    Give suggestions on what features you want new Treo phone to have. Palm reads this site.

    I will start off. My suggestions are:
    #1 First keep all mutimedia applications the 700p has now like TV when on sprint network.
    #2 Get big screen like Palm-TX with a 320 x 480 screen with a small pull out keyboard.
    #3 A Unlockd model.
    #4 Wifi.

    I will stop there and let other members take over...
    I've called Palm. You can too to tell engineers what we demand!
    What other suggestions?..

    1: WiFi
    2: My name as an easter egg
    3: "Official" ROM creating tool
    No problem should ever be solved twice.

    Verizon Treo650 W/Custom ROM

    I would say
    make the phone app like the GSM Centro's.
    don't put Sprint's Email program on there, just put Versa Mail on it
    more colors like how they did the centro but release them all at the same damn time.

    Ummm...

    1. No later than <strike>January</strike> July.
    2. All features actually working out of the box, ahem, BT
    3. Better than a 1 in 5 chance of being able to be updated, if required.

    How about full-featured Desktop software that actually works with Vista?
    The Treo 600 may be "Buck Rogers," but Handspring Customer Service is strictly "Moe, Larry, and Curly"!!!

    Haha, i assumed you guys meant next palm 800p with the old palm OS. Myself, i don't want to see them come out with anything else with that on it. The centro should be it.

    If you're talking about the new palm OS, then i'm thinking it will be iphone like. A traditional treo form factor will have to compete with its 800w. It's just redundant. I think a new palm OS will be aimed at consumers, not business.

    So basically i want an iphone (not crippled as it is now) that marries the treo functions we know and love.

    1. Wide screen high resolution with on screen keyboard.
    2. Wifi (they'll include this or take a beating)
    3. rev. a speed or whatever standard will be then
    4. compatibility with palm apps as well as new ones. This is huge. Slingbox, new music app, video, games, etc.
    5. browser & full email
    6. navigater button at bottom or least a scroll wheel on side to cut down on the finger dragging
    7. gps
    8. storage
    9. sync software
    10. Something palm unique

    I'm with Greenhex.

    definitely not a slider or onscreen keyboard.

    Can you please bring back a graffiti screen! the thumb board is uncomfortable and slow for monkey handed men. Not to mention I'm sick of being looked at like I'm text messaging in a meeting. And no, graffitianywhere.prc is not the same. other than that the machine is perfect, dont make it any smaller. I kinda sets it apart as a man phone as apposed to the tiny teeny booper bedazzeled phones that are floating around

    I'm almost with you, except for the form factor.
    I think they pretty much got it right with the Treo 270/300, aside from the flimsy wire to the speaker in the flipcover, and the external antenna.

    The form factor has to stay...it's what sets the Treo apart and above the rest. No other PDA is as easy to use one-handed.

    The physical keyboard needs to stay...none of that on screen, you're-screwed-when-it-fails-because-there's-no-backup crap.

    It should have both GPS and WiFi, along with plenty of memory.

    A bigger screen would be nice, but if it comes at the expense of a bigger device or a smaller keyboard, or even a loss of the form factor, it's not necessary. The device is the perfect size, although it could be a bit thinner and could lose the antenna (on my 700wx anyway).

    Also, how about offering it in black for every network, and not just Verizon?

    Working BT is a must, so I don't have to figure out why everybody else is complaining when my BT works just fine.

    Multi-tasking on the PalmOS would be nice, but as long as there is a Windows version, I'm happy.
    a740 --> a900 --> Katana --> a900 --> a900m --> M1 --> a900m --> PPC6700 --> a900m--> 8400 --> a900m --> Treo 700wx --> Treo 800w

    Here a two more features a must.
    -Added to lead post-

    #5: Have a jack for direct media / Video & Audio input to device.
    #6: Give 800p/w real computer attachment capabilities.

    Note: A "man" version good. (We already got Centro) Big screen. Palm TX size at least! Come up with a keyboard on back or something! No flip that will wear out.

    It set the treo apart years ago. That's come and past. People want widescreen. They want a real browser. The traditional treo exists in the form of the 800w. I think they need to hit the masses with this not business users.

    If they introduce another traditional treo/centro looking device with simply a new OS, it will elicit a big yawn from me. May as well get a 800w then if that's what you want or stick with the centro.

    800p??

    Are you thinking the Palm/Linux OS or another FrankenGarnet offering?
