shopping for phones

I am upgrading my phone. Maybe.

As many gentle readers who have mocked me realize. I have a Treo 300. I like my phone. It looks pretty dorky, but I like it. It is a phone. It is a PDA. And it has a keyboard. That is why I got it. Also, it fits in my purse in a special little pocket made just for my phone. (The purse, if you're interested, was ten dollars at Mervyn's).

Mike got a bonus, so I have a little money to spend. I have just spent A LOT of that money on books (more on that later), but I have a little left over, so I'd like to upgrade my phone. As I may have mentioned, I want a phone, a PDA, and a keyboard.

There seem to be only two choices: the Treo 600 (beautiful and teeny and Palm) or the Hitachi g1000 (huge and monstrous and Pocket PC, which means it's compatible with stuff). I, Jane Q. User, am forced to make choices.

So, readers of the technical persuasion, advise. What should I do? Let me know. And, by the way, wanting our friends to make money should not, technically speaking, be a factor in which products we buy.

I am at your disposal.

Teeny is important to me in personal electronics. Beauty is nice, but teeny and functional is important-est. If it's not small, I won't carry it and won't use it. I like the Treo 600 - especially since you love your 300 already.

I am inherently suspicious of pocketPCs.

I present to you cnet's review of the Hitachi:

And their review of the Treo:

I've been very happy with my PocketPC. But, of course, it's not a phone.
