After reading comments here I'm not sure that I want to be an "early adapter".

Great forum, though. I highly recommend anyone seriously considering a Treo 600 spend a couple hours reading the posts there. (Just look out for purpleX and his triplet brothers, purpleY and purpleZ!)

Sometimes the truth just isn't pretty™
