    Hi everybody,

    I'm starting this thread because I live in the UK where we dont have the treo 650 yet (on networks anyway). I am planning to upgrade my mobile telephone, and was going to get the Sony-Ericson p910i which looked rather spanking until I saw the new treo. I have always liked the treo 600, but its lack of some features put me off. Now the Treo 650 is out, I am looking for a bit of advice on a few things to help me decide which to buy.

    Cases: what is a good case for the 650? I dont want it to make the Treo really fat, but I want it to protect it well. Cases with the clear plastic over the screen, can you still use the stylus through this?

    Telnet: does anyone know if I can run older palm apps on the Treo 650? What I would really like to be able to do is to use it to telnet into my servers...

    Versus: which is 'better' do you guys think? I think the p910i will retain its value for longer (if I intend to sell it after a year) but the Treo looks better. Is it really?

    Thanks everyone.

    oh, and 1 more thing: the keyboard on the Treo is important to me becuase I really want a keyboard. I know the p910i has one but it looks a bit limp. Is that so? Is the Treo 650 keyboard any good?

    Treos keyboards are in general the best in their form factor. Treo 300 keyboard was on par or better than pager-blackberry ones, and thier current one is slightly less accurate than the current generation of RIMs (but much smaller). From what I hear the Sony P9x generation keyboards are flimsy at best. Suffers from the same problem as flip-phone keyboards.
