After bouncing around with trying to use two devices since I sold off my PDA2K and Treo 650, I found a deal and bought another Treo 650. It arrived yesterday and I loaded up a custom ROM that go rid of Versamail and RealPlayer. I prefer Chatter Email and Pocket Tunes and may build a custom ROM that puts those apps and Agendus into the ROM. I love that Shadowmite from TreoCentral came up with a tool that lets you customize the ROM similiar to what XDA Developers people do for HTC Phone Edition devices.
The package I bought included a cradle, which is very cool since an extra battery stores and charges in a hidden flip down pocket of the cradle. I also received a RhinoSkin Aluminum hard case with a plastic window on it that I am using now. The seller included the Treo Bluetooth headset that I am going to try out soon too.
Oh yeah, another major reason I went with the 650 instead of the TORQ was the EDGE capability. I ran the speed test at home last night and only received 40 kbps, but at work in Seattle I saw 122 kbps so EDGE appears to be on in some areas!
It is nice being back with the Treo since palmOne, now Palm Inc., did such a great job at implementing the keyboard into the OS. I can do most everything with the directional pad and am very happy with the Treo. I also found the speakerphone volume to be decent with the new ROM, but will try the VolumeCare application out as well.
