This thread was moved from a Treo 700p forum to an iPhone forum.
The purpose of the thread was to find out whether users of the 700p think, due to the problems with their unit, the iPhone presents a reasonable alternative. Moving it to a forum where few 700p users will see it, sort of, defeats the purpose.
Who ever moved it didn't understand the nature of, nor the intent of, the poll.
The thread isn't about the iPhone, rather it is about users of one type of PDA considering an alternative.
Please consider moving back to the forum whose user's input is being sought.

i agree with Tasty.......Treo is dying a slow death and the iPhone will be hugely successful......both unrelated to each other.......
everytime i pick up my old Treo (still have one in a drawer) i laugh at how heavy and big the thing is.....that's what is killing it. it's overweight and it's old.

Iphone will be huge success but unrelated to Treo. I work in IT and everyone and their mother brings me their new smart phone so I can show them how it works.
Everytime I hold something, everytime I traverse OS's and try to manipulate data, I think how much cooler my Treo is.
There is no match in the market.
Iphone has cool two finger touch screen. Treo beats it appwise in every other sense.
BTW look at the join date. People at that time were:
pissed because Palm was ignoring their needs.
pissed because there was a new brighter phone on the horizon.
pissed because there were no new phone innovations.

[I am also a Sprint Broadband customer. I cannot imagine that most people will buy a 2G phone from a company that offers 3G in only a limited number of markets. Before I signed up with Sprint, I called the local Cingular store and asked when they expected to have 3G coverage in my Zip Code. "Not in 2007" was the answer. As a sometimes savvy consumer, I asked the obvious follow-up question and got an equally unsatisfying answer. Cingular talks a good 3G story but to the extent that they walk the walk, they are dragging their feet.]

shows that there are 117M UMTS/HSDPA users in the world but only 2.5M of them are in North America. The good news is that most of those were added in the last quarter. Compare to the Sprint EVDO users. [There may even be a few Verizon EVDO users.]

Personally, if Sprint were to have an iPhone, I'd buy it without question only because it looks sexy and I like having the latest and greatest. I'm not going to leave Sprint for AT&T just to buy the iPhone. I guess it's a shame that Apple didnt make the iPhone for all carriers. That would have been something to rave about.
My current 700p sits in a drawer somewhere. I was so disgusted by its BT performance that I've decided to use my 6700 until something is done about the "p"

iPhone does One Handed Operation Better Than Anyone Else
Last night Apple released 3 iPhone ads that speak TRUTH to the LIES that the iPhone needs two hands to be operated.
See for yourselves:
Yeah, the iPhone is going to absolutely destroy the Treo. And the Blackberry. And the Motorolla Q. And the Nokia NSeries. And EVERYTHING ELSE OUT THERE!

As for not being the brightest bulbs...... the word you were looking for was "weren't" not "went".
Pot, meet kettle.

I have been a Palm user since 1999 and now have a Treo 750v that I bought unlocked for lots of money right when it came out. I used to use my Palm a lot for business, not as much now. However, I am definitely going to look at the iPhone.
I can see the iPhone having an impact both positive and negative on the consumer type phones that Palm introduced, such as the 680. Consumers who like the iPhone, but cant justify the cost, might lean towards the 680, but just as well at any of the lower end PDA/Multimedia devices and iPhone knockoffs/clones that are bound to show up. On the other hand, those who were looking at the 680 or the like, might now forsake it for the iPhone.
However, there is one super important aspect to the iPhone that has very little to do with specs and everything with the cool factor. Thats why, even though there are many MP3 players with better specs than the iPod, most choose the iPod, cuz its cool.
The intro of the Foleo to me seems that Palm has lost its way. Instead of strengthing its lineup, both existing devices (updated ROMS etc) or new devices (better bluetooth, WiFi) it comes out with some kind of companion device that I am sure very few of the Palm owners on this site would use.
I feel that my 750v is an orphan, no ROM updates, no WM6. Its still an excellent device but I lust for the iPhone
