    as far as i could tell, the Hardware B version ( i had both a and b ) has a much firmer keyboard. whereas the a version the keys were loose, the b version seems to be much tighter, like the 600 and blackberrys.

    other than that, i wasn't able to determine any real differences

    I was having issues with my old phone (calls going directly to voicemail when not in home area). The tech said there was an issue with the phone so they had to replace it....I'm still not convinced that this was ever an phone issue. Only time will tell, as I have not been outside of Boston since.

    Anyway, they tried to replace it with a refurb which I refused. Told them there was no way I was going to replace a 3 month old $500 phone with a used one that someone else had problems with. The Sprint rep went in the back and said he would give me a brand new one.

    I noticed that my 650 has a much greater proportion of calls going directly to voicemail when compared to the 600. In home area or travelling. Hard to believe that it could be a phone hardware issue, but something to consider.

    The 600's got up to hardware "C," and then continued to evolve beyond that (even fixing the camera so you can take pictures in places OTHER than outside on a sunny day). It's definitely good news that Palm is finally on to hardware "B" on these buggy 650's.
    Treo 755s in good condition available on ebay for $50-$75. No need to pay for insurance or buy a Pre.

    I just got my 650 replaced with harware b. due to a broken charge port I noticed that. the camera takes better pictures in situations with bright lights. before when I took pictures with version a if the camera was aimed toward light my pics would come out dark now with b version my pics aren't as dark. also the the charger fits in the port more securely and doesn't wiggle from side to side.
