    Anyone else seen this. It's on their site now.

    How well will this phone be compared to the new Treo coming out for the cingular platform.

    I'm at a point where I would like to switch to cingular to try out the new Treo supposidly coming out this October, however, Tmobile came out with this new toy.


    Should I switch and join the many treo lovers or should I stay with T-mobile and try this new phone out. You're thoughts are greatly appriciated.

    Look at the form factor closely - look at the amount of space that appears to be "wasted" between the screen and the 5-way buttons. Look at the width, look at the screen size itself. Those are just beginning points. The key layout looks nothing like the Treo series and when comparing one-handed operation, the Treo series is normally the one to compare against.

    My 700w looks better. If Windoz were really the way to go I would look at the 700wx. Ben

    This phone received positive reviews from Engadget. It all depends on how you feel about Windows Mobile 5 smartphone. The form factor appears nice. I think you'll have more choices tomorrow.Wink Palm has a press conference scheduled for 1 pm where they are expected to announce the Palm Treo 680 - a GSM phone.

    Thanks for the replies...

    Yes, I can’t wait for tomorrow and see what new phones will be announced.

    Ben - answering your question as to why I wouldn’t get the 700wx. I need a GPRS phone and currently Sprint doesn’t offer this. Believe me, i was looking into it and almost jumped to get one but decided to hold off.

    Chris - I'm a smartphone guy. From the MPX200, 220, I’ve loved the smartphone. Even in its early flaws I still love the capabilities of the windows mobile.

    I guess I'll see what happens tomorrow and gauge it from there. If Treo really is coming out with a cingular windows mobile 5 OS in October time frame that would probably be my choice. If it's later in December, knowing my impatient I’ll get the DASH and then when Treo comes out, i'll switch.

    Not to confuse matters, but you can expect a GSM version of the Motorola Q probably around the December timeframe. All in all, you'll have a lot of choices come December.

    The new Treo 680 will be out within the next month. I believe the mid-2007 applied to various world markets.

    ah... but as a Palm OS, yes?

    Yes, which is a good thing. The Palm OS is the easiest to use and they made further improvements to the UI.

    Had it. Junk. Crashed all the time. Major hardware problems also. Went thru 4 in 1 year. Do not buy!
