I am a big Windows Mobile fan.  I have looked at the Treo - definitely last year's news.  If you are looking for a new/cool WM device, the Cingular 8525 is the newest/hottest thing, as well as the Blackjack and Q, depending on your preferred keyboard layout.

But otherwise I agree - this iPhone is nifty due to the large storage amount and overall sexiness, but otherwise strictly "meh".  Without a keyboard, it will never go beyond personal users.  Seems like it will mostly compete with iPods.

Opps, I forgot, the treo doesn't have that little gadget that shuts off near your face.

These things have been around for a while, every now and then someone adds a few new things.  When you really look at it, theres not much new.

Nifty? - yes

Innovation explosion? - no

Yeah, my Treo 700wx is a 4gb mp3 player already. Has MS Office and pretty much any other functionality I want can be added through the vast library of Windows Mobile 5 software out there. Neat, but I don't see me buying one. That, and I don't like Cingular.

I just noticed some shady billing practices. They couldn't explain a bunch of charges on my Grandma's bill, not even to me, and that scares me. They also have 40 dollar data plans and spotty coverage, from my observations. I live in Central Ohio, so that last thing can probably be overlooked, but yeah. I just....don't like them....

Their phone whoring annoys me too....

I don't know if I would skip them over my opinion if I were you, but I know I'll never deal with them again.

Ok...   Yeah, the coverage I'll find out about soon enough, and if it doesn't work I'll switch back or something.

Right now I have a phone with TMobile - great data support, international functionality, cool phones, but crappy coverage, and a phone with Verizon - super coverage, but crappy phones, crappy data support, and super-crappy international coverage.

My understanding of Cingular is that it has the international support and data support (although they charge more for data than TMobile), and have much better coverage than TMobile).  They also have the 8525, which is the phone I want.

We shall see - thanks for the info.

That would be pretty cool.

Or maybe they will unveil the everlasting internet rumor. The iPhone.

I called it. This thing is amazing.

Still vaguely anxious about switching companies.
