Out of interest, who's got one now, or thinking about getting one?

My current phone (T68i) does everything I need, but contacts/scheduling is a bit limited. I bought a very cheap Palm (refurbed Clie SJ-20) and I've found that I'm only really using it for the contacts and scheduling.

Given the reviews of the Treo, it seems like the logical choice (assumming I can convince Orange to give me a cheap enough upgrade).

How are you finding it so far?

been seriously considering it for a while, as I currently carry a Palm, phone and MP3 player. Put it off as didn't consider I had enough info, so will be interested to know how you find it.

but my provider doesn't really support them well, nor do they have a discoutn on them. I decided to wait.

Cingular. I think they will technically work, but they are not offered as a phone option in the stores

Yup - 180. Really really really want a 600 (esp as the 180 keeps playing up), but cannot afford it. I need to send the 180 into Dabs for repairs, but am putting it off as I bet they'll keep it for bloody ages, & I am incapable of managing my life without it. *sniffle*

I've had my eye on the Treo 270 for a while. They've really come down in price now:

The only drawback is they don't have a camera, but you can buy an attachment for palm OS that I presume would work with it:

It's a bit hard justifying the purchase of these when we're on one income though :-/

Actually, scratch that, I've just read that the 270 does not have a card slot, therefore is not expandable. What's the use of that!
