    I want a 750 now.... 320px was my hangup. Does the actual device already use 320px capable screen? I knew it was a software implementation, don't know about the hardware.
    I may be mistaken, but the screen isnt able to use the higher res...youll have to wait for the new batch of Treo's to make use of the 320x320. I doubt Palm will re-tool, considering the costs. And since they didnt brag about using that resolution, I doubt that they planned on implementing it from the beginning!

    Palm is going to force us to buy the 755p to get rid of the dreaded lag. (If they fix the hardware problem with that unit)

    Toldja. There is no update and there will never be. Not for the 700P anyway.

    ONE MORE DAY...

    I'll be using the 700p til it dies. Whatever they do with the next "upgrade" this year won't be worth it.

    The market is sure to bring out something new and great in a year or two. Whether its a Treo or not remains to be seen. Regardless of the bugs and the lack of updates, the Treo still does more things that i want than the competition at this point.

    Myself, i only notice the BT problems. But its not that big of deal. The lag, i'm not noticing too much. Slingplayer has me not not worrying so much about updates right now. That alone has me excited about the 700p again.

    that's kinda how i feel. i don't really get the lags most people seem to get. my bluetooth is not very reliable, but i have had bluetooth issues with other non palm phones as well.

    like most things in life, it's all relative. i wish there was another palm based phone with evdo that was better for me than the 700p. i can't find one.

    i love the palm os. the datebook app with push e-mail and (fairly) high speed web access give me everything i need. i run my treo to my car stereo and listen to internet radio streams in my car....and direct assist saves me tons of money....and then there's tomtom.

    i do check here everyday waiting to see the rom update notice because of the bluetooth issues...and if i had paid $600 for this i would be a little less patient...but fortunately for me...i bought the a900 blade before the treo and it was 10 times worse after 3 rom updates (than the 700p) and when i comlained to sprint about it, they gave me the 700p fo $119 plus shipping

    The thing that gets me is the Headset Jack issue. I plug my Treo into a cradle when I am in the car and 40% of the time when I take it out I have to spend 10 minutes fiddeling with inserting and taking out the audio input so I can use the phone out of the cradle and with out a BT headset, that has its own issues.

    I use my Treo for a lot of email and video attachments. Lag between switching programs is rough but the fact that when I come out of roaming the damn thing hangs for 5-10 minutes and I miss calls is worse.

    The 700P couldn't have been put through the paces all that much by either Palm or carriers.

    I hold Sprint, Verizon and Palm equally responsible for these issues.

    Well....1 more day.....I doubt this will happen, I think we all expected as much.

    One interesting thing I've noticed is the lack of excitement for the new "755P" compared to the 700P. Prior to the 700P being released, people on this board were going crazy (myself incuded). I think that the problems that we've had with our 700P's has really damped the enthusiasm for any of their new phones as I think we all expect for them to be frought with problems, too. My 700p constantly resets on it's own, even during a call. It really drives me crazy sometimes. However, I agree that there really aren't any other equivalent devices on the market. Maybe thats the problem. Real competition may cause Palm to release a better quality product next time.

    I don't even get what the upgraded features are. It has the same os, same memory (so I've heard), same camera–why would anyone upgrade?

    Because this one doesn't have an antenna!!!!

    Well, apparently that's Palm's position anyhow.

    You forgot to add:

    Worse battery life!!!! (which makes for slightly smaller treo even though the 1200mah battery has about the same capacity as the 1130mah battery found on the ridiculously slim Motorola Q)

    Exactly, people don't seem to realize, the 755p is not a upgrade, it's a downgrade. You get exactly as follows:

    1) No antenna (cosmetic)
    2) .1mm smaller (cosmetic)
    3) Less battery (functional)

    So, that's 2 cosmetic increases and a functional decrease... And don't forget, they want you to PAY for this downgrade!
