Moving that much closer to getting another Treo 650

Uh oh, I just found a great resource for getting PDF files on a Treo 650, which was one of the major issues preventing me from going with this awesome device. Cook Consulting Services offers a PDF conversion service for $40 per year where you send the PDF in via email and it comes back to you as a JPG image with all text, drawings, etc. intact.

I also found out that the HTC Wizard may be delayed until October now and I am getting antsy to try an EDGE enabled device out now that T-Mobile reportedly has EDGE is 90% of its coverage area. I LOVED the Treo form factor and am very leery of the Windows Mobile 5.0 keyboard integration and am worried I may just use the thumb keyboard for text entry and not for stylus-free use. Don’t be surprised if you read here that another Treo 650 is on the way 🙂

    I just wanted to mention the great software called Repligo. Repligo can convert PDF’s so that they take less space and it works very well. Check it out at

    Kindest regards

    Mr. Andr�e,

    I know about RepliGo and personally LOVE the application. The problem is that I have to first convince everyone who sends me PDF files to first convert the documents using RepliGo. I hope that RepliGo becomes the new standard for mobile devices. I wish there was some way to have documents converted into RepliGo similar to the service I mentioned that converts them to JPG files. I think I’ll contact the guy who offers the service and see if he can convert to RepliGo instead, now that would be AWESOME!!!

    Try to get your hands on the Picsel Viewer that came with the Samsung i539 – it can view PDFs natively.

    I love my Treo 650! 😉
