Imagine this hypothetical time (feel free to modify if the times appear wrong)
keyboard already on screen.
tap the first 4 letters of the name - 4 seconds.
tap on the contact to dial.1
Total 5 seconds
Press the letter you want. 1
scroll through the list, which could be one screen or 3-4 screens. 0-20 seconds
tap on the contact to dial. 1
Total 2 to 22 seconds
The first seems more predictable, and will on average probably be faster.

This is pretty hilarious. Not true, but funny anyways.
Cupertino, CA – If you want to see the iPhone at an Apple store, be sure to bring some cash. Large crowds flocking to see the iPhone and next generation iPods have forced Apple to begin charging a $5 entrance fee for Apple stores. Many analysts anticipated the move, and expect a positive response from customers.
"Part of the move was to limit crowds to keep the stores safe, but also we wanted to keep the right kind of people in the stores," said vice president of retail outlets, Vince Sciopiano. "By 'right kind of people' I mean true Apple customers with money, willing to pay just to look at our newest wares."
While Apple Geniuses patrol inside the store, Apple "Muscleheads" will guard the window displays and entrances.
For the $5 fee, customers will get an Apple button which will allow them entrance into the store and is used to track the customer's movements. Sciopiano noted that the $5 fee could be applied to purchases on that visit
Customer reaction at a pilot project at the Apple Store in Canoga Park, California was positive. Alexander Hu, an avid Mac user, said, "I don't mind paying $5 to get into the store, if it keeps out the iPhone gawkers and Windows lusers who want to drool over the new Macs."
Not everyone was pleased though. Kyle Martin said, "Five dollars to just walk into the store? It's like they want to be elite snobs or something."
When told of the criticism, Sciopiano said, "That's exactly the case."

Surur, the HP device that you posted is no longer being offered (at least that I can find, or my AT&T rep can find) through business channels. Anyway, I hated that device. It had a nice big screen screen, but the resolution was still 240x240. Another thing that I found interesting talking to my AT&T guy is how bad he says the treo 750 is selling compared to the 8525.

with QVGA screen HSDPA, SIRF III GPS and 3.2 megapixel camera would be quite nice.
However, an Iphone I am sure is a better iPod/Web surfing device. I would actually argue that this device is a better business phone however, due to hard dial pad, WM6 exchange integration and security features, and GPS, which could orientate a lost business man.
