    This is an impressive little package. 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.

    Stop buying the iPhone because everyone else has one. The Dash by T Mobile has been out longer (which means that it is less likely to have errors that are so prone to first generation technologies). This thing is quite tiny and very thin, which is a relief for people that don't want to carry a brick in their pocket.

    This phone is great so far. The WiFi is awesome. The touch bar is a little wacky. If its humid enough it will scroll all by itself. I fixed it by adjusting the sensitivity. I have been getting complements from treo owners.
