    On the T600 the bulge above the screen was supposedly required to accomdate the CDMA radio. So why does the GSM version of the T650 have the same bulge? Is this a cost cutting measure so they don't have to stock two diffferent cases? I think it looks kinda dorky and would prefer that it not be there if it isn't required.

    My guess is that it is just ergonomics. On my CDMA T600, I actually kinda like that little bulge...makes it easier to place the earpiece at your ear "just right", by feel.

    Actually the bulge was not for the radio. It is for a radiation shield.

    I thought it was for acoustics, not to fit the radio. (I might be wrong)


    Anyway... over time, stuff gets smaller. Just look at the new PS2.

    It was radiation shielding for the sprint 600 originally.

    Probably reduces overall costs - all they have to do is change the paint in the sprayer rather than worrying about two different injection molds!
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    It was feeling inadequate with no buldge.

    I liked the bulge on the Sprint T600 too. Like the other guy said, it helped when trying to get the speaker over your ear in the right place.

    Thanks. It was 5:00 AM and for some reason I was just inspired (put off my homework to do it).

    I had a couple other lines written but didn't want to overdo it. ;-)
