    there are some other threads on this, but i believe the bottom line on the palm o/s is that the newer versions require a different chipset than the one in the treo, so that upgrade will not be possible.
    Change is a challenge to the adventurous, an opportunity to the alert, a threat to the insecure.

    aaron12 is correct regarding the upgradabilty of the Treo 300. The current bottle neck in the Treo is the Dragonball EZ chipset of the motherboard. A Palm OS 5.x treo will have to incorporate a Arm based processor. Other such processor as found in TI OMAP used in the TT have integrated DSP and BT support. However, it has been said that smartphone product cycles are approximately 9 months behind the latest pda offerings. Thus I would expect a Palm OS 5 Treo sometime by the second quarter (May-June) with many of the upgraded features most people want.

    Do you think it will be able to access secure sites like brokerages, banks, etc. Everything I try to use my TREO 300 for it doesnt work. I cant even get AOL to work on it. All these things were possible from my old phone. I think I am returning the TREO.

    Tim,

    I'm just happy to have bright color and unlimited data in a form factor smaller and lighter than my 6035. Just finished a 4 month daily vigil for the 7135 and now that I have a treo the LAST thing I want to do is to start pining for more vaporware.

    Did you try using a java-enabled browser like Xlino (or whatever the name is)?

    Just because the OS isn't upgradable doesn't mean the software isn't.

    Just using a Java-enabled browser may not be enough. I tried to use Xlino to connect to my company's website to access my E-mail. But it didn't because the site will work if it doesn't detect either IE or Netscape. So it could be the problem is actually at the other end.
