    TreoCentral posted a review of the 650 by James Hromadka over 24 hours ago--I'm surprised not to see any discussion of it in this forum. The review starts at http://www.treocentral.com/content/Stories/504-1.htm .

    It seems well-balanced to me, covering both the positive and negative. The NVFS memory issue is perhaps downplayed a bit--the reviewer does not take palmOne to task for failing to include more memory given the 512byte sector size.

    The review is written mostly as a comparison with the 600, which is only partially useful for someone who does not already have a 600 (like me), but it further confirms my desire to get a 650 as soon as Cingular offers it.

    I noticed one small error: in complaining about the 650's lack of a voice recorder, the review claims that the Tungsten T5 has one, whereas it does not (much to the chagrin of T3 users contemplating an upgrade to T5).

    It's only the umpteenth review of the 650 in the past 2 months. Most who've decided to buy the 650 have done so already and have no use for this article.

    So palmOne will sell no more 650's?

    The voice memo is something I wish it had.

    Yep, that was it. Last one left the warehouse yesterday.

    So I guess we should still be seeing new reviews of the Treo 600 too since Palm still wants to continue selling those...

    The bad thing is, it's not him that would encounter it, it's the people that he talks to, and they may not have told him.

    Felipe,
    Good point, however P1 released a ROM update that fixes this known issue. That update wasn't customized for those units that have bad audio. It was an update for all 650's. This makes me think ALL units have an issue since they are the same hardware running the same software.

    For those that do not experience the choppy audio, I have to believe they either aren't sensitive to poor audio or they use their phone in mostly quiet settings. There just isn't an explanation otherwise, IMO.

    i thougth his review was a joke.. He never mentioned the poor microphone.

    I am sure he knows about it. But doesnt have the balls to discuss it in his review..

    He knows about it. especially after the patch was pulled from his website!!

    It's like complaining about the result of a fixed game.

    a fair number of users have reported having zero problems with voice quality on their phones. your comments here seem to disregard this fact. jumping to a conclusion that the guy doesn't have the balls to discuss something seems a little ridiculous to me...
