So now all of the "biggies" are carrying the Treo 600 other than Nextel and Alltel, right? With this extended rollout out of the way, let's start really hoping that the Treo Ace/610 appears soonish.

On a related note, anyone here have a Verizon Moto V710 and a BT-enabled Palm? A how-to guide might be nice for PIC. Anyone want to contribute some info?

T-mobile coverage in Chattanooga about as good as UHF TV channels. I had to walk away from them, but I absolutely loved their plans. GPRS data at no extra, just minutes was awesome 4 my T3 + S/E T610. But when you get coverage 40-50% of the area, not at your home and only 50% at the T-mobile store, you gotta move on. Too bad. Hope the other cities are better.

I have to admit, the Verizon V710 + T3 combo, if you can live with the power drain on both devices, is quite sweet. I am awaiting the big firmware update for the 710 and the release of the extended battery for it. That should tide me over until the T4 is out...hopefully! You still cannot beat Verizon coverage, especially when heading off the interstate in rural areas!

Good thing T-Mobile is now getting their hands dirty on some Palm-Powered seriousness--let's hope that T-Mobile stores will attract more Palm-Powered business using souls from this point on.

Intel PXA27X, Motorola's ARM Processor, or Texas Instruments OMAP? Pick one Palm Enthusiasts, the choice should be yours. When handheld makers make you choose the ARM Processor, you win.

Best Thing About This Is...

The best thing about this move is being able to go immediately down to my T-Mobile store and get a replacement on the spot rather than waiting 6 weeks like I did last time. Good move T-Mobile.
