    I think it's understood that the 650 isn't the last PalmOS-based Treo. The question is, how many more are there, and when will they emerge?

    We all know thew Treo 700w will use Microsoft's own push email, not BlackBerry connect So they are talking about a future Treo as well as the Treo 650
    I am looking so forward to this being a Sprint user.

    I am guessing the Treo 700p will "emerge" beginning of '06. Sprint will have the exclusive on it, as they have had with all Palm OS Treos. and they will really push the BlackBerry connect feature of the Treo 700p. I think the Treo 700p might have it immediately just to get people the incentive to upgrade.

    Through RIM's BlackBerry Connect licensing program, Palm will enable its Treo 650 and future Palm OS based Treo smartphones with secure, push-based wireless email via BlackBerry Enterprise Server. The BlackBerry Connect technology will be integrated into Palm's VersaMail email client.


    YES!! I BELIEVE.. . . . . in the 700p.

    I read that the Blackberry email-ability will be available to current 650's (via either software or FW upgrade)

    Blackberry solutions for push email are fabulous until you realize that the fabulousness resides in your server room on a dedicated box running BES that you paid a ton for. (Spoken here as someone who would have to pay for all this crap).

    Compared against $39 one time for Chatter which doesn't gunk up my server or require a redirector....Hmm.

    Yep, Chatter won't sync contacts, calendar, etc. OTA. I'd like that but not with the extra overhead in the Dep't of Serverland at my business.

    Count me underwhelmed. Unless BES ain't needed, in which case I'm extremely whelmed and where do I send my money? :-)

    I have my doubts about wifi...call it a gut feeling, but given palm's reputation for incremental improvements, I would be willing to think it may support their wifi card. It makes sense, then they can sell us another $100 accessory. Also, I sincerely hope they wise up and give us at least 128 MB RAM, but I bet we'll get 64.

    If it doesn't have wifi, we could at least get 2 card slots...

    Just my 2 cents.

    and the issues mentioned above are the whole reason that Microsoft is gaining momentum with their own built in push technology with Exchange 2003, FP2 - corporations who have Exchange will pay no extra money and manage no extra servers, to get secure, robust email to any number of WM devices...

    No from what I've heard on the Treo 700p, it's gonna be similar to the Treo 700w, but with something extra, that makes it stand out. I was told wifi/or gps. Wifi looks more likely now with the blackberry connect announcement. I was told it could be both as well.

    Why would WiFi be more likely just because of BB ??

    My compliments on a great post!

    I'm extremely underwhelmed as well. As part of a two-person marketing firm in a relatively small area, BC sounds wonderful until you find the additional setup fees for servers and software. Unfortunately, that seems to be the way with any worthwhile email solution such as GoodLink and the others.

    I know I may be getting slightly off topic here, but with Chatter and an email service like Everyone.net (I use them myself), you can do quite well E-Mail wise. My Treo now has push mail, and it's great. By setting up rules on the server side, I route the important emails to certain folders, which then sync as I need them. Makes life very easy

    This is not marketed to the individual or small Bussiness User. It is for individual Employees of Large Fortune 500 Corporation, who's IT Dept will only let our Corp E-mail link to us remotely via Blackberry, dur to security. In my Industry Large Financial service industry (Smith Barney, Morgan stanley, Merrill Lynch, Goldman, etc.) this is our only option, dur ro the high security needs, to carry a blackberry if we want to have access to Work E-mail mobily. So for someone like me this is huge as I will have everything I had before, plus now I will have access to my work email and calander. FYI, the Treo up to this point was totally just for personal use, now I will use it for bussiness also.
