Hello all

come august it will be 18 months since my last purchase of a phone so i'll recieve $150 off the Treo 650. Ever since it came out I've wanted one really really bad.

Please post all your reasons why NOT to get one. All i've heard are great things.

Thanks

Has anyone confirmed if you can or can't use the Palm SD Wifi card in the 650?

Even if it did, I'd rather it be built in so you can stick a fat memory card into the SD slot.

Function VS. Form.

What is your preference. I'm all about function. That is why I lug around Pocket PC. My boss about form. He doesn't care if its fully functional. He wants it to be small and sleek. He carries around a Treo 650.

In a more recent issue of MPC (mid/late '04) they showed a WiFi card with a built in 256MB or memory on one of those Tested N Geek Approved things, IIRC.

Yeah, those have been around in CF form for a while. The first one was buggy, the second was less buggy, the third was no less buggy (as in the wi-fi would only work half the time, the memory would get corrupted, etc., etc., etc.) But then they made them in SD form. For some reason, those have all worked fine. So, go for it.

Oh, and about functionality vs. form, Check this out. I have one, it's a lot more useful than I first thought it would be. It's so friggin tiny! But not everyone has $1600 to spend on a tablet with a 5" screen, so make sure you have a decent comp first. But with a cellular CF card, the U50/U71 can become the most useful productivity / entertainment tool ever.
