    Wow, lighten up. It's a crappy WM wanna-be-smart phone.

    Not everyone cares about this as deeply as you appear to.

    What's length of membership/number of posts got to do with whether someone knows what they are talking about or not

    Has it ever occurred to you that people might disagree with you because they know more about a subject than you do? Maybe you should defer to people that have been around longer, and likely know what they are talking about.

    When did I ask for extraordinary proof? When there's so many discrepancies out there, it's hard not to doubt. I have not attacked anyone. I simply enjoy debate, and am a curious, non-political person. If anyone is under the impression that I have attacked them then I apologize, and hope you can forgive me. Such was not my intention. But comparing me to Slinky...c'mon, that just isn't fair.

    That is also on a NTK basis. And I imagine "people like you" don't need to know...

    Well, Palm says it's 1824, but since Surur only has 455, it's pretty obvious that you really only need more than 450. Blame Palm for clouding the issue.

    OK, I understand. So it's on a NTK basis then? Hahaha

    Damn, so with my post count only in the forties I must barely know how to turn it on What number of posts do I need to get to before I can start using third party applications

    ROM is an old word. For the purposed of this discussion ROM=NVRAM. NVRAM is used for storage in both PalmOS Garnet and WM5. Execution takes place in the Dynamic heap in POS and Program Memory in WM (both normal SDRAM, like your desktop).

    The Treo 650 has 32MB NVRAM (23MB available) and 32MB SDRAM. The NVRAM is used for storage, and the SDRAM is used for transient storage (the DBCACHE) and Execution (Dynamic heap).

    The Treo 700w has 128MB NVRAM (60MB available) and 32MB SDRAM. The NVRAM is again used for storage, and the SDRAM for execution (like the ram on your desktop).

    The problem people have with the Treo 700w is that while it has a 32MB SDRAM chip, all its contemporaries have 64MB SDRAM. As you may know from your desktop machine, it doesnt matter how much storage you have if you have too little ram. The shortage of ram is causing people to have to soft-reset their devices to reclaim memory. Thats not really desirable.

    I hope that clears it up any confusion..

    The future treos are as good as dead. our 650's will be classics. unless palm acquires a good, rich partner.

    SE,
    Another thing motivating the flippant and tongue in cheek responses to your questioning is that the topic has already been done to death in other threads.

    Ok, that's what I assumed they meant.

    The Treo 700w has 128MB NVRAM (60MB available)...
    So the base WM system takes 68Mb compared to 9Mb for PalmOS

    I hope that clears it up any confusion..
    Yes thanks

    Ah, I see. Thanks for the links John. Next time, before I ask a question I'll make sure to do an extensive search as not to garner any flippant and tongue-in-cheek responses from the resident gurus.

    That's one of the things that was confusing me too, but I don't want to have any more flippant or tongue-in-cheek responses aimed at me, so I'll just shut the hell up

    I'd have to ask which cheek? Or do you really mean you want her to stick HER tongue in your cheek? The possibilities, though endless, are fun to ponder...

    Thanks for the info. I don't know how there could've ever been any confusion!

So you mean to tell me that out of 128 megs total internal memory, almost a hundred of that is necessary for WM?

    ...

    One more point in the favor of POS...
    Yes

    Yes (if it could just multi-task and handle WiFi at same time).
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.
