  • Ready for this? It's an arcade game, played with your (treo) camera phone, in which you interact with virtual creatures composited onto your real environment. Time to free up some memory on the old treo.

Compared to my beloved treo 650, it trades the 650's touch screen for wifi. I'm convinced that any navigation that involves the treo's touch screen is about five times slower than using the ubiquitous rocker button interface, so that doesn't seem like much of a loss. And the wifi is a huge gain! It's much smaller than the treo. The screen is lower resolution, but the quality seemed on par with the treo 650. Of course it does run Windows Mobile rather than PalmOS. The main reasons I'm afraid of Windows Mobile are: I would have to re-purchase all the apps I already own on PalmOS; I'd have to migrate all my calendar, contact, etc data from the treo; I don't know how well Windows Mobile syncs with linux. I haven't heard great things about Windows Mobile in general, but then PalmOS is nothing to write home about either. It's benefited from nothing but the most cosmetic updates over the past 10 years. They seem to be in the same position Apple was in 2000. If they can successfully make the leap to Access Linux Platform (analogous to Apple's OSX), they might stay ahead of Microsoft. But it looks to me like Palm is currently focusing on new hardware rather than overhauling their aging OS.

Negatives: So light weight you'll forget you're wearing it and you'll walk around looking like a person wearing a bluetooth headset. Disclaimer: I actually have the HBH 600, but I tried the 608 and liked it even better. Warning: It took me a while to figure out how to wear this headset. The speaker portion does not fit tightly in the ear, but once I got it settled it works very well for me. A friend bought this model and never got it to fit quite right with his ear shape.

  • Your life is in your Treo 650 and the life of your Treo 650 is in its battery. Why not have a spare on hand? They've really dropped in price, especially if you pick it up from my friend Patrick at TechBudget.com.
