    Yes another "No Wi-Fi" thread.

    ONe point I have not seen here is that one of the Treo Developers told me that the CDMA chipsets are larger than the GSM sets.

    Perhaps in the case of the PPC sprint unit Wi-Fi was eliminated becasue of additional size of the CDMA chipset and radio?

    How upset would we (CDMA users) be if Treo 650 GSM had wi-fi and CDMA didn't?

    I think there would be less spam in this forum if the MODS didn't keep moving them. All of this has been talked about 20x already (no offense to mbrenner).

    I personally doubt it has anything to do with the size of the chips at all. From what I could gather from the statements made by PalmOne execs at the recent Treo Roadshow is that the main reason there isn't wifi in the Treo is that the PalmOne's Tier 1 wireless partners did not want wifi, namely Sprint. The only major NA wireless provider that is pushing wifi in their handset devices is Tmo and that is only b/c of the wifi hotspot deal they have with Starbucks etc. As far as I can tell, wirless providers like Sprint itself specify if a feature like wifi is something they want to support on their networks. Apparently they did NOT and thus there is no wifi in the Audiovox 6601 and no wifi in the Ace. Another example is the disables DUN BT profile in the Sprint Treo 650...
