Conclusion: The Palm Treo 650 is a great all-around replacement for that old PDA and cell phone rattling around in your pocket. Sure, the software is a little buggy and the OS has more band-aids than a burn victim, but the stylish package and all-around convenience far outweigh these minor annoyances. Just be prepared to drop an extra $175-$250 for the essential add-ons, like a desktop cradle, DC charging cord, SD memory card, and Bluetooth headset.
Pros: Tight integration of PalmOS with phone features; optional camera; Bluetooth
Excerpt: PalmOne's Treo 650 aims to address some of the criticisms aimed at its predecessor, the 600 - namely the lack of Bluetooth and the difficulty of operating the phone without a stylus. The 650 also has an improved screen and call answer and end buttons, so it feels more like a phone. The 650 is almost exactly the same size as the 600, but is 10g heavier at 178g.
Excerpt: PalmOne must be feeling the pinch. RIM, which makes the BlackBerry range of devices, recently knocked PalmOne off the top spot for PDA market share, according to research by Gartner. PalmOne's reaction is to bring out the Treo 650, an update to the Handspring-branded Treo 600. The most obvious change is the screen. Gone is the lacklustre 160 x 160 pixel passive-matrix screen.
