I've been through this cycle numerous times over the years, and I've decided that I must
have a PDA/phone, no matter what. I've got two very good reasons: a) address book management/sync is a pain
on a "dumb phone", and b) applications like texting, email, and Internet access are important to me, and it's a lot more convenient to do these on a connected device than over a BT setup.
The Treo 700w, RAM aside, is a very good device for this, as it's a top-notch phone and a decent PDA. I'm more than willing to give up some of the high-end PDA features for this compromise. I'm looking forward to the 750, which solves most of my issues with the 700w. I will note that the last time I deconverged, I got fed up with my full-screen Pocket PC Phone, as it made for a lousy phone experience -- especially when dialing while walking down the street.
Now, that said, I don't use my Treo for music, as I find that experience subpar. I also happen to carry an iPod nano for music; does that make me "semi-converged"?
Since the nano is so small, I find it an unobtrusive addition to my pants pockets.
