The Clie 650 is almost identical to the 615, with the exception of built-in MP3/ATRAC audio playing ability, faster processor and the inclusion of a 32MB memory stick (a great idea). Here s what we know on the specs:

32MB Memory Stick included
USB (cradle), Infrared
Reflective TFT color display with front lights
320 x 320 pixels, supports 16 bit 65,536 colors
