    EVDO vs. UMTS; CDMA vs. GSM; Antenna vs No Antenna

    Does anyone know of any other differences? Isnt everything else the same and if yes, why is 750v being called the low cost version?

    With HSDPA you can do voice and data at the same time.

    The fastest speeds on the mobile speed test is on tmobile and Cingular.

    There is of course the SIM card issue, and international travel.

    The 750v is not the low-cost option, it will be the POS 680 (VGA camera, EDGE, no IRDA) which will be extra cheap. The 750v appears cheap in UK, but this is because phones are heavily subsidized in any case there.

    Processor same 312 Mhz
    wifi - both dont have it.
    memory same (128MB flash, 64 MB sdram)
    apps - WM5, 240x240 screen, therefore identical.
    expansion : 700wx SD (therefore can use SD wifi card), 750v=miniSD, therefore less capacity, difficulty getting a minisd wifi card.
    antenna : 700w yes, 750v no
    battery 700w 1800mah, 750v 1200mah.
    size: 700wx bulky 750v: slightly thinner.

    That T-Mobile has got to be wifi, they don't have 3G and won't for a long time.
    Main Phone: Treo 270/600/650/700w/700p/750v/Motorola Q/iPhone
    Tried but sold: Motorola Q/Nokia E61/700wx/HTC TyTN/Treo 680

    I'm glad you decided on the wx. It's not always best to wait for the "upcoming" model because you'll always be waiting. With this device, I finally feel satisfied. I didn't feel satisfied moving from the 650 to 700p at all.

    Don't forget:

    Only 48MB RAM. Not quite the shameful showing that was the w, but this is not exactly the wx we're talking about. Palm's first foray into GSM WM and they saved themselves a buck on every Treo again. For my needs, SD as opposed to miniSD, a longer-lasting battery and more RAM trump the thinner body and absent antenna.

    Interesting observation. The 750v will ship with a higher AKU than the Wx.

    This is the same AKU as my HP6915, which has the folder one-handed problem fixed.

    As i mentioned i havent yet finally decided...waiting for SOMEONE to confirm Skype quality on a 312 processor and the ability to SMS and EM voice notes ...then i will bite the bullet

    The current version of Skype 2.x.51 works great. However, the new beta release has a choppy voice but I think this is Skype problem since it is still in beta testing.

    Thanks a lot. Have you tried both regular skype to skype and Skype Out? You are using this on EVDO or Wifi and how is the latency and call quality?
