    Mgauss,

    So what are you waiting for? Nobody is stopping you here. You were never happy with your Treo 600 from Day1

    By the way, where the cr@p is the thumboard on that P900? Or is that what's holding you up.

    I'd buy that thing in a heartbeat if it has one

    Its a simple concept I don't know why all the "Treo Killer" posters cannot grasp it: No Keyboard, No Comparison!

    I happen to agree with you and I bought a Treo 600 while in the shop to upgrade my P800 to a P900 -- for me there was no competition: Now I have my Treo, I do 90% of my work on my Treo when travelling, leaving my notebook feeling rather left out!

    However, quite a lot of people feel differently. For them, the P900 is a valid competitor to the Treo 600, keyboard or not. That's the nature of the SmartPhone industry right now -- we have enough differences in technology to allow us all to find the right device for our needs.

    The P900 is a nice phone and does have some advantages over the Treo 600. One I do miss is the Bluetooth... Syncing and acting as a modem over Bluetooth makes your life a lot easier, not to mention the use of a BT headset.

    Still, would I consider a P900 and upgrade? No.
    Can I understand that for MGauss it is? Yes.

    What companies are carrying the P900 in stock?

    Probably the same ones that are carrying the T-Mobile TREO 600.

    With all due respect, really I am serious, with iR keyboards avail for the various phones (palm os based) the thumbboard is not a crucial as it once was. In this case however since there is not an external keyboard that I know of...I cant see spending the money for a T900

    True, but I still don't see myself whipping out an IR keyboard while waiting in line to get into a movie, sporting event, etc. Nor would I want to have to carry an IR keyboard with me - I use the thumbboard all day long, which means I'd have to have the IR keyboard with me all the time to achieve the same functionality. You start whipping keyboards out and they're going to cast you in the next Revenge of the Nerds movie installment.

    BTW, just how many Symbian OS apps are available, compared to Palm OS?

    And the tech specs say web access at 28.8. I think my (CDMA) Treo is a heck of a lot faster than that.

    16MB ram vs. 32 forthe Treo

    Crummy, espensive Memory Stick technology, and the specs say "32MB memory stick." I hope it's not limited to that.

    It appears to me that the Sony is perhaps a better phone, for people who primarily want a phone with a bit of PDA functionality thrown in. But I think the Treo appears to be a heck of lot more powerful PDA/web/email tool.

    You pays yer money and makes yer choices. I've yet to see a product, in ANY category, that is perfect, and meets everyone's needs. That's why we have choices, and that's one thing that makes the free world great.

    I love the Treo built-in keyboard. It's great for SMSing around. I send these full-sentence, punctuated messages to my non-Treo using wife. She sends back things like "ok", "gr8", "l8er", etc.

    Also, her Nokia smartphone is a Symbian OS model and the available app choices are pretty slim-pickin's fer now.

    We don't need no stinkin' IR keyboards

    A statement such as this, of course, begs the question(s):

    == What apps does this person believe are missing?

    or perhaps more to the point:

    == How does this person use her phone such that more apps
    == are necessary?

    or:

    == Does this person need any more apps than this person
    == already has?

    (studies show that people use text messaging, calendar, calculator, organizer, email (a little), and web browsing (a little), and pretty much nothing else, in general.

    I think Symbian can handle those.)

    Convenient of the studies to show people only use the apps that are currently available . . .

    Kind of like when the Ford Model T came out. "You can get any color you want as long as it's black."

    I got that email too. I'll wait for EDGE, GSM 850, improved PIM sync conduits, and a more mature selection of apps

    Those of us that use the Treo as a business class device with full MS Exchange support know that sending 3 letter responses to clients wont cut it.


    IR keyboard.....get real....I need to respond to clients needs no matter where I am....the thumb board is where its at......thats the freaking reason that the blackberry is such a success.


    I can see me responding to a client on that Sony Phone.

    I feel compelled to comment. I've had a Treo 600 for the past 3 months. It's great and I don't plan on getting rid of it. However, I just got a P900. I don't know if I'll move to it most of the time or not yet, but it really depends on what you use the device primarily for.

    If you use the keyboard all day long, great the Treo it is. No other device on the market has entry as far as I'm concerned. However, I use it primarily for phone, web, and data lookup. I retrieve email and messages, but don't spend a lot of time time sending them.

    I do however use a laptop (PowerBook G4 15" AL) alot. Having Bluetooth for synch, data transer, and wireles modem is a huge advantage. Yes I can do those with a cable on the Treo (although any data modem usage requires me to buy software and I don't really know how well it works yet). When you're waiting 10 minutes before boarding a flight after already going through the security process, a bluetooth equipped phone blows the Treo away.

    For phone functions also, you get cool MP3 ringtones (yes, I have Lightwav for the Treo but with it built-in the implementation is much better), increasing ring option, automatic photo id if the contact as a photo attached (you can only do this with favorites in the Treo), and of course the cool bluetooth headset option.

    The Treo of course has the best lookup with the fast keyboard search, but the P900 has voice tags also.

    I love my Treo, but don't sell the P900 short it is pretty attractive for many people. Think about this, SE sold about 1 million P800s (the previous version) in about a year by most accounts. At Handspring's current rate how long do you think it will take to sell 1 million Treos? A very long, long time uless they get their act together. Outside of the U.S. they are somewhat of a non-player. The P800 sold very well world-wide. The P900 might do better. Lack of bluetooth in a high-end device (my biggest problem with the Treo) is a factor outside of the U.S.
    Main Phone: Treo 270/600/650/700w/700p/750v/Motorola Q/iPhone
    Tried but sold: Motorola Q/Nokia E61/700wx/HTC TyTN/Treo 680

    Of course Symbian can handle those. I would hope so. For all I know, Symbian is the greatest OS ever. I said "...slim-pickin's fer now". I'm sorry if you missed my qualifier. "This person" wants more apps than are currently available.

    Here's an example from one of our family's hobbies: astronomy star-charting programs. The Palm OS world has plenty of astronomers writing apps for this. I found one Symbian app. How about music composition and theory? How about...? You get the point. As more Symbian devices are sold, more app development should follow.
