    I'm in the market for a smartphone, but not sure what to choose as a Mac user.

    It seems that all the new models are on the PocketPC platform, and the only alternative is to get a Treo or SonyEricsson P910, which have both been out for almost a year.

    I would definitely prefer the Palm platform because I have purchased a lot of existing Palm software. But I would also consider Symbian, Blackberry, Linux if necessary. Are there any upcoming releases to look forward to?

    I just got a Treo 650 and I Love it. It's really compact, as a lot of great features. and it fits nicely in the pocket. Search on eBay and you'll get a good deal, if that's the route ya wanna go.

    I believe you can sync a PocketPC smartphone with a Mac using this:

    I haven't tried it personally yet (waiting for my new iBook to arrive :)) but it looks pretty good, and reasonably priced.
