I have had the Treo 600 for a week now and overall I am satisfied with its performance. However, here are my thoughts.

Pro's:
1. Small size-this is nice compared to older versions of PDA phones like my old Kyocera 6035.
2. MP3 is nice to have-however I haven't used it because the headset adapter is not included.
3. Keyboard is nice-takes a little practice to use, but so does graffiti.
Cons
1. Color screen is too low resolution--needs to be the clarity of aPocket PC devices. Viewing pictures on the Treo 600 is very fuzzy.
2. No voice speed dialing-I miss this from my Kyocera 6035 phone. The shortcut dialing feature is too limiting.
3. Some interfaces could be better, especially when on an active call.
My suggestions to Palm One:
1. Either eliminate the camera or make it higher quality-even using it for fun pictures is not good enough.
2. Include the headset adapter. Why make it so that you have to order the adapter before you can listen to mp3.
3. Needs a replaceable battery. Although the battery life is good, under heavy usage, it is not sufficient.
Would I buy it again? Yes, at a $300 price range. To me, it is not worth the retail price of $549.

Verified Purchase
Firstly, the deal on this is great, I got it for a mere two hundred and fifty dollars (after rebates, with 2-year contract). I ordered on Friday with free super-saver shipping, and got it tuesday! I'll focus on the features of this phone that stand out.
Sprint PCS:
The set up with Sprint PCS is very easy -- 10 minutes on the phone did it. Their Vision Package is a great deal -- you get unlimited web browsing for fifteen dollars a month. I've had Sprint PCS in NYC for many years and I've never had problems with voice clarity, and rarely any dropped calls. I don't know why people complain about Sprint PCS in NYC.
Keyboard:
The keyboard is amazingly easy to use, and
text entry is fast. Your "finger aim" doesn't need to be as accurate as you think -- when entering a letter, you can "slur" over more than one letter, and it is smart enough to pick the first key you pressed.
5-Way naviation button:
This is very useful, although be warned that some third-party
apps don't fully exploit it (like Vindigo).
Email:
I can read my office outlook email via Sprint PCS Business Connect Personal Edition -- it was a breeze to set: simply install the software on your office desktop (this sends your email to a web site, and the Treo then grabs it from there), and download the app into your palm, and you're set.
To read my Yahoo mail (via POP3, with Yahoo Mail Plus),
I use SnapperMail, because you just pay for it once (around $30
I think), and there are no monthly charges (unlike Visto MessageExpress which charges a periodic fee).
SnapperMail was also very easy to set up.
Compare with other Phone/PDAs:
I considered getting the Samsung I500, but didn't get it because
it didn't have a keyboard.

I got this phone from the Sprint PCS Store - I must add right at the begining that Sprint PCS customer service sucks really badly. So I will try not to taint my high regard for this phone with my poor regard for Sprint.
Pros:
Great usable keyboard - very easy to use (even though I though the keys would be small but after a couple of hours practice I was a typing maniac
Stylus made obsolete - In two days, I have only used the stylus once and that was to play a game - nice design for one-handed-no-stylus operation
Long Battery Life - Although I have not tested standby completely, the talk time is pretty long - not sure how long though yet
Navigation made simple - plenty of ways to get to the hundreds of features on this phone. The center navigation button is just awesome...very well thought out so that it can access practically anything on the device
Included travel charger - Nice to be able to charge when I am out of the home - My Samsung I300 had a cradle with built in charger - very difficult to carry around.
Bright Screen - Not to be confused with resolution - the screen is very bright. I have not even taken off the protective cover yet so I am in for another pleasant suprise when that thing finally peels off :)
Fast Synching - phew, it is fast with USB and OK with IR.
Lots of others but I must also address the cons
Cons:
No replaceable battery - Let me say, I hate this - not having the option to change batteries means that I have to be near a main if I run out of juice - also if the battery dies, does the unit become a $600 paper weight?

I agree with what most of the people reviewing the phone that have given 5 stars thus far. The integration of PDA and phone features are seemless, but a couple of improvements can make this phone more superior.
My gripe about the Treo 600 is (which I hope Handspring fixes in the form of a software patch or something) the display remains lite the entire time that you use the phone. I would bet that the battery life would be much longer if the display would dim or turn off after being on the phone for a certain duration. Another problem (that Handsping should considering fixing in the next model) is that the phone has a built-in internal battery. I would much rather have the option to buy replacement batteries (an external battery is available, but it increases the size a lot . . . remember the old Motorola brick phones of the mid-90's?). One last thing is a "nice to have" design change. Presently, the SD slot is on the top of the phone. It should be moved somewhere else (maybe behind a compartment) so that the SD card is not easily popped out.
Overall, the Treo 600 is great. I have had it for 2 weeks now and have not had any problems. The Samsung i500 is also a very good, portable PDA phone, but does not have as many features as the Treo 600 (e.g. 16MB vs. 24MB and no SD slot). Until Handspring fixes the issues that I described above, I would have to say that both the Treo 600 and i500 are comparable (given the pros and cons of both). If you are considering either one of the phones, ask yourself which features are more important to you.
