    i think the 700w looks like a really ugly machine. the square look makes it seem like a step back not a step forward. Perhaps Palm has done this on purpose so we will all get excited about the thinner sleeker 750G (for GPS) that is slated for next year?

    The keyboard buttons look a lot better.

    I personally think the blue Sprint 650 is uglier than the black Sprint 600, and this is uglier than both.

    I find that if I have a couple of drinks before I use my 650 I think it looks plenty cute.

    I think functionality is more important than beauty with something like this. Besides, it's all subjective anyway. I find the 700w looks different, but not necessarily uglier, then the 650.

    IMHO -- my blue Sprint 650 looks great.

    (Beauty is in the eyes of . . . . . .)

    I don't like the blue sprint as much as the charcoal 600, but i like it better than the 650 gsm phones. I think the 700w is pretty booty. The angles make it look goofy.

    Because it's WM based.

    The Treo 650 is Superman and the Treo 700w is Bizarro Superman.

    Anyways...so I thought the usability wizards at Palm designed the Treo 650's buttons to be shaped that way for optimum usability (which I personally disagreed with, since I think the 600's buttons were probably a bit better, but still awful). With the Treo 700w, it looks like they changed the button shape arbitrarily, just to make it look different.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    But is n't the surface area more on T 700w buttons and will be much easier on fingers ?
    The 700w somehow just by looks has more tough & sturdy appearance. T650 appears more slim .
    May be, that's just my opinion.

    I had my 650 for a while now. It is starting to feel big. I know it is not growing, but it seems to get in the way and feeling sonewhat bric like when I am using the phone. I would like to see a smaller unit with out compromising the screen res.

    Mtreosexual,

    What's up? I was in New York in August. I thought about you while walking through SOHO. I was hanging out on Prince St.

    I am in agreement with you. I like the 700w. It looks rugid. Wow!

    I'm digging the colors and slimmer body.

    Screen blows and the OS is horrable, but it's some good eye candy...
