“Here is an interesting item which will certainly create some chat in the BB vs. Treo world – today Palm announced the release of a BlackBerry connect Treo 650, to be offered exclusively through Cingular.
This is basically a Treo which can be used with a BlackBerry Enterprise Server. So now, at least in concept, this might be the best of all worlds – the bells and whistles or the Treo married to the security and easy of administration of the Blackberry server. The obvious downside here is that they are only offering it on the 650 model which is pretty much already obsolete, and only on Cingular. When it is offered on the 700 and upcoming 750 – it will certainly be more compelling.
I would sure like to hear from anybody who does actually buy this device and uses it with a BES server. I ‘d like to know if it’s as good as Palm says it is – and how it negotiates the Palm OS with the BlackBerry interface. Thanks in advance to anyone who cares to report on it.”
