Treo 600 Smartphone

I can't wait until June 18th, 2005. On that date, Verizon Wireless is going to let me upgrade my piece of crap phone. I could do it today, but if I wait until that day, I get $100 off. Getting that large a discount can get me into a smartphone for not a lot of coin. I'm leaning towards a Palm Treo 600 ($150 after rebate). I've always been a Windows CE user, but I no longer want to carry a dedicated PDA. This should give me the ability to blog or even moblog.

Yes, I know that there's a later version of the Treo, the 650. It adds a better screen, bluetooth and a couple of hundred dollars to the price. It's easy for me to justify a $150 Phone / PDA. It's much tougher to justify a $350 phone / PDA. For $350, whatever I got would have to come with WiFi and neither of the Treo's do.

I guess I'll be looking for a cheap 1G SD card soon...

Your brother-in-law has a Treo 600 (or maybe 650 - not sure). You might want to ask him what he thinks about his. That is if you have a couple of hours free to talk on the phone. :)YFML
