    I remember there being some speculation that Costco would but I stopped paying attn once HS offered the upgrade path. If P1 does not repeat history, I may wait for Costco to carry the 650...

    I've never seen the Treo at the store or on-line.
    "There has always been a tension in conservatism between those who favor more liberty and those who want more morality. But what's indisputable is that Bush's 'compassionate conservatism' is a move toward the latter - the use of the government to impose and subsidize certain morals over others. He is fusing big government liberalism with religious right moralism. It's the nanny-state with more cash." -- www.AndrewSullivan.com

    Costco, with their excellent return policy, steered clear of the Treo and it's 40% failure rate. As was said in Indiana Jones III, "You chose wisely".

    My interest in buying the 650 from Costco would be as a hedge against the quality issues that plagued my 600...

    40%? Where did you get this? Not surprised really, just wondering.

    I was in the Fair Oaks, Virginia Costco last night. They didn't have the TREO line for sale however they DID have a Samsung smartphone in the same price range ($400+).

    As such, Costco carrying a TREO isn't an outrageous idea.

    Sprint only as far as I could see on my brief check.

    Note - they for sure carry HP PDAs (that are wireless or bluetooth enabled?) so aren't afraid of carrying devices with relatively low sales and high prices.
