    I would go with even the 7290 over the treo. I've owned both. But if you are looking for a flashy phone with a cam then that's the treo.

    I never have used a treo and for some reason, I don't really like the look of it in comparison to a blackberry. The 8700 makes it even more outstanding!

    I also heard that the Palm/Treo arrangement will cease on 1/1/2006. Don't know exactly what that means in the grand scheme of things, but my IT guy told me that Palm will no longer have 'Treo' devices. So I went BB.

    I think I just read somewhere that RIM may buy palm. RIM would then Own treo.

    But to answere your question you are much better off with the BB. I have the 7290 and it is far and away the better choice.

    The new Treo will use Windows Mobile instead of Palm OS. It will apparently be called the Treo 700w.

    I too use both, the 7290 for business and the Treo650 for my personal. The only reason I used the Treo was because the Treo Rep gave it to me. As a PDA its great, but to me personally the phone is really poor. Treo is suppose to launch a new unit with a better phone soon.

    P.S. The Treo is now in the drawer..

    I had the 650 also. I would always get complaints when on the phone. People would hear me cut in and out all the time. Plus the treo freezes up and crashes. BB is a more stable device.

    Before I purchased my Treo 650, I had a 7100. The only reason I didn't stick with the 7100 was because it was lacking EDGE data speeds. I believe the 8700 will win over lots of Treo users because of this.

    I use both a Treo 650 and BB8700r. The Treo I need because of the medical software/apps I need on a daily basis...but it is my second-line phone. The BB8700r is my main phone that I carry around ALL the time.

    Sounds like the blackberry has this thing won.

    Is there a treo forum site. Does anyone like them the way we like the bb?
