Re: Treo 650 vs. BB
As a device, my BlackBerry is as someone else has mentioned ROCK SOLID, as far as applications go without crashing. I think I may have had to pull the battery off my Blackberry once in the year that I've had it and that was because of an unsupported 3rd-party application. Voice quality on the blackberry with a GSM network is great if you can call with a phone number. If you are using push-to-talk, call quality can suck at times. Either your call gets garbled and digitally "blended" or you can't get a connection at all. GSM doesn't seem to work well inside of buildings and is notorious for its mile-wide "dead zones". (areas that are supposed to be well covered due to proximity of a service tower, but because of landscape, buildings, or maybe proximity to other towers, you can't get decent signal strength or may drop calls frequently)
If you can live with it's annoying navigation wheel and don't need to run palm applications, I'd go for a CDMA-based blackberry.
