    Had treo 650 for 3 weeks but ran into instability issues (resets, freezes, etc) and finally returned it within 30 days. Got Blackberry 8700C with zero issues. To my surprise, email and internet browser on Blackberry 8700C is a lot faster than treo 650, but I only like treo 650 for camera and multimedia stuff. Does anyone know if Treo 700 will fix all the instability issues found in 650?

    Of course the Treo 700w will be disappointing. Nothing ever lives up to the hype. Remember Ginger? So amazing and so disappointing at the same time.

    Eventually in 3-6 months however it will have matured enough to be seen as a device in its own right, and be quite useful. Such is the Hype Cycle.

    What are the 5 phases of a Hype Cycle?

    1. "Technology Trigger"
    The first phase of a Hype Cycle is the "technology trigger" or breakthrough, product launch or other event that generates significant press and interest.

    2. "Peak of Inflated Expectations" <----- We are here
    In the next phase, a frenzy of publicity typically generates over-enthusiasm and unrealistic expectations. There may be some successful applications of a technology, but there are typically more failures.

    3. "Trough of Disillusionment"
    Technologies enter the "trough of disillusionment" because they fail to meet expectations and quickly become unfashionable. Consequently, the press usually abandons the topic and the technology.

    4. "Slope of Enlightenment"
    Although the press may have stopped covering the technology, some businesses continue through the "slope of enlightenment" and experiment to understand the benefits and practical application of the technology.

    5. "Plateau of Productivity"
    A technology reaches the "plateau of productivity" as the benefits of it become widely demonstrated and accepted. The technology becomes increasingly stable and evolves in second and third generations. The final height of the plateau varies according to whether the technology is broadly applicable or benefits only a niche market.

    Considering your post there Surur, the 650 might be in that 4-5 area. People in general liking it, and basically using if for what it was made for an enjoying it.

    I don't think the 700 will be problem free when it comes out. Give it a 'burn in' period and it should be as stable as the 650 is now.
