    I'm not Tiffany, but I will **** in and say that the Treo650, no matter what "tunes" player you use ain't no iPod. I have had a combination of all of these things, including the Audiovox SMT5600 (my last phone) that has Windows Media Player 10 on it that allows you to Sync with WM10 on the PC including DRM songs. It acts like an iPod in that way, but it still isn't an iPod. You gotta use the 2.5 to 3.5 mm adapter just like the Treo in order to use decent headphones and then you can't actually answer the phone with those headphones/earbuds like you can with the included hybrid earphones.

    Sure, you can make your Treo650 work for you instead of an iPod and it at a basic level it does the same thing - plays music. But the iPod is just so good and easy at playing music it makes you want to listen to more music. I don't see the Treo650 doing that for me.

    But hey, I also got 2 iPods for free. I imagine if I didn't have the free iPods I probably would be using the Treo for my music player at the healthclub...but man that would be awkward on my belt...

    It's about time the cradle comes out. I'll probably drop by the Treo Store or PalmOne Cafe tomorrow and see if they have them in stock.

    Uh, yeah, that's it!

    Every now and then my Treo 650 resets when a call comes in while I'm enjoying my PTunes music. Don't remember this happenning with my iPod.

    I've said this before in another thread, people own iPods and/or Treos for their own personal reasons. Waste of time to try and compare these two beautiful gadgets.

    Not only is the price a rip-off, but so is forcing us to buy the travel charger and adapters to get the cradle. If I'm travelling, the last thing I'm going to haul around with me is a cradle. A nice small charger, or maybe even just a sync'n'charge cable is all the room I want to take up on a trip. The cradle's for stay-at-work (or home).

    P1 just doesn't understand their own market.

    I got a ? for ya,

    I have the sprint case w/flip front protector & swivel clip connector,
    Would I have to take the treo out of the case to use the cradle or can I leave the case on?

    I don't think the Treo 600 would fit in the cradle while inside a case, so I doubt the 650 will. But until a few people actually get the cradles, we won't know for sure.

    Comparing the iPod with the Treo 650 with PTunes (as far as MP3s is concerned) is like comparing a Pinto with a Lamborghini. No contest!!!

    First of all, yes, more than 1 gig is needed if you want to carry your entire MP3 collection with you, which the iPod affords. You dont have to pick and choose - you have it ALL at your fingertips, which completely changes the way you listen to music.

    Second, the iPod interface to access music runs CIRCLES around anything the palmOS can deliver. And of course it should, cause its DESIGNED to be a music player. The iPod can also track contacts and calendar events, but in THAT comparison, the iPod ends up being the Pinto...

    I loaded about 300MB of MP3s on my Treo just because RealPlayer is in ROM, and I might as well, since I have the room. But as I sat picking which songs I wanted from my 9GB collection (and believe me, my collection is TINY compared to many others) I realized carrying around the iPod was much better. So, the Treo will get me out of a jam (or into one ) when my iPod is not handy, but for MP3 management and enjoyment, the iPod has no rival.

    For those in So Cal trying to avoid the shipping charge I was just at the Century City PalmOne store and they didn't have any cradles. The guy said he was told that they are being shipped to them now.

    I ordered and got an email that said shipped. Earlier today the status page said shipped, but the number didn't show up in Fedex. Now the front status page says shipped but the detailed status page says order received? WTF? I hope it really shipped but now I'm not so sure. If I manually type in the Fedex number I saw before it says invalid number.
