Any obvious advantages over the "Blue Angel"? (Siemens SX66, etc, etc, etc)

1st True attempted at a single handed PPC Phone
I'm a PPC lover, I've owned 3 models by HP, but after playing with the treo 650 in the store for an hour, i decided to go with PalmOne. WOW.. I love the 650, everything about it is awesome.
