    In the first round within 3 minutes.... I think.

    .......Weve been discovering what its like to fall out of love with BenQs P50 Pocket PC Phone. Weve been eyeing this one since we first spotted it at CeBIT back in March, and its listed specs mini QWERTY keyboard, Bluetooth, WiFi, 1.3 megapixel digital camera (with flash), a 2.8-inch LCD screen got us thinking that maybe wed happened upon a worthy successor for our trusty (and much loved) Treo 600.
