I just bought a holster for the 650, which obviously means that the 700p is coming out in April. I also bought several games to keep me occupied while travelling. I swear, its an absolute inevitiability.

    Honestly, I could pass on the 700p if it weren't for the faster network. To me, it makes the web worth browsing with the faster network. That alone will be the reason I buy the 700p.
    It's not the faster web browsing for me -- it's the ability for a call to interrupt a data connection so no calls are missed. Fast fast fast data connection _will_ be fun tho.

    IT WILL NOT, EMPHASIS ON THE NOT BE A 700W TO BE RELEASED BY SPRINT in late late May/June. It WILL be the the 700P, which has passed into it's final phase of testing on Sprint.

    Yes, I did say the "J" word, but the "M" word is still in the mix.


    Cheers, Perry.

    ok Perry... The last couple days you have thrown out a lot of hints that you know something we don't.... it is time to pull the "pink" carpet out from under you.... TELL US where your getting the rumors. Yes I said rumors... you should know by now that stating short comments like you just did does not give us hope... it discourages us that you have actually gone crazy! You need to start sharing details.

    Another lurker here, Perry, surfacing to help you out. I just bought HanDBase and Adarian Money for my trusty Treo 600 (which is doing great- I'm sure you want to know). I, myself, am hanging on for the unlocked GSM version. Thanks for keeping the faith. Be happy to see you on the unlocked GSM camp!

    I think it's called
    DENIAL
    cobalt blue 700w (GSM) on it's way... totally opposite to what Perry "thinks" he wants.

    Admittely, the Treo cameras are pretty awful. I just finished Editing a story that will go up on TC's front page on Monday next by Jay Gross. Jay has been a professional photographer (as well as a writer, magazine publisher and Editor for almost forty years).. wait until you see his article and what can be done with post-processing Treo camera pictures. You won't believe it. I couldn't believe it.

    It might just be the best article ever written about turning the umm.. well.. perhaps crap isn't the best word.. let's say the less-than-quality pictures that Treo cameras make into pictures that are truly nice to look at and can even be used for semi-professional needs. Well okay, maybe crap is the right word for the Treos' cameras.

    So stay tuned. Jay is a freakin' genius when it comes to photography and image processing. His site is www.fotoartista.com where you can see a lot of his work and portfolios and his bio. I've known him for over twenty years.

    But I agree, Treos need far better cameras (and a LOT more memory).. if they're going to be taken even remotely seriously as photographic tools. The ball is in Palm's hands. Let's see if they run with it.

    Do NOT send email to harv at treocentral dot com - it will never reach me.. forwarding from that address to my real address was hijacked in early 2008, and I can't fix it.. send me a private message instead or email me directly at my RR address..

    I wasn't speaking to the validity of any of his points I was in fact saying I do not believe anything coming from a blog unless it has been confirmed by a responsible journalistic source. Blogging and Podcasting wil implode if they continue the irresponsible downhill slide they are on. That was my point

    Has enyone found a database referencing the 700P on any speed test results? If they are in fact testing them someone has had to go out on a limb and try to see how fast it is going. This would be pretty solid proof...

    Hi treosolomom!

    I totally understand. I offer no proof. I offer no clue as to where it comes from. If I were a one month noobie, I would be blasted and flamed into orbit. I have been chosen for this role without my asking. I will play it out.

    It could be a PPR delusion,
    I could be Slinky 2, or
    I could just be me.

    I can offer you nothing more, than I understand your doubt. As I have said before, I would not hang myself out to dry like this unless I was 100% sure that I was not being led down the primrose path.

    This Silly Season is over, I have moved on to the the next Silly Season (Palm/Linux Treo XXXP).

    Cheers, Perry.

    As I said, there are a bunch of well-known journalistic blogs that are responsible and back up their reporting with facts and investigation. That's getting off the point. The contribution to the thread was a guy who threw out comments on the future of Palm from his context -- that is, as COO within PalmSource.

    Even if you treat his writing as pure opinion (your choice, and certainly within reason), it's no reason to flame the inclusion of such material. We have people posting, "Hey I talked to some poor guy at the Sprint store!" material, fer crying out loud. This blogger appears to have insight that the rest of us don't. Don't throw cold water on it just b/c you don't like the medium. Ok, rant off, but JEEZ! Your point was off topic, so let's move on.

    I think that Palm is definitely angling for leverage on Access by keeping mum and chasing people who get their hands on valid info. If the 700P is dominantly successful, they will have more leverage on ALP than if it doesn't capture more of the market than just 600/650 upgrades. They want to control this info as much as possible to improve their bargaining position, I bet. That said, bring out the 700P Palm!

    I "upgraded" from a ux-50 to a Treo 600, but quickly went to a T3 and Sony Ericson phone. 160x160 does not cut it, the Treo 650's screen is perfect. I used the 700w, the screen isn't that bad for 240x240, when I held my 650 up against it I felt bad for the 700w users, oh well. Bring on the 700p already!@!!

    Please Perry, don't go there. That Silly Season will still be going when your little girl is GRADUATING from high school. Don't put yourself through all of that. Repent, and foresake any Treos beyond 700P (and I SURE HOPE YOU GET ONE OF THOSE SOME DAY SOON).

    Otherwise, you'll develop more personalties than Sybil.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    Perry is having another conversation right now, what is your question again?
    (Never liked that Perry guy anyway, always too polite.)

    Thanks Millin!

    I feel like the Pied Piper of Hamelin, but that's a bad analogy.

    Cheers, Perry.

    Cool! I'm starting to think that one day, maybe, I could possibly believe that there might conceivably, perchance, be plans to one day release something closely resembling that of a new Palm Treo phone - call me crazy.
