If you can fit the 505 with regular cover in your back pocket, then the 650 with regular cover must be no problem, since it is about half an inch smaller.

Do you realize you are just waiting for your 505 to get broken? Do you really want to keep on taking such a risk?

Just in case you haven't bought the expensive one from Sony. Check dealextreme.com. The might have a charger that works and mostly its cheap. I got my psp charger from there for about 2-3 bucks.

Well, your 505 might feel depressed the first time you press on her screen to select a book, then remember that she just doesn't respond the same way the Touch edition does....



(I actually just tried that little maneouver on my 300 after getting used to the 650 touch screen...and it took a couple of blinks before I remembered the 300 isn't a touch screen!)

I'm ordering the 650 from abt.com today. I already had the Gomadic charger for my 505 and went to Gomadic.com and ordered just the tip for the new 650. It was $5.95 plus $4.10 shipping so if you already have the Gomadic charger that's a cheaper way to go. Amazon.com has the Gomadic charger for the 650 including tip for $19.95 plus shipping so it's still better than Sony's price.
