    I've been waiting for 650 ever since the first rumours surfaced and now it turns out I still can't get my hands on one; given that p1 has announced that the 650 won't be available here in Europe until next year, I'll probably get either the i-mate or the SE910.
    Does anyone here know anything about the "usability" of the i-mate (i.e. one-handed operating)?

    Lately I have the feeling p1 is a sinking ship.....

    The I-Mate is a brick without a nice keyboard.
    The Nokia 9500 is nice, but large.

    I'll probably get a Treo 650. (not happy with it, but I want the Palm OS)

    AfroCreame -- What do you think about the pda2k's size relative to the Treo? I like the features of the 2k and have seen the comparison pics that do not show a huge difference between the two devices in terms of size. Subjectively, though, does it feel a whole lot bigger when carried in your pocket or held to your head?

    I was waiting anxiously to upgrade my 600 (had since November of last year) for the 650, but am very disappointed in the specs.

    There we go again, Sprint cripple-ware. NO WIFI, and I'll bet the bluetooth profiles will be limited to sync and headsets.

    Nice way to kill a great looking device.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    The PDA2k is obviously larger than the Treo's, but I still find it quite pocketable. I guess what makes up for it is lack of a protruding antenna. The Treo is better for a phone with PDA features while the PDA2k is a PDA with phone features. I prefer the keyboard on the Treo though.

    P800->Treo 600->P900->XDA II->P900->MPx->Treo 600->iPaq 6315->MDA III->i-Mate PDA2k->o2 XDA IIs & o2 XDA II Mini
