    Here's a thought. The Treo 650 will now use Activesync for syncing on PC's and not the old Hotsync, right?

    If that's the case, what happens to all the apps that use Hotsync conduits like AvantGo for instance? Those Palm Hotsync based apps won't work and any apps compatible with Activesync are Pocket PC based, not Palm. So does that mean all those apps that use Hotsync conduits will need specific versions for the Treo 650? If that's the case, that's a lot of apps that are going to need updating.

    Also, is the Activesync used on Pocket PC's (current version 3.7.1) the same one for the Treo 650 or is it a special modified version of Activesync? And if so, will it co-exist with a Pocket PC install of Activesync? Activesync allows multiple partners on the same machine but a slightly different version installed for the 650 could foul things up.

    Just a few things to ponder...

    I believe you are mistaken. The activesync you are talking about is a part of versamail for syncing with MS exchange servers, not for PC syncronization. The treo 650 will still use hotsync so your conduits should still work.

    Hotsync is still used, but the memory architecture has changed so much that many 3rd party apps will not sync without patches. Datebk 5 looks especially problematic.

    But this is not not due to conduits

    One of the apps I use the most is Bonsai by Natara. Check this thread on their support site. It states "The HotSync Manager version 6 that PalmOne shipped with the T5 has broken our install script.
    We are working to post a new version to fix this. Until then you can download an update from Here to install." The T5 uses the same PalmOS as the Treo650.
