    Hi Tony,

    Kevin from Handspring here. Since you're interested in the new Treo,
    I'm posting a couple of links to recently published reviews. I'm also
    including the link to the Treo 600 car kit. I'm afraid I don't know
    when it will become available, though.

    Treo 600 was also named Best of Show at CeBit this year.

    Good luck in making your decision,
    Kevin

    Re: P900 v Treo 600

    I have owned everything under the sun in a bid to get the perfect mobile
    office, from Pocket PC, which I am now back on, to Tungsten (previous) and
    also current P800. Unless, like me, you need Outlook email folders
    synchronisation, there is no reason to get a Pocket PC.

    My P800 is the best system to handle text emails, but not much else (there
    is not much point in looking at an Word or Acrobat document on such a
    screen). The text stylus input is also the best there is. I do not take
    that many pictures, and have never used MMS. The P900 is merely better in
    all departments, including being smaller and sleeker. The Treo though
    really moves you up a whole level, combining proper PDA functions, but in a
    larger package.

    My 2 cents idea is: if you cannot wait, go for the Treo, if you can wait 10
    days, wait for the announcement of both the P900 and, I have been told, the
    new Nokia Communicator. I for one will upgrade to a P900 unless the Nokia
    is 1) spectacular 2) delivered this year, but that is only because I need a
    damn Pocket PC.

    As you are probably aware, the P900 is out and there is a range of car
    kit items on the sony ericsson website shop.
