    Here is a comparison I just put together. Much of it is based on "weblore", but its probably close enough.

    Edit: added processor info, updated T650 Video Rec, hopefully made it a bit more readable =)

    This is interesting, if somewhat hard to read. However, what carrier(s), if any, will be carrying it in the US? I probably wouldn't move to Taiwan just to use it.

    If you can read Chinese, the reviewer, I felt, was lukewarm to slightly positive about the P50. Below are some comments that I thought were interesting:

    - P50 didn't crash as the reviewer had expected.
    - P50 felt more like a PDA than a phone.
    - P50 had included some of BenQ's own software.
    - The IR couldn't transmit files
    - Multimedia features were good
    - Battery life was terrible, like most PPC phones.
    - The battery gets rather warm when wifi is in use.
    - The keyboard is not ideal for inputing Chinese characters.

    Wrong,
    The P50 runs at 415 and the Treo 650 at just over 300.

    There is a photo of this unit in another thread here. I think the keyboard looks horrid from a usability point of view. very small spave bar, numbers all located at the far right of the keyboard. It just doesn't look fun to use.

    Hmm actually it does. From the palmOne website:

    expansion
    Accepts SD (Secure Digital) and MMC (MultiMediaCard) expansion cards
    SD I/O (Secure Digital Input/Output) ready

    The problem is that it is a non conforming SDIO slot. In other words, they advertise it as such, but do not adhere to any standard that makes 3rd party folks interested in providing devices for it. (Save one exception: there are a select few GPS units that will work).

    See above Anyway, you cant compare these from a pure mHz perspective, just like you cannot compare Intel and Apple processors based on mHz.

    Besides, Palm OS at 100 MHz seems quicker doing most things than a Microsoft OS at 200 MHz.

    You may be right; I may be crazy. But, the Treo may be just the device I've been looking for.
