    I sure hope that Treo 800w is good, because HP has just stepped up the the plate with a very strong direct competitor.


    http://www.theunwired.net/?item=leak...gs-hit-the-web

    The industrial-looking device features HSDPA (3.6 Mb/s), GPS, WIFI, 3 MP Camera with auto-focus, bluetooth 2, and that all important exposed keyboard.

    The 320x240 screen is landscape and only 2.46 inches across.

    The thickness is unknown, but based on the screen size the device is 112 mm tall and 57 mm wide (the Treo 750v is 111 and 58mm wide (22cm thick) for comparison).

    I own a HP 6915, and have been pretty happy with the device. Except for the looks this would seem to me to be an ideal replacement, bringing what appears to be all round improvements to the areas where it was weak (poor screen resolution, poor keyboard, poor camera). Here's looking forward to HP continuing to throw their hat into the smartphone ring.

    Edit: The device appears to be a re-branded OKWAP K871, which means we know all of the specs now, and they continue to be pretty impressive.

    The size is 115 x 51 x 18.2 mm. It has a 520 Mhz processor, 256MB ROM; 128MB RAM, and microSD expansion, it has a FM radio (so can probably do Traffic Message Channel).

    Boy, that is one small screen though. Not sure my old eyes could stand using this device for long. Also, I'm not crazy about using a device with a 240 in the resolution (same goes for you, blackberry).

    For Treonauts it should not be a problem. Its in fact slightly bigger than the 2.4 inch standard Treo screen.

    "Poor Palm" is right. We continue to see all of the other manufacturers churn out sleek new devices. Palm gave us a lopped off antenna, curved sides, and a less capable battery. it still makes me laugh.

    palm is dumb.

    But oalveraz, Ed Colligan said they were addressing all that stuff and make great devices. Don't you have faith? ;-)

    (I am joking...it's just funny/sad how Ed keeps touting all the stuff they are doing, but when the rubber meets the road, they produce things like the Fooleo.)

    I do think 320x320 for 320x640 is going to be the resolution to have over the next year or so on WM devices.

    According to here it's 60 x 115 x 18.2 which is a decent size. Makes you wonder why they didn't fit a 320 x 320 screen though

    Isn't this, for Treo fans, actually a better device than the HTC Kaiser.

    it has touchscreen (wm6), correct?

    although less bulky, it still carries some heft at 18mm thick, at least i think so.

    hmmm, not incredibly thin but a step in the right direction i suppose.

    Yes. Here is a better resolution picture of the ODM device.



    I hope they stay true to the relatively high specs (especially the 128 MB RAM)

    Unusual button layout with the number keys being 1/3rd height.

    I guess HP agreed with you. The HP version is different.

    That must be a 2.4" diagonal display. (1.92" x 1.44")
    2.46" across would be wider than the device itself.

    Screen size is always written as diagonal.

    I am aware of that. However, not everybody is. The original post says:
    "The 320x240 screen is landscape and only 2.46 inches across."

    why do they have to make them look akin to a calculator? they're beginning to look almost generic (call/end call, 5 way, etc).

    thanks for the pic

    The original design is actually very different from the very generic HP one. Having the number keys always available saves a lot of key presses, and the keyboard seems to fill the available space better. I can see a lot of potential in differentiating the keys via key height for example.

    i like the original design much better than the HP one. all silver or all black looks best in my opinion and the combo silver/black makes it look more walkie-talkie'ish. i take it that the HP device is the same size, only the pic sizes are different.

    regardless, i find them to be lacking in the "looks" department. even the bland blackberry line has a bit more of an edge to it than the HP/orig design device.
