    what kind of browsing experience will the t650 have? will the 312mhz processor make a big difference?

    the biggest drag i find on my treo 600 is the LONG delay after clicking the web icon. it appears to take a very long time to launch the browser after switching from the main menu or phone menu.

    the display is important to me, but i am more concerned about the speed.
    will it be much cleaner than the current blazer?

    I found that if you eliminate the pictures in your prefs then the websites load much faster on the 600. I imagine that the 650 will load graphics much faster than the 600.

    Which is really great until the page loads and you find that it has some kind of image map navigation requiring you to reset your preferences and reload it again to use the page.

    I agree. Imageless browsing is extremely difficult nowadays. 6-8 years ago it was a different thing, but most sites use images too extensively to allow for a decent browsing experience without them.

    My $0.02.

    This exact point was made in ZDNet's Anchordesk last week. It's one reason why I really want to have wifi. In a lot places I go, I would able to view the actual web in somewhat decent time instead of just web clipping type sites. I'm very used to broadband and having not used dial-up since 1993 (pre-college), it's not fun on the Treo.

    vw2002 - a long delay in launching Blazer is often attributed to a corrupt cookies file - delete your cookies file with FileZ or something like it (obviously you'll love your cookies) and life should improve.

    i think that blazer 4? is going to be more efficient in the way it loads pages. blazer is horribly inefficient as evident from the speed of the other web browsers. will the new blazer be useable on the 600?????

    i never knew that phones kept cookies...how much memory do cookies take up on a phone. also, do the cookies get deleted everyday, or do you have to manually delete them?

    While in Blazer go into menu-options; tap Advanced & you'll see a checkbox for accepting cookies; tap Memory Management and you'll see your memory storage levels, and you'll be able to clear the caches.

    do you know by chance, do phones automatically clear up their cookies after a certain amount of time or amount of space that has been taken up?

    processor should make it faster. But that is not the only factor. Frequency is a huge factor, i believe. No matter how fast the processor is, the phone is still a CELL phone and your radio can only do so much.
