    Hi all

    As im still waiting for my 650 here in the UK i am really stuck on whether to get a new life drive as the specs are just untrue or stick with the 650.

    What do you think 650 or life drive?

    Apples or oranges.
    They are not the same kind of device, kinda like choosing between a DVD player and Tivo.

    I think you need to take a look at what you want the device to do. They are very different.

    But you'll have to carry a phone again with the Life Drive. If that's what you can live with, then get the Life Drive. But if you're really stuck on all-in-one, wait for the Treo.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    bottom line....Do you need a phone with it or not? The life drive is a multimedia PDA that is obviously more powerful than a treo but you would need a cell phone...so you'd be carying two things around. I am okay with bringing my treo and my ipod with me so it's really up to you.

    But my Treo is my phone, iPod and multimedia PDA. (I want it all !!) (In one.)

    The new standard for non phone hand held devices is here:

    http://www.nokia.com/nokia/0,1522,,00.html?orig=/770

    Add the new Samsung 16GB Flash drive:

    http://www.betanews.com/article/Sams...ive/1116953138

    Add an option for an external monitor with 1024x768 resolution or better.
    Add a phone to it!
    Profit!

    I would stand in line for something like that.

    The Nokia looks great -- but how will it be at being a PDA w/spreadsheets, and a phone carried on my belt?

    I do not think it has a PIM... maybe DOCs to go (or some other company) will make something for it?

    If you want a device that crashes and self resets frequently, get the Treo.

    Otterman, if all you're going to do is troll, then just go home.

    There are many thousands of happy Treo users whose devices DON'T crash and reset frequently. Including me (One reset in the last week, maybe three in the last month, not counting those caused by a piece of software I was testing).

    Maybe the problem is you?

    True, but you are making a substantial compromise on each of those fronts. I think that is why this question is not a no brainer.

    The treo is not a very compelling multimedia pda in comparison to what is out there, and it is not even close to the IPOD in terms of storage and functionality.

    Pretty good phone though...

    I had a Sprint Treo 650 at first. It would reset once every couple days, but the sound (voice calls) quality was superb. I then got an unlocked GSM 650. Honestly, after using it for about four weeks, it never reset itself once - NOT ONE SINGLE TIME. Of course the sound quality was lousy. I'm awaiting my replacement and hoping it treats me as well as the other in terms of resets.

    It could be that the more recent releases have addressed those resets - a problem which I believe is more than likely linked to software incompatibility.

    I agree. Sprint Treo 650 for four months of heavy usage . . . . no resets, great voice quality.

    Hi Robber from post #14.

    Agreed. But it is ONE device and I do not need the BEST on all fronts. If I am not sleeping or in swim trunks, it is on my hip.

    comparing Treo 650 between life drive is very different. LIfe drive is only PDA while Treo 650 is a smartphone... the most convenient is Treo 650, it's a phone at the same time a a PDA. But if you're a movie freak, you must use the LIfe drive which can store and play movies.

    bullS**t. the treo is fine. mine doesnt reset at all. its a superb device. disregard this refuse.

    The Treo can store movies and play them off of the Kinoma player

    for me, the LifeDrive is obviously better for web browsing (bigger screen and Wifi) and taking notes (bigger screen)

    if you need the cellular capability, then go with the Treo ----- its an amazing device, and you won't find a better smartphone

    if you don't need the cellular stuff (or are VERY happy with your current cell) then go with the LifeDrive

    two things to consider

    1. it is really AWESOME to have your Palm Contacts connected directly to your cellular phone

    2. I would wait on the LifeDrive...... the next version (LifeDrive 2) will probably be out in less than a year, with more features, more stability, and at a cheaper price
    BLUETOOTH!!!!
