    Curious if anyone has heard anything. I love my Treo 650, but I have to stick with it as the 700 is Windows Mobile OS. It surprises me that Apple hasnt gotten into mobile yet.

    As far as I know, you've got the best one around. Maybe check out the iSync device support page for more info?

    I don't know if BlackBerry works or not, but it would be cool if it did.

    EDIT Nokia Series 60 smartphones work, and they even copy over your Address Book Pictures (Bluetooth sync only though).

    Def'ly agree best around for now. But if Palm is bowing out of OS and planning to only handle hardware combined with MS stepping majorly into the mobile OS space, I can see a need in foreseeable near-term future for an Mac-based Mobile OS or atleast another company like Palm that was great for Mac and PC.

    I've got a Treo 650 and it is probably the best phone I've ever had. It truly sucks that Palm is becoming just a hardware company and leaving the os side of things to Microsuck. Unless something better comes along that will work with my Mac, I'm stuck with the 650...which isn't that in the grand scheme of things.

    Switch

    I used the Treo 650 for about three months on the Sprint Network. I like the keyboard, but the service in my area wasn't the best. I was on roaming most of the time, and was spending too much $$ in charges. The screen was crisp & bright. I switched from a windows smartphone to the treo, and it was well worth it.

    I no have a Nextel i870 because of the coverage in my area.

    Treo 650 Great Phone

    Yes, BlackBerry's sync quite well with OS X and have the better keyboard, IMO.
