Treo 650

The action with the WRX was captured beautifully with my new toy: a Treo 650. It's a combination PDA and cellular phone that runs PalmOS, and with the data service I picked up with the package, the built-in web browser and email client are actually proving to be fairly handy. Definitely a big step up from the BlackBerry I had while I was at my previous job; the screen and form factor are a huge leap forward, and having a camera built-in (albeit pretty crappy) is a cute gimmicky toy. Battery life is at least as good too (actually, it looks like it's going to be quite a bit better; I should get two or three days out of a charge with my normal usage, which is pretty excessive compared to an average user). Phone and data service coverage with Sprint seems to be pretty good so far, and the data service is a LOT faster than the Nextel service I had the BlackBerry connected to. The SD media slot means this thing can also serve as a portable MP3/OGG/media player too; 2G of audio storage ain't bad. I can bolt the thing up to my desktop via bluetooth and infrared as well, which means one less cable to muck with. I'm pretty happy with it so far. :-)
