Treo impulse
I'm posting this from the Treo 650 I just bought on impulse when I went in to see about switching my AT&T plan too Cingular. I didn't expect them to be in stock. I am weak.

I'll probably be selling my old Clie NZ90 and T616 phone soon if anyone is interested.

I am: geeky geeky

I am week
And apparently tired.

Then again, I would be if I were 7 days long too...

Oop. Yeah, I am tired. Fixed.

Tell me how it is. I've been eying it since it came out but it's not yet available through T-mobile and I'm not ready to go back to the customer service hell of AT&T, whether or not it's rebranded to Cingular.

I might be interested in the organizer, but I doubt there's a cell network up here that phone can even talk to...

Yeesh... like you needed another gadget. Next you'll get a hole drilled in your skull :).

Seriously, though, you'll find that it has some quirks in common with the T5 (I have one of those). Notably, the Grafitti 1 hack does not work on the new flash-based Palm devices. If you really want the unistroke i and t then you need to buy either Jot or TealScript. Otherwise get used to Grafitti 2.

Also, check the sync connector. Palm One switched "standard" connectors again with the T5; it might have done the same with the T650.

No Grafitti on the Treo650 - keyboard only fot text input. At least by default. I may look into 3rd party apps like Jot or TealScript if I feel I really need it.

No input area...

No wonder the T650 screen is so small.

Personally, I think I'd hate that. I find the T5 to be barely adequate regarding real estate.

It is 320x320. It is physically small, but hi-res and very sharp. My NZ90 was 320x480 with a virtual grafitti area - same as the T5 I think.
