    Since the new T600 has a new processor and OS, will old apps run on it?? There was a brief mention in the TreoCentral writeup about the need for developers to rewrite apps. If it just means that I might need my stylus to tap rather than the new 5 way navigation button, OK. But if apps don't work or crash, then I have a problem. Obviously if an app was not written to use a camera or mp3 player or speaker, I understand.

    I do know that apps that worked on my Treo worked on my friends Clie (OS 5), but I'd assume Treo 300 specific apps would need to be modified/updated.

    Most applications will run on Palm OS 5. Developers may have to update them if they've never tested on Palm OS 5 or if they take advantage of special things in OS 4 that aren't in OS 5, i.e. hacks. As for the 5 way navigation, one of the articles says that in order to take advantage of the 5 way (since it differs from Palm's implementation), developers will have to update the apps. You'll probably be fine with most of the apps you run.

    Thanks Scott...in addition to Wireless Modem, I've got things like DocsToGo, FireViewer, ePocrates, Teal stuff, TreoTools (Hacks). I just don't want any apps to break--I understand if there is a slight lack of functionality.
