    - anything else you feel moved to tell me?
    The new version of Spb Wireless Monitor tells you exactly what program is access data and how much it has used. Its awesome, I've been using version 3 since it was released. I love it!

    Since plenty of users prefer the Palm OS interface to Windows Mobile (me included), a best of both worlds solution makes sense--especially if you want the more-powerful hardware of the Pro rather than just settling for the hardware limitations (no 3G, no WiFi, no onboard GPS...) of the Centro. If it doesn't have to be either-or, why limit yourself to those choices?

    One of the first things I would do is load StyleTap so I could run Palm apps.

    I may go back to the treo style. I had a 600 and then a 650, obviously they were both PALM OS. I now have a Touch and Im looking to upgrade soon. I really loved the treo full keyboard, and I can't wait to try out the Treo Pro on sprint.

    As a looonnnggg time Palm user I'll give my perspective. The original Palm PDAs were marvelous devices built around ease of use for daily tasks: appointments, contacts, to-do lists, notes, etc. They still work for that if your needs are basic.

    The Treo line extended this approach into a communications device about the time that phones were taking over our daily lives. There were other smartphones in 2003 including those running Windows Mobile but nothing as well integrated and easy to use as the Treo. I loved my 600.

    For a few years the Treo was the best at what it did. But as communications technology, computers and the internet became intertwined, the ancient Palm OS couldn't keep up. Later Treos suffered from complexity, instability, a poor internet experience, and inherent design limitations. By 2007 the writing was on the wall and Palm, unfortunately, had nothing up its sleeve.

    With limited resources there was nothing much Palm could do but repackage the Palm OS into an end-of-line Centro and morph the Treo into a Windows Mobile platform--ironic seeing that the original Palm was years ahead of its Windows counterparts. Well, those years had passed while Palm stood still. Sad but progress does not wait for a company as poorly run as Palm.

    So, how well does the Windows Treo work? Certainly it is powerful and can do things the old Palm OS cannot. Windows has a large development and user community, too. But Windows is not a mobile platform at heart and suffers from complexity and bloat. It only partially works within the traditional Treo framework of doing daily tasks easily and efficiently. Lurking beneath any friendly skin is the Windows beast. Half a Treo at best.

    I'd like to try the Treo Pro while we see if Palm survives. I'm not holding my breath, though.

    That begs the question what is the other "half a treo" that Treo Pro is missing.

    I was a Treo 600 user, who have migrated through 3 generations of Windows Mobile; WM2003SE (XdaIIs), WM5 (838pro), WM6 (TyTNII); to current WM6.1 (TreoPro). Mmm ... all four were HTC manufactured devices.

    Perhaps it has been too long ago, but I find it hard to put down what's missing in TreoPro, that was available on Treo 600. And I don't remember reading of any big improvement on PalmOS from Treo 600 to 755p.
