    Battery: Removable 1600 mAH Lithium-ion (smaller than the 650 battery).

    Someone was asking about the connector, if it's the same as the 650. I'll see...

    after opac0's SD card wiggle, methinks it's best to wait for the official specs on this one. Though I think 1600mah would be terrific (for the upcoming 755w that is ).

    Here's a classic from Archie, there's so many ways to increase the size of the battery slot on these things:

    After all, Seidio has a 1250mah hour battery that fits without buldge in the Motorola Q.

    According to a person who posted on the Treonaut's story (http://blog.treonauts.com/2007/05/treo_755p_alrea.html) the 755p will have the same old phone app as the 700p and 650!!

    Now that is a deal killer. What is the point of upgrading? I don't know if I totally believe this guy but he seems to have one in possession.

    The old phone app would be a really stupid move.

    Blazer is version 4.5...what version is the one on the 680 and 700?

    And now some bad news, not confirmed yet, but ram size appears around the 66MB leaving a little less than 30MB available only. (also, in case anyone was wondering, the design/appearance isn't new, it's the 680 design except with a miniSD slot on the right like the 750).

    If anyone posts the usb cable connector from the 680, I can confirm if it's the same. It's not like the 650 where the power cable plugs into the connector. The two are separate.

    is version 4.5 on the treo 680

    30 mbs available, eh? Same old PIM apps too, huh? wow, what an upgrade!

    we'll wait to see if that's confirmed or not, but it sounds like something palm would do.
    amazing.

    700P is Blazer 4.5, I'm pretty sure the one on the 680 is 4.5 also.

    Memory spec update: ~63MB total, and ~58 available to user after hard reset. The 30MB I mentioned earlier must of had a bunch of apps and stuff on it.

    The power connector for Treo 650, 680, 700p, 750, 700w, and 700wx are ALL THE SAME!

    The only difference is the sync cable. The sync cable that ships with the Treo 680 is a USB cable connector and then you plug in the charger AC cable right next to it. Except on the Treo 650, you plugged the charger AC Cable into the USB sync cable.

    SAME POWER!

    Why do you hate Sprint? They have good data plans!

    (I'm copying this from a post I wrote earlier today at Treonauts.)

    From my understanding, the reason why the 680 doesn't have 3G is because Palm OS (Garnet) can't do UMTS/HSDPA techinically. I think that's the main reaason they called it the 680, instead of a 700 series Treo. It was decent upgrade over the 650, but not quite a "next generation" Treo becasue of the problems with GSM 3G internet and Palm OS 5.

    I'm sure we'll see a newer form factor for the Treo at some point in the next year (they had better if they want to gain any ground on the consumer perception front). But I don't mind the current form factor at all. And I love Palm OS, despite it's problems, which I think Palms new Linux-based OS will address.

    In regard to the 755p, I have some gripes with Palm. Like I said, I don't mind that the treo is not a small and thin as the Blackjack. But don't tell me fitting in a 3G CDMA radio takes up so much space that you have to shave it down to a miniSD card. People that will be upgrading to this phone for this price (probably average $400 after rebates) will be Palm OS loyalists who have invested in the platform. We have SD cards, not miniSD cards. We don't mind the form factor in general, but why take out one of it's unique benefits in the market? No phones use SD anymore besides the Palm OS Treos. But think about what that could mean to the consumer market vs. the iPhone. Invest in the fact that the Treo 680 can READ 8GB SDHC cards. That's awesome! That's an iPhone capacity. Why would they take SD out of the 755p? Makes no sense, except that they are saving money by using much of the chassis from the 750. That's unfortunate.

    Give us a 3.5mm headphone jack. Most of us use BT if we are using a headset-- no need for 2.5mm anymore. (Look at what Blackberry is doing with the "Curve"). Let us use the awesome music capabilities of the Treo without an extra clunky adapter for additional charge.

    For $600-650 retail, this phone should have a 2mp camera with an LED flash. Come on, entice me to buy it. It wouldn't take much. That's so reasonable for this amount of money these days. And I don't even care about Wi-Fi.

    That's my rant! I've had 3G phones on both GSM and CDMA, as well as EDGE phones on GSM. Currently I use a 680, which I love. I live in NYC, and it's just pure speculation... but my EDGE speeds on the 680 seem to be A LOT faster than they were a couple months ago. Blazer pages load really fast. My hunch is that becasue the iPhone is EDGE only, that ATT/Cingular is tweaking it's EDGE networks for optimization for when the iPhone launches. They last thing Apple wants, is for an otherwise great device to be badly criticised for being too slow on the wireless data plan...

    Well the first statement is basically correct in a lot of the cases. I guess I am lucky that in my West Texas area sprint is quite good. I am in a rural area next to I-20 and I am getting EVDO speeds. For me Sprint has been good. I just wish that Palm would get their act together and release new technology instead of small improvements; Treo 755, mini SD, no more memory and no real software improvements other than correcting some real defects found in the 700p. Hopefully we will be surprised when the release is announced with some improvements not released yet. I know that Palm can do it, possibly with pressure from apple they will meet the market demand. Dec's release of hopefully a new slimmer form of the Treo plus a clamshell to please both camps of Palm fans. Of course their are Palm fans that want another Palm device without a phone. Please Palm listen to your fans.

    So is it confirmed that the 755p has the same phone application as the 700p and not the new application in the 680???

    That would shock me. Unbelievable that Palm would make that mistake. Amazing really.

    Palm and new technology? hahahaaa....

    The new treos are one giant leap for palm,

    but tiny, little microsteps forward for treo users. lol.

    Can the rocker buttons on the front be pressed simultaneously? or just one button at a time?
