My treo 600 was dying and I was in the market for a new phone/pda. I had very specific requirements, so I wrote my own comparison chart, hopefully this will help others out there.
In the end I got a treo 680 and have been very happy.
UPDATE: I recently upgraded to OSX 10.5 Leopard and sync stopped working!! Now I’m forced to using The Missing Sync*
UPDATE:6th of Nisan, 5769 I’m now starting to hate my t680, it doesn’t sync any more, and the battery only lasts 1/2 a day (If I’m lucky), and sometimes it can’t connect to the network for hours ( not a problem with the network, I tested on other phones, and switched sim cards)
UPDATE:4th of Iyyar, 5769: Looking into getting a Nokia E71 now.

*I would not recommend the missing sync, it is not a finished product and it is way over priced. There is really nothing that you can’t do with out it.
**The same PiLoc hebrew works for the 600 and 650, but you need a new version for the 680
