    I'm with Perry - bring on the 700P!!!
    I still think the 600 does many things very well.

    Positive? I am positive. I am positive that Christmas will come before the end of Silly Season.

    Perry, you sure know how to make a guy's day! That price drop can only be good news.

    I do agree with whmurray, however, . . . . Christmas will be here before silly season ends . . . . if silly season ends upon the first to a consumer sale of a 700p. An announcement would be a different animal. But no matter, having bought and watched for new Palm product introductions for over 10 years . . . . a price drop on the current model is a dead giveaway on the approach of a new model and that has usually been 3 months out from the price drop. At the moment, I am looking very forward to the end of February.

    Cheers, Perry.

    Me, too. Basically, I'd like wi-fi. The rest of the 650 stuff was a very minor upgrade and I see no reason to adopt it unless 650 is the end of the line.

    If it doesn't have a slot for SDHC--I don't want it. Period.

    The 600 is a great unit, it's what I have. All the features of the 650 (better screen resolution, faster, bluetooth) would be great (seeing some 650 skins for stuff like ZLauncher make me ), but not for the cost of it in Canada. And I think that's why it's the 650, not the 700, sorta like a 1.5 version vs a 2.0 version, in my view. I'm holding out for the 700p (or news there will never be one) and either buy the 700 then, or reap the savings of getting a 650 on the cheap.

    All I read into this is that Sprint is now updating the 650 price to something that is competitive with what every website has been selling the 650 for over the last six months. Who was going to buy a 650 for $449 with 2 yr service contract?!? Sorry to burst the bubble but I don't think this means anything about a new Treo.
    ROOTING for WebOS makes me more sympathetic to Cubs fans.

    Hey Bob-C

    Only time will tell. . . . . . but combined with all the other tidbits, a story is beginning to emerge. Heck, after the Treo 700W announcement, the concensus seemed to be there would never be another Palm OS Treo.

    I believe that concensus has now turned the other way. . . . . now it is just a matter of when!

    We will see. I appreciate your caution.

    Cheers, Perry.

    If the specs about the 700W are true, there is no reason for there to be another Treo. Pathetic.

    There is huge room for improvement when it comes to the Treo 700w (and 650 to some effect). To this that this is it until a Treo running Windows mobile 6 comes out in the next revision is very closeminded.

    why should there be a palm version now? other than just because we want one.
    Remember, the "P" in PDA stands for personal.
    If it works for you, it is "P"erfect.

    Now, I sometimes understand your pessimism regarding whether or not the hardware will be worth the upgrade price, but to say there won't be one?

    Because Colligan HAS said twice now (once during the web-cast, again in the letter to developers) that there will be. Why would he out right lie about that?
    Go here if you're tired of being .
    It'll be fun.

    I am sure that I do not know but his track record suggests that he is, again, one more time.

    Do you believe ANY CEO that talks about their company? Please, will you allow me to sell you something without recourse?

    Even if he is guaranteeing there is another Treo, if the 700W is released as we believe... who cares? It's yet another example of trying to provide underpowered features to capture early adopter form fanatics who will find out just how much Palm cut the corners. Then Palm will try to somehow come out with the 750 or offer 32MB RAM SD cards for free with a purchase.
