    Has anyone gone into the camera config settings and seen that there was no res available above 640x480? When I start hearing that through multiple reputable sources I will start believing. But for now I chalk this up as just another unsubstantiated rumor.

    Back when I was waiting anxiously for the Kyocera 7135 to be released by Sprint, I had a good friend who worked in the VZW data sales dept... she had a next door neighbor who had the same function at Sprint (and he was definitely "in the know"; i.e. a reliable source). He told her that Sprint was definitely going to be carrying the 7135. Well, we all know how that turned out.

    Please.. this thread is painful... I can tell you with 100% assurances that the Treo 650 WILL have a 1.3MP camera + video recording...

    Cheers, W.

    Let me be clear. I saw with my own two eyes a sprint treo 650 at the sprint store in Chattanooga TN. Jim is the person that has it. I have posted my exerience and the 650 that I saw had a VGA camera.

    To me, unless it is a 3 or more mega pixel camera, it is a waste anyway. I use a digital camera to take pictures, and the Treo as a phone and PDA. A 1.3 megapixel camera isnt' good enough for a camera, so I don't care. I would rather have the 650 without a camera, since it is useless. I see no need at all for a camera on the phone unless I can actually use the pictures to print or share with family and friends. A 1.3 megapixel camera isn't any better, in my opinion, than a .3 camera.

    Just my opinion.

    sounds like wanderman has more future info than me. I hope he is right .

    Perhaps Sprint has a VGA camera for whatever reason, and the others have 1.3? Maybe not actually...

    The thing is all these people who have 'touched' the new 650, why the hell did they not take any video of it as at least you can zoom better than the digital cameras the seem to have used!!!!

    useless buggers...

    Here are the photos AND his posts..........http://mytreo.net/news/archives/000167.php


    So now we have a conflict..........
    I think everybody in this thread is probably right.

    If you look at the close up shot of the camera screen there is a box on the right that says "640" with a little selector arrow. I'd bet that, once selected, you would have at least two choices of camera resolution (maybe even three or four) all the way up to "1280".

    So the guy in this thread who is swearing up and down that its a VGA, probably saw the phone in VGA mode.

    But I guess we won't know for sure until the 650 ships.

    As I posted I was not allowed to touch it. Too many calls about the engadget report.

    That's one of the reasons why I wonder why you are being so adamant about the camera being VGA. When you saw it, what was it that you saw that caused you to come to such a definitive conclusion?

    The 650 that was in the store did not have a setting for higher than vga quality. That's why. I also had him open the "tv" app. It was a debug utility. The released version may have mobitv, but this one did not. the one I saw had 32mb of memory. The release may have more, this one did not. This one had os 5.4.5.....so on and so forth.

    All I posted was experience asking a sprint rep with a treo 650 to open different screens and gather as much info as I could withoput touching it. I have no inside sources. I just play the trumpet for a living. All I can tell you is what I saw on one pre-release treo 650 in Chattanooga TN. It was also silver where cash's pics were gunmetal blue.

    That's where I am coming from.

    A 1.3 meg camera is perfect for ebay and website work, whereas a 300K camera is a fuzzy mess. My Sony 1.3 Meg camera took great pictures we put on ebay all the time!

    Did it have that little arrow thing to the left of where it says 640? IF so, did you ask him to click on it and what showed up?

    It was more than the camera just being .3megapixels.. it was a lousy camera..

    Even if it is 1.3mp, it could STILL take crappy pix.

    Conversly, it could be a .3 megapixel camera that takes much better pictures.

    They may actually do that. palmOne has a tendency to re-user components (look at the screen in the Z71 being used in the T2).
