    Here's a question for slinky: Was the wifi an external card based one or an internal one?

    Lastly, if I have wifi, a 3.2 MP camera is fine. I can simply e-mail the pics to my gmail account or upload them directly to my server. It's like having an invisible 300GB SD card.
    I read that it will possibly be 64 usable, 64 nonusable and dedicated for operating.
    It was also hinted that the "WIFI" is a card, not onboard. I doubt they can cram an 802.11 card and a 3.2 mp camera that is half decent into something that isn't as clunky as an oldschool ARCHOS

    He says, "it will be more impressive than the 700w."

    I thinkg Sprint will debut this before years ends, didn't Jeff Hawkins say there would be more devices announced before "years end"?

    Yes, as others have mentioned, I'd like to hear from Slinky again either coming clean or standing by his statements (which I hope are TOTALLY TRUE, by the way)

    Well if wifi is a card, it should have been fairly obvious (a big sticking card out of the SD slot) and not just a hint. I agree that it's unlikely to be onboard, but I would have expected the rumor to state Wifi via SD card somewhere if that was in case the truth.

    Where's your response, Slinky?!?

    It's only hubris if I fail!

    The camera still gives me pause to believe, but the rest is true enough that I'd have to say this is the best of the rumors I've seen.
    Maybe RIM or Microsoft is Caesar?

    Geez..I'm all crazy over this now. I've been looking to ditch my 600 for a while now and this news and the timing are perfect. I'm not locked into a contract, have upgrade $$ to use at my carrier, cash in my pocket and a pen ready to sign a contract. Let the stars align just once.

    The stars will align -- around this configuration:

    The 700p will have (IMHO):

    EV-DO
    64mb
    1.3 megapixel camera
    BT 1.2
    Fat 32 for 4GB SD cards

    I will be happy.

    Anything else will be a plus.

    Cheers, Perry.

    A little beyond my:

    March 22, 2006 for sale

    stab in the dark.




    But I will take it.

In the past I've had to argue with Verizon about wrongful charges, the phone not working properly with the Internet and other connectivity issues, not to leave out the months of insanity where Verizon reps couldn't understand that our "pay as you go" charges could not have been because the Treo automatically connects to the Internet every night at midnight so you have to buy an unlimited data plan or else you risk this problem.

    Since I am also a decisionmaker in my company regarding mobile phones, I have a close connection with representatives on all levels of the organization. Yesterday I was at at a technology conference where Palm happened to be an exhibitor, showing off their latest to impress. Blackberry was there too. From a discussion with someone I know and have a relationship with, knowing full well that I am ready to yank our phones off out of Palm's realm, it was confirmed that the next Palm Treo will be the 800p and it will come out on March 15 for reasons he wouldn't disclose but that I could surmise. Another carrier rep whom I know confirmed the same.

    The reasoning I was told behind skipping the 700 number series altogether is severalfold --

    1) With the 700w gaining such popularity and the enthusiasm for the Palm OS and the old 650 which time has passed by, Palm felt that there needed to be more of an "upgrade" in the minds of consumers than a "later" release of another 700 model.

    2) Current features in the 800p will include 128MB RAM, a WiFi option, SD card, BT 2, EVDO of course, enhanced 320x320 screen, slimmer form factor and antenna, will use the same accessories as the 650, 3.2 MP camera.

    I was told that if I was curious, I should come down to the lobby bar and meet him and a select few other large firm representatives. You better believe I did. He was **extremely** hands off and wouldn't let us handle the phone but we did see a brief demo!!!! It IS thinner and slightly smaller than the current 650. It has these neat, illuminating ticky-tack keys which didn't seem to be a problem typing. Case is VERY slick and Palm seems to have adopted the Motorola Q type approach of a little more "sleek and cool" rather than just functional. I did NOT see any mention of "800p" anywhere on the phone but that's what we were told. He connected to a wireless WiFi connection effortlessly and also to EVDO. Saying it was fast is an understatement. I'm not sure if Blazer was improved since what he was using seemed to render the pages he showed us with not only more speed but also elegance.

    He was a real Shakespeare buff too, this guy. I'm not sure what reader he was using (built in) but he showed us "Julius Caesar" and it looked great and rendering just beautiful. Screen incredibly bright. Sharper and less awkward 5 way button and not everything crammed in like the 650. I asked him about the RAM issue and he said that this additional amount was implemented since they were able to significantly enhance battery life with this model. It had been years since the Tungsten C. Also with other Windows Media devices coming with "128" based devices the Treo 800p would have stacked up very poorly with a "64" for storage. Estimated price will definitely be under $600 which is very exciting. He wouldn't give us any more information regarding carriers but said to be aware of March 15 as a key date.

    I am SO glad that we can finally put these sightings and rumors to rest. This is VERY exciting news indeed.
    Is this Treo 800 a Palm OS Device???

    I don't know if that analyst was clueless and confused the 700w and p (I know, it was referenced in the next paragraph - stranger things have happened in the analysts circle*) or if Verizon really will have the exclusive on the P also.

    *-On at least one occassion an analyst failed to realize that Palm does more than smartphones.

    craziness.

    And that's not really news in the Forbes article, just speculation by an analyst.
