Default Anybody use the Treo 650 Cell phone/PDA?

I'm starting to miss alot of appointments, and want to have some sort of PDA. I figured it'd be wise to integrate the PDA into the cell phone, in order to cut down on the electronics I have to carry around. Anybody use this phone with comments on it?

Everything I've read about the 650 says it's wonderful, except the lack of WiFi (or lack of drivers for the SDIO 802.11 card). Personally I would hate carrying around something that big, so I got a Smartphone instead (Audiovox SMT5600). I too was missing/forgetting about appointments, so it has been pretty good to me.

I also have Napoleon Dynamite on my 512mb miniSD card in the phone, so I can be like GOSH anytime I want.

I have the Treo 600 and it's been great for me. I'd really love to have a higher resolution screen, which the 650 has. Other than that, it does everything I need it to do.

As far as it being big. It's not that big. It fits nicely in my jeans pocket. I wouldn't really want it much smaller with a QWERTY thumb keyboard.

I have the treo650 and its an amazing phone. Go to treocentral.com and read about all the upgrades you can have. I have a 2 Gig card and this thing just amazes me. Get one you will never miss another appointment.

Not even in the same league. The only thing it has better than the Treo 600 is it's screen resolution. Nothing else even comes close on that phone.
