I think the phrase "Rave Reviews" is appropriate here - looks like it'll be well worth getting one.

Once I do so, I will (probably) no longer need:

Camera/RadioPhone: Nokia 7250
Data Cable for the above.
MP3 player: Panasonic e-wear SV-SD85
PDA: Handspring Visor Deluxe
Keyboard: Targus Stowaway.

Dunno how much of that is worth ebaying, so shout if you want to make an offer.

I'm almost ertainly going to get one too, though I was disappointed that it's not Bluetooth 'cos I want one of them funky headsets. Do you know if there's going to be a Treo keyboard at all?

Keyboard

Actually sourcing one in the UK is left as an exercise for the reader.

Oh and SD-IO cards should supply bluetooth and/or WiFi.

Well, I want to replace my old Nokia, probably. Will the SIM from my current one go into yours? If so, I'm quite happy to sort something out with you.

I've been told that the MP3 player on the Treo 600 is too quiet and too poor on sound quality to be much use.

I'd love a pda but can't afford to give you anything near a sensible price for it unless you want to take instalments.

Try an offer. Visor Deluxe, are getting on a bit now.

On Ebay, you can get £100 ish for the Nokia, though I can't find any products that are comparable to the Palm or the MP3 player that are near ending. I would imagine they're definitely worth ebaying though, just watch a few comparable items for a week or so first to see what to set your reserve at.

Well...

I'm interested 7250...

See what goes etc with demand vs. offers / price etc.

What network is it currently on?

Cheers

How easy is the PDA and keyboard to use, and what is the battery life like?

PDA is very user-friendly in its basic functions, and the keyboard is remarkably usable. Battery life I can't actually recall as I've not used it in months. Not bad though, IIRC.

I'm tempted - does it include the gubbins for uploading and downloading stuff to a PC?

If so quote me a price.

Yup, got the cradle for it (might even have 2). I should think 50 quid for the device, cradle and keyboard would be fair, but I'll have to offer it to people in the order that they posted replies here.

I'll take it at that price, unless vicki_t_veg wants it?

Pleeease can I have it? I can afford that price.
