The user manual for the upcoming Palm Treo 800w was posted to the Sprint site, providing details of the new device ahead of its launch. The hardware appears to be similar to the existing line of Treos with a few small changes, including a button on the top that toggles on/off the Wi-Fi radio. The 800w runs Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional (for touch screens) and can access Sprint's EVDO Rev. A high-speed network. It has a slot for microSDHC cards, though what capacity it will support was not made clear. It is the first Treo to have 802.11b/g Wi-Fi and GPS, supporting turn-by-turn directions, on board. It also packs in Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and stereo Bluetooth. The display has been improved to 320 x 320 pixels, which matches the resolution on Palm OS-based Treos for the first time. It has a 2 megapixel camera that can also capture video, though it does not have autofocus. It comes with Microsoft Mobile software, including Mobile Office, and the ability to edit Word and Excel documents. The Treo 800w will support Direct Push email, tethering, and Sprint TV.

Is 8gb
Also, the phone looks much more thin than the 700 and 755, looks about as thick as a q9. Think they finally switched to Micro USB too.

Verizon version

Will Sprint have a long exclusive period or will Verizon also be selling these phones as well?
3 months is the initial report I heard

Anyone know if GPS will work as in like, a GPS unit lime a Garmin or TomTom?

Just curious if any knows or has an idea about whether or not this will have GPS in the same sense/function as a Garmin or TomTom...?

this device will use AGPS, this service uses data connections and cell towers to triangulate the devices location, it also uses satellite when the connection is best, the same type of GPS that was developed for the Instinct.
