    Just to start a thread that isn't full of 650 bashing, I'd like to hear how others might have the new side button programmed? I guess I'm thinking I would use it to start pTunes.

    Great question. For me, either voice record, for quick reminders to do things while I'm driving, or voice commands with the new app VoiceLauncher. Here is info about this:

    Cycle through open applications (task switching).

    I will remap it to be an easier to access reset button! ;-)

    Now I hadn't thought about that, but it would be very nice to do this. How would you actually go about doing this I wonder?

    What constitutes an "open" application?

    I don't know how well it would work, but it kinda reminds me of my nextel years ago. push to talk in the future maybe?

    I used to have a Motorola v60 and it had a "smart" button. I used this button to trigger sequences of numbers (e.g. bank account numbers, PINs, credit card numbers, long distance, etc.). I never liked the idea of putting in pauses between sets of numbers. If my phone were stolen or something, then anyone could have immediate access to bank info. with pauses already set in. I'd rather hit the smart button to send those sets of numbers instead.

    Not really a security feature, just more peace of mind.

    I would like it to do something as simple as mute my call. Lots of meetings while at home with a 2 year old or in the car cursing at soccer moms. An easy to hit without looking mute, while is sounds mundane, is one of those things that makes me pick one phone over another.

    I'm going to get a sound bite of Fran Drescher whining about the lack of 1.2mp camera, Rosie Perez asking how stupid P1 must be for not adding more memory and the comic book guy giving his opinion on the lack of wifi...this way I'll always feel at home at the push of a button.

    Hmmm... can't decide. It's between voice recording, video recording, or camera for me.

    I'll simply map it to address book. One thing that Treo 300 had that Treo 600 didn't was type resolve. I.e. if you started typing it would put you to address book, but if the only thing you were typing were digits it'd be smart enough to figure out that you are simply dialing a number, and switch you to dial pad. This basically eliminated the need to press any buttons for address book or for dialpad. I presume Treo 650 is like 600 in that regard, i.e. no smart type-resolving in address book. In which case I'll have default screen be the dial pad.

    TreoButler does this currently using the volume buttons in "switch mode";
    Vol down: previous application
    Vol up: next application

    There are other products out there that allow you to designate a hard button to do this as well. Of course only using one button doesn't allow for "up & down" but I would be OK with suimply cycling through the applications.

    Open may be a little misleading. It's really just cycling through the applications that you have started since the last time you reset.

    Maybe the TreoButler developer can verify and correct me if I'm wrong.
