You're saying you can't push on BB? Isn't that the whole point of BB?

you can't push on a Treo 600.

in all honesty, if you don't have to make a choice now, then wait until the Treo 650's are off their exclusive to Sprint (unless they're your provider) and get one of those. i believe that will be Palm's first handheld that will be blackberry-enabled.

i've played with a BB 6710, a BB 7230, a BB 7730, and i own a BB 7100t. i personally prefer the Treo 600 over all of these, except the price differences (its comparable to a 77xx series BB).

i do not place a high priority on email, however. so i would look at that as your decision point - do you want instant, "pushed" email -or- do you want functionality and affordable and useful 3rd party product offerings...?

I've owned the 600 and the 7230 and now the 7100t. The major benefit to the 600 is the ability to load many other applications and programs like Doc-to-go are head and shoulders above eOffice on the 7100. However, typeing email and memos on the 7100 is head and shoulders above the 600 and you have to add third party software to even come close to the 7100 for text input. Further, the 7100 (even before the release of the latest software upgrade) is far more stable than the 600. With the upgrade it moves even further up in stability. The Bluetooth profiles that are supported work really well and the screen beats the 600 screen in resolution and clarity. Battery life is far better too. RF is hard to gauge becasue it is so carrier and location dependent. I had Sprint for the 600 and T-mobile for the 7100t. Sprint's coverage was better, its data speed was better but you have that ugly antenna and voice clarity was never as good as the 7100. No comparison on speaker phone mode either. The 7100 wins hands down. In my area (Riverside Ca) signal varies and can be great to poor. In Orange County (Newport Beach area signal is fantastic and reception is outstanding. In Washington D.C Crystal City and the Navy Yard areas the signal was great and reception was outstanding. So it really depends. I wish testers would actually measure the receiver and transmitter performance, give us published specifications and comparisons along with the meaning.
