    With the arrival of the Centro in GSM format I really need some expert opinions on which of these PALM OS devices to get. From what I understand from the forums these are the Pros and Cons:

    Treo 680:
    Slow Laggy compared to my current 650 (has the new firmware fixed this?)
    Battery drain issue - dead batteries in 1 day
    Can use SDHC up to 8GB


    Centro:
    As fast as the 650
    No battery drain issue
    uses micro SDHC - max 4GB only

    So which should I get.. my 650 is on its last legs and I cannot wait till NOVA...

    Thanks in advance

    Same choice, and I guess it all comes down to price, size & SD card. 680 is going to be cheaper and I am okay with the 680 size. The Centro will require a change to a micro SD card as well. Somebody also mentioned that the Centro was much more stable.

    Having said all that, I am still thinking about getting the Centro (it is the latest model, after all!).

    Any impressions yet on using the Centro, Sergio? I'm curious as well.
