Palm today announced the much-rumored Treo 700p, a new CDMA Treo with Palm OS. The 700p is based on the same hardware as the 700w, including EV-DO high-speed data, a 1.3 megapixel camera, and Bluetooth. The key differences are Palm OS 5.4.9 instead of Windows Mobile, and a sharper 320 x 320 display like the Treo 650. The 700p also supports built-in streaming video, laptop tethering via Bluetooth or USB, support for Outlook, Yahoo!, AOL, and GMail email accounts, built-in support for Word, Excel, PowerPoint, and PDF files, and Mac compatibility. The 700p will be launched with both Sprint and Verizon Wireless in coming months.

My son had a 700w for about a week or two and then sold it. Why?
1) When the unit was in data mode, incoming phone calls went right to voice mail. This was totally unacceptable for us, calls should have priority.
2) Email handling, especially if you have more than 1 account, was clumsy, inefficient and cumbersome.
I hope that Treo/Palm/VZW address these concerns. As someone who carriers a Blackberry (tMobile) and a Razr (VZW) I would LOVE to just have ONE device!
The Palm Operating System has to be one of the MOST stable platforms out there. And if it does crash, on that rare occasion, all you have to do is hotsync it and...
GSM gettin' no love...
Treo 700p just a Treo 650 with EVDO
No WiFi - What, no data for free? What was I thinking?
With so few changes, the only reason I can think for a new model name is to create new service plan bundles that work with one model but not the other. Whose idea was it that I'm web surfing or reading email on my V710 or Razr I can do it for $10/monthw extra, but if I want to use a 650 or 700p the same way it costs $50/month extra?
Also, there are significant differences.
2. 1.3MP camera
3. Bundled software compatibility (excel, pdf...)
4. More memory
5. On Sprint... option to get l...
Saving the better screen for Palm OS...
Wonder how long it will take for the higher resolution to make it to the Windows Mobile phone... Treo 750w anyone?
This is funny
I waited for a long time to install my 650 software on my computer. I just did it last night, and look what I see. The new Palm coming. I will keep a close watch on this device. Why no WIFI???
Why no WIFI???
so you have to pay extra to connect to a data network.
This makes me happy...
