    treocentral seems to be very cautious about rumors on the front page.

    it amazes me that the pics and videos are still up. i'm sure on moder the cease and disist order will be delivered to the web sites hosting it, so get the pics and videos while you can.

    btw, can this be viral advertising by PALM? just trying to get a temperature on what the geeks might think?

    Could be circumstantial viral advertising. They might be looking at all this just cracking up and had nothing to do with it .

    Not to stay on topic...but if Palm does come out with a WM5 device, and they skimp on RAM and down the screen res, I think it will be suicide for them. Like the MS os or not, that arena is or is going to be very crowded. They better think this one through....

    Has anyone figured out why the viewable area on the Treo 670 is smaller than that on our Treo 650?

    A couple of things that just don't seem right about this Treo 670. Below are my thoughts:

    - The video seems real enough. I doubt it is a photoshop job.
    - I am guessing that the ones for sale may be engineering samples, very much like those Motorola MPXs that were for sale a while back.
    - I don't recall anyone selling Palm OS based Treos before they were officially announced. I am surprised that Palm will allows the sale of MW Treos before they are made public. This simply makes no sense whatsoever.
    - Why Verizon first? It is probably because Palmsource didn't have a EVDO stack ready for Garnet and Palm decided to go with MW to make a EVDO smartphone for Verizon.

    Bottom line, Palm probably did develop MW smartphones, but I am not so sure that we will see a wide-release of these phones, if ever. Palm probably also used these models as bargain chips to get better terms on its contract extension with Palmsource.

    Just my 2 cents, and take it for whatever it is worth.

    I want to see screen taps, or at least some button pushing when those menus pop up.

    My guess...if this was an engineering sample they may not have specifically manufactured an LCD for it, but rather went with an already available LCD somewhere. But then, I could be dead wrong on this of course. Looks like it has 240x240 resolution though, that stinks. No way to tell exactly, but it doesn't look quite as crisp as the 320x320 resolution of the T650.

    I went to howard forum just to find out what is this all fuss about and then laughed for minutes.
    I can give this much to roc a fella, by releasing video he even convinced many big palm OS supporters that WM5 is coming in next treo. But....

    I was taken back, as others, that there were no specs at all. He was so much busy making video and pictures to convince others that he didnt pay attention. Still he is not sure if his beta treo has wifi or not (in his own words in a post, "I am not sure about wifi). How sure you can be when device is in your own hands?

    Also he didnt verified or denied that this device has bluetooth version 1.2 or not. I mean if you got the device why wont you put all specs. And all people associated with treo, would take pictures of functional treo (meaning; they would enable or disable wifi or bluetooth, or they would dial a phone number or would go to menu and do other stuff-- just to convince other treo lovers). Next time try hard to make your story correct next time.

    Even though I have nothing against roc (with respect) and I would easily buy his story about WM5 since he mentioned that there is another version of treo based on cobalt in testing but; I am still claiming that his whole story about new treo to be based on WM5 is completely wrong.

    Have faith, next treo is Palm based.... write it down somewhere. I still would love roc hanging on when REAL treo is released from Sprint.

    Sorry Roc.

    What I'd like "roc" to explain is why he's not under a pile of lawsuits and none of his material has been pulled, if the device is real?

    Last time this happend and it was a real leak the legal hounds killed all signs of it! The only place any record could be found after a couple days was in Google cache and yup they even got that cleaned too!

    Well if Roc was not the one that had the phone released to him, then HE isnt violating anything (although the guy who let him photo it probably is) with the ACE situation the pressure was not just legal, they were going to pull advertising off of TC and other places that kept the story up.

    Oh, and as far as "protecting" his source in the later photos, the guy needs to get some tape, not a magic marker you can see through, lol. Check out the Howard Forums and you can read the HD677 right under the black magic marker! (of course the old photos with no maker are still out there)


    Again, as I have said in the various merged threads, this MAY not be a big deal as the phone itself says DEVELOPMENT (DVT) SAMPLE. Palm showed everybody lots of development samples on slides at the rodadshows and in the webinar, one of which, as I recall, looked a lot like this one. This could be the next Treo, or it could be a few-of-a-kind development model that will never see the stores.

    Y'know, this must be saying something good about the 650... for the first time in living memory, I actually don't have the upgrade bug. I can't really think of a feature I'm looking for in an upgraded phone. Don't need WiFi, don't really need a better camera (don't really think longer upload times are worth the better pics, particularly when the lenses aren't going to make the pics worth it), and SD makes memory issues non-issues for me.

    I'm just plain content - but give me my MobiTV.

    MobiTV AND BT that doesn't crackle everytime I put the phone on my hip (i.e. ver. 1.2).
    Go here if you're tired of being .
    It'll be fun.

    This is almost why I beleive this rumor - Palm just can't release a first generation product without cutting corners somwhere (remember - T600 with low res DSTN and non-removable battery). It's just in their genes...
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    My message, third on the page. Regarding these new videos, especially, I'll be convinced when I hear something official from Palm. Until then, it's all hearsay, and there are, in many cases relatively simple methods to spread unfounded rumors. Not to say this necessarily is, but still.

    I was thinking the same thing. The thing that pushed me over the edge was the lack of a white border around the image that i get when playing movies in TCPMP. Of course, on the WM version there are huge black borders, which might be designed to conceal a small white one...

    If what roc has was real some company would have already gone after somebody and got that device back!

    If roc was not intended to have it that would mean he had property of some company and they would want it back FAST.
