I currently have the i730 and like it a lot.  It's only problems are that
1. You can not run both WiFi and CDMA radios at the same time.  So when the
WiFi is on the phone turns off and vise/versa
2. The built in Voice Signal sucks.

I had the VX6600 Camera and the unit was unstable.  I would have to reset
about 3 - 5 times a day.

The only thing I know about the Blackberry is that they are totally
proprietary in design and os.

Lots of good info can be found at http://pdaphonehome.com

Looking at the possibility of getting a PDA phone.    Verizon (my carrier)  
has the BlackBerry 7250, the Audiovox XV6600, the Palm Treo 650, and Samsung


The Palm Treo 650 is out.  It has a camera, and I cannot have a camera @

That leaves the other 3.   The Audiovox and Samsung both run Windows.  I
know what the blackberry runs.

Does anyone have any expereience making these work with Linux?
