Videos and screen captures of a Palm Treo running Windows Mobile 5 have surfaced today. According to the post the device is a Treo 670 with EV-DO, Bluetooth and a 1.3 Megapixel camera. Although the specs are not confirmed, there have been plenty of consistent rumors regarding a new Treo called the 670. The design of the phone in the video is similar enough to the previous Treos that it is likely at least a prototype for a new model. It is also likely this prototype is actually running Windows Mobile 5, however that does not mean that the production model will as well. There could be additional prototypes running the Palm or even other OSes.

WTF?

A palm device with Windows software?

Its like a hot chick that has beans and franks.


my brain hurts
Right before I checked the "discuss" page, your subject line was my thoughts exactly!! WTF?!?! šŸ˜

Yeah this doesnt make sense at all. I think this is just a hack and someone just figured out how to put Windows on it. It doesnt make sense for Palm to put Windows on the Treo. Its like selling a Mac Mini with Windows XP on it.

The reason is simple:

Iā€™m not impressed

more verizon junk. Widows mobile 5 omg please šŸ™„

Seriously, I agree! I guess the EV-DO is nice, but @ cingular, we already have the EDGE 650, and this one only adds a megapixel camera. The 600 & 650 both could be better phones, I mean for the amount people pay for these, they really aren't very go...

Personally, I think this is will be the ultimate phone out there. Although I am going to pickup the i730 tomorrow, Treo running a more capable OS will beat any device out there. I know tons of people who's only complaint against Treos is the backwar...

Probably to replace i600/i645

The i645 from samsung was slated to replace the i600 as vzw's "lower" tier windows mobile device, but recently found out that the i645 has been scrapped, supposedly because it would not be able to run 2005. I'm assuming this will be its replacement due to the overwhelming success of the other treos w/ vzw...
Both the i600/i645 are smartphones (i.e. no keyboard but with Microsoft OS, like the smt5600, mpx 220, etc).

This would be considered a PDA phone like the i730, t650, etc. šŸ™‚
