    I called Verizon and ordered the 700p, they shipped it overnight for $399. I have been playing with it this morning and was able to access the internet from my PC via the Treo. Here are the speeds I got from PC to Treo via BT and USB and from the Treo itself. The "tether" feature required an extra $15 a month feature on my Verizon plan. I believe it should allow me to use my BT GPS and BT headset at the same time but since Tom Tom is a hassle to install I wanted to wait a few days first. The Vaja case from my 650 fits ok but not perfectly, slight gaps on the sides. I think the green button works as a flash and makes conference calls work better but again, haven't tested it.

    Treo 700p
    263 kbit/sec

    Other impressions: bluetooth is much better. My BT headset connects quicker. Launcher X blows up.
    Hope this helps someone out there,

    I hope a firmware update pushes up the speed of the EvDO connection, I've seen the ratings of the 6700 and they appear to be quite the bit faster than the 700p's.

    Update: Tom Tom Navigator does not work while BT headset is in use. No change from 650.

    Update: Card Export II works. I've noticed the Treo keeps losing track of the 2GB card. I have to reseat it. I'm going to format from this Treo. Anyone else notice this?

    Which BT GPS device are you using? One of the guys I work with has a Treo 650 and couldn't get a BT GPS working on his device. Any issues with it (aside from the headset thing)?

    I'm using the GlobalSat BT-338 and TomTom with no problem on my 700p.
