    Do you have any manufacturing experience?

    Im not saying your wrong but there are plenty of cases were companies have done similar things.

    Im trying to decipher if you are speculating or if you really have experience. Do you have manufacturing/purchasing experience?

    Thanks

    They can predict the future, and because of their wants and desire, they think will influence Palm. No one through Palm, would throw away Palm Os and use Windows Mobile "it biggest enemy".

    Like I said there is a big difference between a pda user who is tech savory, and knowledgable about spec, and a smartphone buyer who does't know as much.

    Since the 600 palm has been entering the market of smartphones, not pda/cell phone. The smartphone market is a lot bigger then the pda market. And know smartphone are becoming a part of the standard "high end" cell market.

    It wouldn't been a big surprise to see a 240x240 or even 160x160 treo 700p. The average smartphone user would know any better to really tell the difference.

    Honestly on a 2 1/2 by 3 inch it reall doesn't matter a huge deal.

    The ppc6700 screen is 240x240, but looks better then the 650's 320x320, but it is almost 4x2. Hell I would want 1024x768 resolution on a 2x2 screen.

    Get a life.

    I see a huge difference in my 650 screen and that of my friend's 700w. I beamed him a picture and we looked at the two, side by side. He was pretty pissed that he got such an inferior screen on what was supposed to be the "latest and greatest." What would shock me is anybody buying a new Treo with a lower res. screen. I sure wouldn't without some compelling features that I simply had to have. Sheesh, not even built-in WiFi would get me to "downgrade" like that.

    It wouldn't be a huge surprise, it would earth shattering. Palm has stated that they are making the 700P Treo this year to offer something to their loyal user base until they can do Palm/Linux. The 320x320 screen is one of the 650's huge selling points. Go backwards on that?

    We would have 1,000 posts in one hour on that one.

    The 700P will be 320x320.

    BTW -- I have compared my 650 screen to the ppc6700 -- I respectfully differ on which one looks better.

    Cheers, Perry.

    I have a very limited experience in manufacturing (building my own PCs and rebuilding Treo's). I know some computer company's will underclock CPUs if stock is low and other situations like this. But CPUs are scalable (they are easily under clocked) making a 320x320 screen display a 240x240 screen image will not be very clear, the text would look pixel-ated (sp?)

    This thread is painful. 320x320...
    Every pixel a picasso

    Yes, it's been confirmed 240x240. I'm too lazy to look up a link. Saw it in person tho, and it is really not bad. Since the screens are more compact than a full size PDA, the pixels are more compact and less jaggies are evident.

    The quality of the LCD itself on the 700w seemed really nice too. Pixels are very important, but they are not the only factor to quality.

    Pixels are only one part of the equation. For instance, when the 600 came out with a 160x160, people where aghast, but the product was still really good. Only when the 650 came out did I personally realize how terrible the original screen resolution was.

    I was thinking you had good points and were somewhat well informed until this post. I can now honestly say, you have no clue. The PPC-6700 screen is 240x320. It is HIDEOUS in comparison to the Treo 650. The 650 has better color definition and is quite a bit more spacious in pixel set. I have had dozens of people compare the two side by side. The Treo's screen is clearly superior. Next, user can sure as hell tell the difference between 160x160 and 320x320. Hell 160x160 is horrid. I dont miss the Treo 600's screen one bit. Also XGA is stupid on this kind of size, yeah it may be cool, but get real. Ideally we could get a VGA 3x4 or larger screen. That would be nice.

    Clarence, I don't know where you are getting your survey information from but 160x160 is definitely not acceptable, even to "the average smartphone user". Overall, my Treo 600 can do more than many "regular" smartphones, but its screen resolution doesn't compare to those on some of the $50 smartphones that carriers give away with new service. Remember that many of these "average smartphone users" have their phones for their 1.3+ MP cameras, so they need decent screen resolution.

    240x240 is a theoretical possibility, but 160x160 will definitely not happen (even most Treo 600 users wouldn't put up with that nonsense - at least this one won't). 160x160 shouldn't be in any discussion anymore.

    You mean my 600's 160x160 is bad? ....ah, THAT's why my wife's Tungsten E2 looks so much better than my Treo!

    160x160 would never happen. Not after having a 320x320 out there. Maybe on a Treo 350 or something like that (think low-end), but not on the treo 650 or above
