look at the treo650 - externally accessible SD card and sim card - you
can even get dual sim holders to easily switch between providers.  If
you are not running an OS from the SD (many dont) its great being able
to put the SD card in a laptop for data transfer - the FR is soooo
slooowwwwww :)

The sim/sd card holder on the FR is so lacking in usability considering
what else is in the marketplace - but then again, they designed it
without a stylus holder ...

A case of 20-20 hindsight perhaps?
