    The keyboard on the PDA2k is actually one of the best parts about it. I thougt it would feel awful, but I was pleasantly suprised. Took me about a day to get used to it (mainly trying to learn key locations which are different), but now I find it is just as fast as the Treo (and a bit more comfortable to use as well).

    This is, of course, ultimately a matter of personal preference. But for what its worth, I haven't read any complaints about the keyboard from other PDA2k users.

    Now if I only had a PPC version of TreoKeys or KeyCapsHack or whatever it is called now. The lack of that hack is the only aspect of the PDA2k keyboard which I am missing.

    I dunno. Based on that picture comparing it to the Treo I'd disagree with the assertion that "There is not a huge difference between them." He's artfully arranged the two so that their center lines are evenly positioned, so if you look at the top, there's only a little difference, and if you look at the bottom there's only a little difference.

    A more meaningful comparison would have lined up the bottom of the two devices. The 6601 would look a LOT taller than the Treo in that comparison, I believe. And while the Treo does have the antenna sticking up, that's still not as bulky as having the entire device that tall.

    But to me, all this is a bit silly. If you want all the latest gadgets, bells and whistles, buy the PPC. If you want a sleek, functional device which fits easily in your pocket, and works simply and easily as both a phone and pda, the Treo is simply the best choice. I don't think they really compete except at the most basic level. Yes, they are both "smartphones." but...

    One is like a Corbit or Klotzi pocket knife: clean, elegant, small and light:

    The other's a swiss army knife. Yeah, you can open a bottle of wine, cut out paper dolls, or cut off your own arm with it, but it's definitely compromised by it's design:

    I have no doubt which knife I'd rather carry in my pocket, nor which phone.
