    So Walt Mossberg continues to support the 600. He even lashes out at some people who don't. When someone asked if the story they were hearing from their IT department about the Treo's poor battery life, his response included (emphasis added):

    Your IT folks may be ignorant about the Treo 600. Another possibility is that they are confusing the current 600 model with the earlier 300 model, which had a weaker battery life that caused problems for some heavy users. Or, they may have an agenda. The BlackBerry's maker focuses heavily on wooing IT departments and supplying server software, so it is more popular with corporate IT folks than is the Treo.

    Below is the full Q&A. Mossberg uses the Treo 600 as his everyday phone!!!!

    Q. I am a longtime Palm user, but my company is going with the BlackBerry system, which I don't feel is as good as an organizer. I am inclined to stick with the Palm OS, but our IT department is telling me that the Treo 600 has very poor battery life. Do you agree?

    A. No. I carry a Treo 600 every day, and download hundreds of e-mails to it all day, at 15-minute intervals. I compose and send at least a dozen e-mails a day on it as well. I also use the Treo as my everyday cellphone, and do occasional Web browsing on it. I have never once run out of battery power before getting home to recharge it. Not even close.

    That doesn't mean the BlackBerry is a bad product. It's a fine e-mail device, and has strong fans across corporate America. But it's a worse overall device than the Treo, which is also a good e-mail device, as well as a very good phone and an excellent organizer.
