If you can find the 270, don't bothering getting it . Get the Treo 600 or 650.

Excerpt: I have used the Treo's 300, 600 and now the 650. Not to mention a T-Mobile Sidekick, the AT&T Motorola MPX, a Nextel Blackberry, a Samsung i600, and Treo's are the absolute gods of cell phones!!! The Palm source OS software is very stable, much more then Microsoft's Pocket PC. The battery life on the Treo 600 & 650 is insane!
Excerpt: Having used the 270 for three months in the Bay Area with Cingular, the findings are rather mixed: Pluses: The overall user model merging and linking PDA and telecom functions are very good. Although voice activation and bluetooth support would be welcomed, the basic integration of lookup, dialing, last call logs, caller id linking to the address db are all well thought out. The ability to easily link the data with Palm and/or Outlook data works very smoothly.
Excerpt: Yes, it is a PDA and a Phone, however, I don't particularly like the one little light bulb that is in the upper right hand of the display. If you observe the other displays of its class, you will see that they'll have up to 7 or 8 bulbs to act as a backlight. Now, I hear in WirelessWeek that they are recalling the phone because of a "technical glitch". Whatever that means, right? Also, when is handspring going to support GPRS so we can access the net and email faster?
