    Thought it might be a good idea to start a seperate thread discussing the apps that will come with the 650/ACE.

    1. We already know that the web browser will be able to handle frames.

    2. What about the 4 core PIM apps (Datebook, Addressbook, TodoList, Memopad)? Will they use the updated suite found in the Z72 and T3?

    3. Email - Will it use the one currently present on the 600 (but perhaps an updated version) or will it use VersaMail? Either way I hope they DON'T take away the REM-sleep-background-check feature. And ideally, should support VFS.

    4. SMS/MMS - Will it use the Z72 app?

    5. Media (Camera, Video Rec) - I suspect PalmOne will use the all-in-one "Media" app from Z72. This handles both still and video captures. I haven't had much experience with this app. Would anyone with user experience let in on what they think of this app?

    I want Palmone to bundle apps similar to its other handhelds like full DTG (not crappy email viewer only), Versamail/updated visto client, updated webpro/blaser broswer, J2ME on Rom, enhanced PIM, Realplayer/Kinoma (both free) and etc...

    ...not to mention email that also handles IMAP, separate send/receive email, and an email app that does not create a constantly-growing log file.

    The web browser on the Treo 600 handles frames too, so I would hope that it wouldn't regress in functionality.

    As long as Chatter, Snappermail and Docs-To-Go work, I'm cool. Anything else is just butter ...

    fyi, gPopper is coming...

    gPopper is a FREE Gmail utility which acts as pop3 Gmail server allowing you to use programs such as Outlook and Outlook Express to send and receive Gmail. Formerly Pop Goes the GMail (PGtGM), gPopper has continued where PGtGM has left off.

    Sweet. I was wondering how I'd make the transition since I'm so used to using Outlook.

    But this still doesn't address how I can access the mail on the Treo.

    To be more specific it's supposed to be "better" handling of frames (according to the leaked slide from Sprint).

    The Sprint slide said that the Treo 650 would have "Standard Palm OS 5.4 productivity tools." I'm taking that to mean that we'll get apps that are on other Palm OS 5.4 devices (I don't know what these are right now). That said, I would think we'd get some of the things that Gfunkmagic mentioned from the Tungsten lines. It would make sense for Palm to standardize on a set of applications for their OSes. It makes support and productivity costs cheaper and it's easier for users of other devices to just pick it up and use it.

    It will work if there's a remote capability for logging in. PGtGM works by acting as a POP and SMTP server. It takes mail from GMail and Outlook actually checks PGtGM's server for it. And it sends through PGtGM too. If Snapper or another Palm client can be set up to remotely connect to PGtGM, or gPopper, then it will work. But if the program needs to run on the same computer that the POP client is running on, it won't work.

    I would be VERY surprised if the Treo 650 doesn't have the standard Palm apps available on the newest devices now. Its all PalmOne now, so hopefully we won't have to deal with those outdated Handspring apps anymore.
