However I understand the difficulities of this. Palm would have to design a Treo with two different telephony stacks which would be tricky...but you can dream right?
    The only reason I'd want Wi-Fi on an EVDO device is for use during international travel.

    However, I thought CDMA and GSM were on a collision course five or so years down the road... That would make this a moot point (five or so years down the road)

    I kinda want XM Radio on my next handheld. And a nice couple of gig storage.

    And, just because I can't help myself, I want WiFi because I want to jump on my home and work networks..which I will not be able to do via connecting via EVDO. I could envision never using the data plan...which is why I have not pulled the trigger on buying a new device just yet.

    I don't think I could go without a data plan, but WiFi access sure lightens the load at work and the house (not to mention the numerous WiFi enabled hotels.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    Good point!

    Let's get a hard drive in there too - maybe a tiny, perpendicular one.

    ditto to everyone elses comments with one addition a factory in box belt clip. similar to the one procided with blackberries. I hate having to get a third party holster everytime I get a new treo.

    FYI: Samsung showed their new 640 x 480 resolution 1.98-inch LCD panel.

    Here is a link at engadget about it:

    This would help with keeping the size of the SuperTreo reasonable.

    What about a flipper with HVGA? I'll even take FrankyG on it.

    A little more at http://www.samsung.com/PressCenter/P...607_0000261768 BTW.

    Though it is nice, it doesn't seem to be touch sensitive - or can that be added afterwards?

    Here's my mock-up.

    http://surur.sytes.net/mock2.jpg

    It gives you a rectangular VGA screen, exposed keyboard, UMTS/HSDPA, wifi, and GPS and plenty of programmable keys. Of course it will have 128 MB of real ram and 4 GB of flash storage for maps and media. It will of course have a reasonably good 2 megapixel camera with macro mode with OCR for business cards and a front-facing VGA camera for video conferencing.

    Before people go on about the paddle-like design again, at 122 mm its 10 mm shorter than the Treo 700 with antenna, and only 10mm longer than the treo minus antenna (God, is the Treo antenna really nearly an inch long?) and look at all it given in return. At 20mm its also 3 mm thinner than the Treo 700 series.

    1. 25% thinner, narrower, and lighter than the 700p.
    ...

    That's a tall order ...

    I'd settle for a BT that works with a headset...
    ... while they're at it, add a dedicated side button-launched voice recorder.

    Please?

    That's what am talking about right there! I would die for a flip Treo.

    My better Treo wouldn't even really be a new Treo, it would just be a slightly upgraded 700p.

    1. WiFi
    2. BT 2.0 (and it would actually work well) with voice dialing support and A2DP
    3. Green button would replace phone button
    4. 2 Megapixel camera with flash and good picture quality
    5. Standard mini USB connector
    6. Some kind of new, preferably open source OS (ALP or whatever new WM is out)

    BellSouth became Cingular, left for ATT, who became Cingular, who became ATT. Is that right?

    How about adding voice recognition software so you can dictate word docs and email?

    I'm going in the exact opposite direction. The more I think about it the more I realize a device that is a little bigger would be so much more useful as a cell phone - PDA - notebook PC replacement. We just need a slightly bigger keyboard & screen at higher resolution.

    That would be the best!!! Its unreal that the market has been screaming for a clamshell pda phone and nothing has come out. Years ago we had the Kyocera 7135 (slow processor low resolution), the samsung I-500 (no external memory). A few clamshells have come out over seas and users are getting by with spotty GSM coverage in the US picking up 1 band.

    All us clamshell pda lovers have been hanging on while non-PDA clamshell phones fly off the shelves 3X faster than bar phones.......

    Why is no one filling this niche?
