    its only GSM. it it dosnt have 3G or broadband; its not worth it. if I want the internet in my pocket I want broadband speeds. I'm not getting it. because of this; its not a treo killer.

    My 680 is GSM, I also agree it will not kill, but it will give us another choice as a consumer, I am also a Mac person and I will not switch till the 3rd Gen becomes available.

    you're right, it's not a Treo killer as the Treo is already dead.

    tough for many to admit around here though

    Sad but true. Palm is the Treo killer, not anyone else...

    Not dead yet, form factor is too good to ignore, and more importantly still better than most (if not all) smartphones.

    But I think it will be dead soon, unless they start catching up: more memory, better BT, 4:3 screen, GPS, etc. etc. Palm has ignored these factors for WAYYYYY too long

    people are in fact ignoring the form factor. many are tired with its brick-like feel and heaviness.....why many are trying so many different and more modern/stream-lined alternatives.

    if it ain't dead it's close to.

    Me too.

    I was kinda hoping I might be able to secure one by that previous Monday but it is not looking good. In fact, now I may not be able to get them until Saturday morning. They might be sold out in the retail locations by then.

    I suppose I could hope to get one by ordering through the iTunes Store on Friday if they have that set up by then.

    Its not a big deal for a few, but it will be a very big deal for a great many....

    The iphone is going to do very, very well. It sleek, its interesting, its innovative.

    The lack of broadband speeds will certainly NOT hold it back.
    Apple will sell twice as many iphones as palm will sell treos, which I agree, are dead.

    Just sit back and watch.

    Will that hold true if you can start getting Widgets for the iPhone?

    Widgets might be more useful on the iPhone.

    But FWIW, I've disabled my Dashboard (I'm still scarred emotionally because I let my Chia pet widget die...but I digress.)

    I'm thinking that having access to a variety of apps for things you've grown accustom to WILL be a major factor for many tempted to leave Palm OS. I know I really am hoping for a password program like SplashID. I've become VERY reliant on it. After watching clips from Jobs interview at the Wall Street Journal D Conference, I think Jobs will have some good news on this front next Tuesday during his keynote. He just didn't want to let the cat out of the bag...

    Probably an att store. My wife is a cop and gets off at 3:00 AM. We may go to a store then for fun. I know I'm nuts.

    There was a time when I drove a hundred miles out of the way to get to a specific sprint store in Chattanooga that was posted on the register.com to have a prototype treo 650. The did and I played with it. Fun Fun Fun

    Sadly I remember that

    And that's where you confirmed the VGA camera when everyone was saying it was 1.2mp right?

    I noticed on an iPhone commercial the Answer/End icons on the screen for answering a call were the reverse of most every phone out there (Answer on the Right, End on the Left)..wonder why...

    Because a person grasping it in the right hand will find the thumb more naturally reaches the Answer icon in that position.

    Me, I hold my Treo with my left. :-)

    I would think the opposite is the case..it's far easier to extend your thumb to reach across the screen rather than contract it...I hold it in my left hand as well.

    Agreed. Either would work but Apple have in right in my book (presuming you hold it in your left hand, want to use your left thumb, and answer more calls than you reject).
