Hmm... If I didn't have such a major mental block against cell phones (how "connected" does one person need to be, sitting in their car? Or a restaurant? Or a theater? Hrmph!), I'd really want a Treo.
Of course, I haven't the foggiest idea about the different cell phone protocols, networks, etc., so I wouldn't even know which one to buy...

You made me do this!!! Take a look at "Mobile computing as everyday life" [ zdnet.com] (It's a car thing) This was great when it were released. I also suggest that you watch the second part of John Chambers speach. mivox msg:932957 8:31 pm on Mar 26, 2002 (gmt 0)

I was hoping it was a really super-old article about the first "car phones" back when they were gigantic things with over-the-shoulder battery bags, and were called car phones because they were too darn heavy to be called "portable."
