    You know what gets me is the secrecy surrounding the T650. Here we are, perhaps just days until the release (even that is unknown really) and we still don't really know the specs. Then I look at Ben Q or the Nokia Communicator, and the BOTH boast what's coming with a spec sheet! These look very interesting and the Nokia blows the 650 out of the water IMO, which is why I'm thinking of holding out for it. I got my Treo 600 days after it's initial release (waited for it for a couple months) and like everyone else I survived the Treo 610 rumors and was all giddy about seeing pics for the first time, couldn't wait for it to be released, etc! Damn this has been an exciting time, and yes, I love my T600s (have had a couple replacements because of the Network Search bug).

    But DAMN that Nokia communicator looks very cool, especially with the larger wide format screen for browsing the net & watching movies. It may be a brick, but with Wi-fi, more memory, and all the goodies we've speculated about on the Treo (as well as some we haven't), I think Nokia has been reading our forum! While it may be a painful wait, I think it's the next true geek must-have device. I still haven't totally made the decision to switch, but unless P1 comes out with a better Treo than the 650, or unless the T650 is more than it seems at the moment (Wi-fi at LEAST), I'm probably going to (reluctantly) make the switch.

    And before you tell me not to let the door hit me on the way out, please know that I'm as 'Palm loyal' as the next guy, having had many Palm devices before I had the Treo, starting with the Palm III and working up. I've been excited about each upgrade, but more frequently than not felt like they could have done better.

    I love the Palm O/S, the community and all the people I've met here at TC. Like many of you, I have supported many developers of Palm software by both purchasing their products and sending in donations for development. It's not ME turning my back on P1, it feels like it's the other way around.

    P1: PLEASE bring us what we're asking for!! If other companies are doing it, why are you holding out on us?? I'm probably going to have to get a Tungsten to carry around with my Nokia Communicator just so I can continue to use some of my favorite Palm Apps, and still be part of the Palm community. Yeah, I like it THAT much!

    Why is PalmOne holding out on you? Because Nokia and BenQ are not subject to the same securities law restrictions on forward looking information (PLUS - PalmOne has been burned very badly in the past by announcements killing slaes of current devices - think about all those poor slobs buying Treo 600's from Best Buy for $599 who don't know any better).
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    And as for everyone else who don't know crap about the 650, and they "heard" from another forum, that someone else said from another post, found a rumor that the 650 has XYZ, and insist in regurgitating the truth by typing it here...SHUT THE **** UP!!!

    Pretty lame, dstrauss.

    BTW - NOK is responsible for the same securities laws.

    PLMO is just stupid, that's all, since they're STILL trying to attract geeks rather than rank-n-file customers.

    Fits well with Silicon Valley, I guess.

    THen again, PLMO doesn't have to sell at all to end customers, they have to sell to those who sell to end customers.

    Yeah - that's why all the secrecy! They don't want those sellers to know anything in advance!

    You shouldn't take it so personally, let the man express himself!

    I don't take it personally, I just find it distasteful in our otherwise civil little community.

    I would have to go with dstrauss on this one. Nokia and BenQ are releasing an answer to the Treo, not just a slightly better version of what they already have on the market. Had I not found this very informative site, I would have purchased the 600 and been pissed a couple months later when the 650 came out.

    Wow...Tattletelling!!! You big clever witty man!!! How old did we turn today? This community is just bursting through the seams of bottled up hatred towards PalmOne/Handango and the dang (is that better?) release date. It's surprising that we don't have a bunch of schizophrenic mass murders on our hands, because I know, even you are going nuts, Mr. dutchtrumpet, Mr. I watch this forum every minute of my life, Mr. 873 posts.!!!

    And so who are you to stop my devilish acts of reverse swear words? When you know that is what's going through your head. I'm tired of everyone holding me down. It's time to mean what I say and say what I MEAN!!!

    In conclusion, do your best to get me banned, kicked out, or shunned from this board. Maybe then someone will listen and get my point. BUT, is that REALLY going to stop me? For the weak minded Mr. theFourth, I will never go away!!! I will come back as J0VE (that's spelled with the # zero) or JO\/E, J()VE, J()\/E, _|()\/E, or even better EVOJ. Any way, you are gonna kcufing know who I am, what my ssa is about and, and my tish will always be heard!!!!
