    1. Voda is a GSM operator
    2. There will not be a Palm OS 750 because the POS can't handle a UMTS radio
    3. Your only option for an 'upgrade' to a 650 is the Treo 680 that really has nothing new over the Treo 650 besides a different form factor. EDGE is the fastest speed you will get with a Palm OS treo.

    The 680 has over twice the internal memory of the 650, and should have better bluetooth as well. This should improve the stability of the 650 especially with 3rd party programs. So 'nothing new' is not quite accurate. Also unknown is whether the bluetooth will be substantially improved over the 650.

    Gadgetluva is correct thought that Palm OS is topped out at EDGE because it cannot handle simultaneous voice and data for UMTS. If you're like me, and a fan of the Palm OS and sticking with GSM, we are hostage to the split of Palm and Palm Source (now Access) and what that did to Palm OS development. There will be a new Palm OS (over linux) but it will be a long wait.

    It looks likely that the first devices may be as early as first quarter next year, but that's hard to say for sure.

    It ain't the OS. It's the UI. That's what's important.

    Never going to happen. At best case, they release the OS to the device manufacturers Q1 07. The manufacturers then take 6 to 9 monts to get the devices. That's later 2007.

    But personally I don't think Palm will ever use ALP. They just been too quiet about it.

    Secondly, if those screenshots are any indication, I wouldn't buy any Palm devices based on that OS. Frankly it looks fairly primitive and except for the Palm OS in emulation nothing like what I want.

    I think the discussions are still in progress but I think Palm have a backup plan anyway.

    Well they're not the from the finished article, plus I'm sure there's plenty of room for licensees to customize it for their own requirements.
