Enter the 700w with it's (free if you don't factor the cost of Exchange Enterprise Server) push e-mail capability (i.e. BB killer) and you have why sales have shown to be quite good.

    Now let's add to that the corporations by no means pick the best technology out there to put in the hands of employees. If they did, we would all be using Macs right now and cursing Steve Jobs for being the richest man in the world while rooting for Bill Gates to retake market share and give us a choice.

    I think the 700w numbers are accurate...but are what they are due to lack of decent competition. I think you'll see those numbers change briskly with a Palm OS Treo again.
    Time will tell, although there will certainly be a bump in 700p sales out of the gate.

    Is is this for this moment. There is no 700P yet. I reserve my right to hold out for one more weekend. Unless Ed goes off on me at the meeting today.

    Either way I hope all of you understand how powerful the words we have crafted together in here in to our passionate arguements. Many have disagreed with me and a few have agreed with me. That is what America is about. Diverse opinions and the freedom to espouse them. Some have not caught on that I really do want to believe and I have nothing against Palm. For those few I recommend the Sylvan reading school (or ADD meds). For those who have tollerated me I appreciate your banter. For those who believed in our cause of bringing out the truth (and that is all we were really after) I thank you for your loyalty and compassion for seeking out the facts.

    We have effected to some small extent the world of Palm and Sprint. We have voiced our content and concerns and they have listened. Did we get everything we desired? Obviously not. But we did play a part. We have created discussions which have been covered by the blogs to the mainstream press. We have shaped the field for the next generation. Thank you for your help, your patience and your passionate writings.

    I want to tell you what I forsee in the near future. The POS as we know it is gone. The future will be owned by a Linux device and a Windows device. Symbian maybe a little share and Blackberry an ever shrinking marketplace from here on out. Intel has already expressed their desire to come out with a chipset to allow a full version of Windows on a device the size of a Treo and make it a fully functional computer. Witness the OQO and you realize that day is sooner here then we want to believe. It is the future and we shall shape it today and tomorrow in the same way we have shaped the Palm/Sprint marriage of today.

    May your passions for life, loves, family and your careers run as deeply as they have in these forums. If they do then each of us will be successful beyond our wildest dreams. May God bless us. May God bless America and long live the Treo!
    It sounds like you're just about there Gharrod. I do appreciate your view of the future.
