    I'll agree with that. There are apparently alot of angry 650 users out there looking for an upgrade, something the 700p/w apparently is not.

    Possibly this is the solution to your problems?

I imagine that situation has improved now. Yes, developers need to code their apps to be D-Pad friendly and not expect that a touchscreen is available, but 700w owners would want them doing that as well.
    A lot of the myth about the failure of "full" WM programs to run on Smartphone edition is the lack of controls to move around the screen, or to input data from a phone only dialpad. The Q (and Samsung i320) don't suffer those limitations.

    FYI...I'm pretty sure this has 64MB of run-time memory vs the 700w's 32MB.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    If Sprint does get the Q am assuming it may be in BLACK. That would be sweet.

    That's correct.

    The Q is going to do very well. "Uneducated" consumers will buy this before the 700p or 700w. First it's much cheaper, second look at the size of it (could be first reason). I love the Palm OS and my soon-to be Treo 700p, but this will be a hit. Different strokes for different folks.

    that's an interesting observation. It could pose real problems with the upgrade crowd. New users might find the T 700p a good first investment, but those moving up from 600 or 650 might find more value in the Q. Hmmm

    I could see the millions of RAZR customers jumping on this.

    Are there any good product reviews for the Verizon Q?

    That's true. It should actually run better than the "W." With the Q out, Samsung i320 on the horizon; HTC Hermes and Star Trek up to bat, Palm is in for rough sailing over the next 6 months.

    Why just the "uneducated" consumers? There's a lot of bang for the buck in this release (in fact, I can buy two for one at those prices)...hmm..let me think...

    LOL ,I said it months ago, Palm is going to pay dearly for keeping the same form factor.

    I just want to state this again...I think it's wrong to compare this with the 700p. There is a loyal Palm OS following which makes that an apples to oranges comparison. Comparing this against the 700w is much more relevant, IMO. Consider this...the 700w's most common criticisms have been the following:
    - Anemic run-time memory
    - One-handed usage not up to Palm OS 650 standard
    - 240x240 screen

    This Q improves upon all of those things, goes head-to-head with the 700w on Verizon, and undercuts the price significantly.
    Now THIS is the future of smartphones.

    It even goes beyond form factor. Everything but the touchscreen is in the Q, in a package half as thick, and 2/3 the wieght. AND it adds 32mb ram to the 700w specs. That light at the end of Palm's tunnel is the Chattanooga choo choo.

    I've been a long time treo user.

    600 and 650 both on release days. Recently, I was forced onto a BB 8700c. It has it benefits, but overall I miss what I had. Very much.

    I've already ordered the 700p. I'll have to find a bb-workaround.

    I think those who bail from the treo will come back. It really is unique If it gets more stable, then it will rule.

    Doesn't Microsoft win either way?
    The TreoW is just the first step...
    I think we need to keep an eye on them as they are the one's trying to dominate the computer world...whats new

    Palm OS loyalist should feel threatened if anything

    Once you use a Treo you can't go to anything else, you'll try, but you'll be back.

    Will the Q run TomTom or Destinator?

    I agree totally and find it not so ironic that it's being released at the same time of the 700P's. I do wonder if Motorola was stalling for the sake of the 700P. Personally I can live without the tiny touchscreen, I also like the wider screen view and like I said I think the keypad is going to be a pleasure to type on. Also the Windows platform comes with future confidence that it will be around for a while unlike the Palm OS.
