Finally, it's about time. It's a great little phone with a great Blazer web browser.
Although it is much more fragile than most models of BlackBerry in construction, it is a better jack-of-all-trades device (albiet still master-of-few with various compromises which makes many people stick with BlackBerry), I know some people really love the Treo's. Great little MP3 players with GPS capability, something that BlackBerry does not yet do. That would make Treo's better multimedia machines than BlackBerry, even if not as usefully good email/instant messaging machine as BlackBerry (for these reasons in this article). The 650 does resolves many of the 600's shortcomings.
I am looking forward to trying out the 650 and seeing how it compares to the New Verizon BlackBerry 7250 and other models such as 7290, 7100, etc. The Treo 650 does indeed have one of the best web browsers available for a phone of its size.
(Note: This 7250 link is February 1st brand new, with photographs - it uses an EV-DO capable chip too. Even RIM has not yet announced the model 7250 yet!)Thanks,

yes and no...

In the grand scheme of things, that's true, but of course you know there are server solution (Good, Intellisync, etc) that are as robust as the great and powerful BES. The Treo can indeed be part of a total enterprise-focused instant push email solution, just like the BB you love so much.
I don't want to get into a huge debate here, I just wanted to point out that the Treo often gets short shrift for its email capability, when all it needs is a server solution, just like the BES. BBs are excellent email devices, and the Treo can be the same.
