    Before you dump your Treo, go to a local CompUsa and check out the demo 9290 phone and hold it in your hands. That sucker is HUGE!!!

    It's a brick. And you talk into it backwards ie: The display/keypad is facing out.

    You would have to be crazy to dump a Treo for the Nokia Brick.

    I donlt much care for the Symbian OS. Some folks love it but I don't know why. With all of the third party software options for the Palm and hardly any for Symbian' why would you want to switch?

    I'd rather have the treo as well (even though there is still no way to backup that thing...ugh.)

    The Nokia 9290 is 1) NOT a tri-band or dual-band so you can only use it in North america, and worst of all 2) NO GPRS!!! You must ONLY connect via CSD at 9.6kb. If you're in canada, you're sol since all canadian carriers got rid of CSD and only provide GPRS. You'd have to use your own isp!

    The screen is nice tho...

    Just saw this thread. The 9290 has some nice features, such as a GORGEOUS display, but the 2 reasons I traded mine in for a Treo 300 are 1) size of phone and 2) no high speed data. I used the phone to connect to my corporate and pop email, as well as some light web surfing. The download speed is incredibly slow compared to CDMA2000 or equivalent. Although this phone has tons of features, I wouldn't trade in my Treo for the world (ok, at least until the Kyocera 7135 or Samsung i500 come out

    I'm sorry to bring this topic back from the grave. I too am looking at the Nokia 9290. One main reason is the battery life.

    I had the Treo 270 when it first was available(on the long waiting list) and have suffered with poor battery performance (2hr talk time, you gotta be kidding me). I find myself recharging the darn thing once a day.

    I don't do any foreign travel, so I don't have to worry about going to Europe or Asia. I also don't use GPRS, look at the price, GPRS is horribly expensive.

    The size is the only thing that defeats the Nokia 9290 in my eyes. But I used to carry a Handspring Prism/VisorPhone combo back in the day!
