HP iPAQ hw6500 may be my Treo killer

I was checking out my mobile device/gadget sites today and saw some awesome hands-on pics of the upcoming HP iPAQ hw6500 on engadget. This looks almost like a Windows Mobile Treo 650 and has the following specs; quad-band GSM/GPRS with an Intel 312MHz Xscale CPU, 64MB RAM, 64MB flash, 8MB NVRAM, 2.2 x 2.2-inch 65k color transflective QVGA screen, SDIO slot, miniSD slot, 1.2-megapixel camera with MPEG-4 and H.263 support, 2.5mm headphone jack, class II Bluetooth, IrDA, GPS, and EDGE support. The GPS is a cool feature, but not necessary with my awesome Pharos BT GPS. I do like the dual expansion slots where I can use a WiFi SD card with a miniSD memory card. I may need to think about selling my PDA2K or Treo 650 soon to get one of these babies. My only reservation right now is how well the keyboard will be integrated. I also don’t know if this will have Windows Mobile 2005 on it and it is better to wait for it since the release is imminent.
