games except for puzzle and logic games. If I wanted game play I'll buy a Playstation2. (which I won't as I'd never get anything done)

    Ok, so I read that the blue models won't be out until the end of Feb. Sony site says they will ship on or before 2/28. I decided not to wait as there is a CompUSA just down the street that has the silver ones. They did not have a display model so I asked them about it. The associate opened a box and said it would need to charge first. No problem, I'll walk around and spend some more money while I wait for it to charge a few minutes. (I just want to make sure the screen shot is accurate, I already know I want it if it is as advertised.) The associate tracks me down in the store minutes later and tells me that her manager told her that ALL their T615s were missing "a piece of the OS software" and were going to have to be returned because they froze up on the power up screen. She also told me that it was a dark screen, nothing like the box.... I then realize she does not have the backlight on.... I quickly walk out of the store....

    ....and go straight to Best Buy 1/2 block away. I find the T615 on display, play with it, take one home.

    The screen is b-e-a-u-t-i-f-u-l! Of course, I may not be the best judge because I have always had a grayscale PDA so I am sure ANY color would be pleasing to me. I noticed on my unit that the rocker button is stiffer than the one on my T415 (which will be history soon). I don't use it anyway, I like the jog dial and have become quite attached to it.

    CompUSA did have the travel charger which I did pick up while I was there. ($30)

    I think I'm going to like this PDA. Already I know what you guys/gals mean when you say "Once you had color, you'll never go back."

    P.S. What happened to the spell checker here on visorcentral?

    I am trying to figure out how to talk my wife into letting me get one of these new Sonys. I had a question about Best Buys extended warranties they sell. I purchased one for my Visor Deluxe when I bought it. I was told the policy covers the unit if I were to drop and break it or something. If I were to have an accident with my Deluxe would they give me a new Deluxe if there was one available or would they give me money towards another PDA such as a new shiny Clie T615? Also, would they give me the cost for a new Deluxe (at todays current market value) or would they give me $250 (the price I paid for it when I originally purchased it)?

    You never know when an "accident" may happen, especially with a 16 month son around

    So you are asking us to help you figure out if you should have an 'accident' with your Visor?

    I think if less people tried to cheat the system.....the cost for all of us would drop. Why don't you go break your Visor and then find out what they will give you for it. Better yet, drop it in the toilet....and I bet you they give you what it's worth then....sh*t.

    I prefer PDA challenged...

    Read your policy CAREFULLY! I have the same thing but I did not use it because I do not have a valid complaint about my T415 (other than it just being grayscale). However, if your Handspring has a valid problem, like constant fatal exceptions, backlight quit working etc., you could use it to exchange for either another visor or they will give you your PURCHASE price toward another model/brand.

    P.S. Don't let the kid take the fall, make sure it is a valid reason for return. There are lots of them. Be honest, they like you to keep coming back!

    Well, I'd be the first to say that I think the Clie buttons come in last in the Palm PDA Button Marathon, panting and puking as they cross the finish line.

    That said, with the exception of the rocker, the buttons are adequate. The N710C (and the other N series Clies) have a bouncy button that gave me no tactile response that I'd sucessfully pushed it in. The T615C does have that "click" feel that Visor users have come to love.

    The rocker is the one exception -- I feel like I'm about to stub my thumb. But as others have stated, I am quickly getting to the point of not using it any longer.

    The Jog Dial is King! All Hail the Jog Dial! We are not worthy!

    I actually bought the extended warranty FOR that reason. I figured over the next 12-24 months, the screen or graffiti area will be scratched or something won't work and I'll be able to get a new one...nothing unethical or immoral about that.

    Isn't that why they sell the warranty? I know MOST people never use them so they make a bunch of money, but for those of us who are particular about our PDAs, we may not want to have scratches, dead pixels or the other minute damages that can occur.

    and...if your kid drops the PDA in the toilet...it's a hazard of having children. Just another reason to invest in extended warranties until they're older. I won't be sitting on mine on purpose, but my friend's five year old LOVES to play the games and has dropped my Prism before. No reason he wouldn't be as uncoordinated with my Clie! ;-)

    I'm confused as to why you would get the 615 C if you already have a 710c or 760c. Just the form factor? I don't think the 760C is all that big anyway. This makes the perfect Father's Day gift later this year!

    Well here's the skinny on the T-615. Its another device following the recent great tradition of the Sony Clie family.

    The Good stuff

    The T-615 has in my oppinion has the best contrast of all the clies to date. Hi-res display doesn't hurt either.

    The T-615 form factor is awesome and rivals the Visor Edge (which is still a viable option for a pda). It has a very solid feel but is still lighter than the Clie 710/760. I can fit this baby just about anywhere a M505 can go.

    The built in audio capabilities is great and is beggin' TealPoint to take advantage of it in TealMovie, seeing how GMovie doesn't support the built in speaker. And you have got to hear Zap!2016 on this clie, you'd swear the clie had a classic sound blaster card in it. Becarful though, the speaker can get 10 times louder than the standard palm speaker.

    The apps that came with the T-615 are great too. Clie Remote control comes on the installation disk among other neat apps like World Alarm Clock and StreetFinder.

    Vibrating alarm is well . . . a vibrating alarm.

    Improved beaming is great. I can control my Toshiba TV with my T-615 from across my living room.

    Oh and you gotta love the higher quality Jog wheel on this baby. Its much more sturdy with a solid feel.

    Last but not least, did I say it has 16megs internal!!!


    Short comings

    Some shades of red are not as vivid as they should be. They have more a dull shade and thus sometimes look more brown than red. I found this out by running a copy of McColors on both my 710c and the T-615. Though the images still look great. I guess the Visor Prism still has the best color fidelity in the Palm world.

    The Alarm LED (silent alarm) is not that noticable. Just like the M505, there is a light on the device that flashes but I think the screen flashing would have worked better.

    The buttons are fine except for the scroll button. This tiny toggle-like switch is not gonna win any fans. But I use the Jog wheel all the time so its a minor annoyance.

    The stylus glides on the screen which is great, but this stylus is thinner and shorter. I wish it was the same size as the previous clie stylus.


    Verdict

    Its another dam good PDA. I got my T-615 for a retail price of $379.99 , which I feel the M505 should have been when it was first released. The T-615 isn't perfect, but the great price and solid build makes it a winner in my humble oppinion.

    I personally have been getting back to basics on my pda and have been using the mp3 player less and less, especially since napsters demise. I find I need the power of a clie in a smaller package and this gem fits it.

    I can say this much . . . I will never go as far back to a 160x160 display. Never!!!!
