    Sorry guys... I wanted to upgrade, and the 650 just didn't have everything I wanted in a PDA/Phone. Maybe I'll be able to switch back in a couple of years.

    Chances are you'll be switching back in a few weeks.

    Have fun with your $1000 toy!

    God why'd you pay so much for it? Wait a few weeks and buy it from cingular or something for $600

    I don't particularly like the size or the interface of the PDA2k, but when playing with it at CTIA, Marcus and I noticed one really really cool feature. When talking on the phone, there is one button recording of phone calls (both parties!), and one button shortcut to take notes on the call. Importantly, when you press the note button, date, time, contact are all filled in at the top for you - that to me is some kickass integration (you hearing me p1?) and you can either type or handwrite the notes.

    Here's a detailed review of the phone/pda with lots of screen shots. http://www.mobile-review.com/pda/rev...angel-en.shtml

    It's called "Blue Angel" for the Cingular/ATT market. I only scanned the article but I didn't see a release date for Cingular.

    It's a very cool device, but I can't get over it's size...the Treo size just squeeks in under my personal "Global anti-geek fitness test". I am afraid the BA/PDA2k will, like Bush, fail that test.

    I wish I could hold one to see it / feel it, but I dislike ordering something I don't plan on keeping...seems unfair to the vendor.

    Does the phone inform both parties that recording is taking place? If not I think it would be illegal over here...

    This from a 10 second google.

    I don't represent this as true....it's just the clearest I could find...

    And then back to the PDA2K questions.

    Federal law allows recording of phone calls and other electronic communications with the consent of at least one party to the call. A majority of the states and territories have adopted wiretapping statutes based on the federal law, although most also have extended the law to cover in-person conversations. Thirty-eight states and the District of Columbia permit individuals to record conversations to which they are a party without informing the other parties that they are doing so. These laws are referred to as "one-party consent" statutes, and as long as you are a party to the conversation, it is legal for you to record it. (Nevada also has a one-party consent statute, but the state Supreme Court has interpreted it as an all-party rule.)

    Twelve states require, under most circumstances, the consent of all parties to a conversation. Those jurisdictions are California, Connecticut, Florida, Illinois, Maryland, Massachusetts, Michigan, Montana, Nevada, New Hampshire, Pennsylvania and Washington. Be aware that you will sometimes hear these referred to inaccurately as "two-party consent" laws. If there are more than two people involved in the conversation, all must consent to the taping.

    Don't forget to charge it for the full 6-8 hours. It has dual batteries and you need to make sure the embedded one gets fully charged before 1st use.

    You are going to love this thing.

    So far so good It's not nearly as big as I thought it was going to be. The Treo is a little shorter, but also a little fatter. I love being able to connect it to my 802.11 wifi router... I've also read up on being able to sync via wifi, but no luck as of yet. The phone feels extremely well made. I'm still getting used to this whole pocketpc os... but playing Quake 1 on it sure scored it some points I think I'm gonna install a snes emu next. The thing is, I haven't even put in a sd memory card yet... theres 128mb of ram, which you share between storage/memory (you can partition it on the fly however you want) The phone also detects a "64mb storage card" in which I can install stuff to as well... I'm not sure where it's detecting this card from, or if it's just really the rom. Either way thats a lot of internal storage!

    How do you carry it? My Treo I carry 95% of the time in a Nutshell holster...btw..the best money I ever spent on a holster. The other 5% is in-pocket.

    Does it come with any kind of external carry device and is it useable?

    The picture of the unit in-hand may push me over the edge. Unless the person has the hands of McGilla Gorrilla it's not as big as I thought.

    thats pretty cheap. i really enjoyed the transaction when i purchased it from www.cellularconcepts.com we had some credit card issues at first, but every single time i called them i got a live person right away. they have a 5 day return policy though. if you order before 3:30pm est they will ship it same day.

    The guy in the pic didn't have huge hands or anything... thats really the size of the thing. It came with some cheezy (imo) holster... i don't really care for it that much. i've been shopping cases for the past few hours... nothin yet. I used an alluminum case for my treo 600... loved it.

    Oh, and be careful ordering this thing off ebay etc. Some people are selling a german version thats been flashed with a english rom... but that still doesn't change the fact it has a QWERTZ keyboard instead of a QWERTY. My friend tried to get a good deal off ebay, and ended up getting one of these.
