Re: treo vs. iphone

I agree with most of what you said in this post. I'll also add that I don't want to switch providers or have the much slower data speed. I have a Treo 700P on Sprint, which is an EVDO phone. I understand Apple wanting to go GSM for the global market, but high speed data in the US is light years ahead on CDMA. Also, I pay $15/month for unlimited data on Sprint. How much more would I have to pay on Cingular? If they come out with a UMTS version that will work on the stuff T-mo is rolling out, I'll think about it then. If they come out with a Sprint EVDO version, I'll buy it immediately if I can live with the "keyboard".

Re: treo vs. iphone

Cingular has UMTS/HSDPA in a number of major cities, with an aggressive build-out going on. So they're closing the gap on 3G performance. Of course, the iPhone has WiFi, so if you're in a city you're probably next to a Starbucks or Panera or something with a HotSpot.
