+ Palm OS: simple, familiar. Works with my current apps (for my checkbook, etc) You'll have some adjusting. Need new apps.
+ touch screen NEVER, we hope.
Things I like and hope NOT to lose
+ Great call quality. no prob, I read on here of some user complaints on call quality, but it is not universal
+ Tough. I've dropped many times and it's still working fine. ditto. I believe (my opinion) the more recent BBs are more sensitive (8300 model)
+ With a cable the treo can be used as a flash drive. Yes
+ Ability to edit word/excel files on device (using docs to go) ESPECIALLY editing files added using device or SD card as a flash drive (no syncing req'd). This effectively let's me keep my personal docs on the card and access on desktop using flash drive app on trea or card reader and also access them any time through PDA. BB is not so great here, but with certain third party apps, will work. Google on Dynoplex.
+ "Open"... as in it is my personal device. As opposed to a work device that will lock me out every 15 minutes (corporate standard policy) and I can easily add/remove software on my own. If you have a BES Security Policy on it, that is possible, it is up your employer if so. In my case, I have none, and I do what I wish.
+ thumbpad (will get this with a Curve)
+ media player (photos and MP3s mostly) Available, look at mediaPlayer by Dollars5 in our Aftermarket section
+ Ability to synce to work PC and home PC for calender (not too important..) Yes, very possible, just ask how later if needed.
Good luck, enjoy, post back if you need.
