Honestly I have never heard of KeyToss before until Josep pointed out the Version 2 Beta to me. When I checked it out I was quite impressed. It is essentially a mobile portal for your smartphone that gives you quite a bit of functionality tailored to your preferences. Kind of like iGoogle for your Berry even though KeyToss is targeted towards Treo users. Check it out at m.keytoss.com.
