Sorry i was away a few days. My wife just had our 2nd baby :)
The 650 works beautfully. We have probrably 300 in the field at this
point except for one little problem...
They started using non volitale ram instead of the old ram. It's
great because even if the battery dies you dont lose data. What sucks
is even if you allocate 1 byte in storage ram, the NVFS manager
allocates 512. This can make palm databases with lots of little records
blow up to 10x their sizes. Luckily because hotsync sucks at
tranmitting lots of records anyhow, we were already packing our records
so it didn't impact us at all.
PalmOne's mistake wasn't going with NVFS. It was not increasing the
amount ram. Bad PalmOne.
Aside from that, the treo 650 is really nice.
There's also a 10MB limit now on one palm database because of the way
the memory manager caches plam databases but i doubt many every get that
