Great deal!

So $550 with the 3 year plan at, say, $49/month, that would be...

oh! only $2400.00! Sign me up today! What a bargain!

Yeah, but thats Canadian, so it end up being something like:
Phone $350 + monthly service $10.50 x36 = $350 + $378 = $723.

OK, it mightn't be that good, but it would be better than the $250 roaming charge T-Mobile slugged me for using cellular modem for 3 days in Canada last month :)

wish it can work in Fido network in Canada. Stupid how Rogers bought out Fido and we can't use the 650 on Fido.

I wonder how this thing compares to RIM's Blackberry? It looks like a good all-in-one solution.

It depends on which system your company is compatible with... do they have a Blackberry server, direct Microsoft Exchange access, or both?

BTW I bought my Treo 600 for $600 after 2 year contract... so this new 650 is an awesome deal imo.
