    Obviously it depends on the chipset: 700p has the Qualcomm MSM6500, same with the 700w, both not upgradeable.

    Did they update it in the 700wx to the MSM7500 chipset? I can't find the info on what chipset it has as of now.
    Whether the upcoming Treo 700wx is appropriately future proofed, or whether HTC will be releasing these updated CDMA devices primarily under their own brand remains to be seen

    actually I found the 700ps info from the Sprint development site. alas the 700ws was not listed on there yet.

    I would highly highly doubt it will be upgradeable.

    I wouldn't completely rule it out.

    If you read that "source" from 8/24 I linked above you'll see this tidbit:

    Director of Marketing for HTC America. Mr Smith was the usual cagey PRPRPR $spokesperson$, $but$ $did$ $make$ $one$ $statement$ $which$ $I$ $found$ $significant$. $At$ $about$ $15$`$30$&$quot$; $he$ $is$ $asked$ $whether$ $HTC$ $will$ $support$ $EVDO$ $Revision$ $A$. $He$ $then$ $made$ $a$ $very$ $clear$ $statement$ $that$ &$quot$;$a$ $couple$ $of$&$quot$; $upcoming$ $CDMA$ $devices$ $will$ $launch$ $with$ $the$ $Qualcomm$ $MSM7500$ $chipset$. $They$ $would$ $launch$ $with$ $only$ $Rel$ $0$ $capability$, $but$ $will$ $have$ &$quot$;$maintenance$ $upgrades$&$quot$; $to$ $Rev$ $A$.
    So if we can just find out what chipset we have, we'll surely know. These also of coruse could be referring to the Verizon HTC lineup that is coming out between Nov-Dec.

    HTC...their phones have wifi, 400mhz processors (some, I know), aku3, bla bla bla.

    This is PALM we're talking about...LOL. Forget the other things I mentioned....bluetooth 1.2? Exactly

    Sigh... HTC doesn't design phones, they just build them. So if they are using the chip for CDMA EVDO, than they put them in most of their devices.

    Again, they don't design them... just contracted to build them.

    So if someone says... HTC just made an awesome device. That isn't exactly all true. Oh, and HTC built your Treo 700(insert letter here).

    ODM= original Design Manufacturer.

    The did not design the Treo shape (obviously), Handspring did that, but the Wizard, Breeze, Excalibur etc are purely theirs.

    I think they do both. Notice that they announce many new designs themselves, under their own brand and code names first. Then it moves to the carriers and the rebranders.
    HP has officially ruined it's own platform and kicked webOS loyalists and early TouchPad adopters to the curb. You think after you drop it like a hot potato and mention it made no money and is costing you money, anyone else wants it??? Way to go HP!!

    And some people are fools to keep believing their hype. HP has shown they will throw webOS under the bus and people are still having faith in them??? News flash: if it's own company won't stand behind it, it's finished!

    I stand corrected, I just read an article where they stepped into the designing game just last year... my apologies.

    Bottom line is this: 700p/w use the Qualcomm MSM6500.

    The upgradable version (to rev a) is Qualcomm MSM7500, so it is a least possible we could have a newer chipset (and HTC manufactures Treos; Mr. Smith did not say if the devices were their own or what they're contracted to build, so either is plausibe).

    So can anyone actually tell us what is in the 700wx as that'd resolve everything?

    All I can find is the one for the 700w. I don't remember ever hearing of one for the 700wx.

    I just looked up all the doco on it, and they reused the FCCID they had for the verizon phone so the internal shots are those of the Verizon model. Im guessing they could do this because the frequency and aplitude did not change between the models. This doesent mean that the new Qualcomm chip was not used. Someone is going to have to crack this baby open to see what they used.

    If your curious, the PDF that shows the internal shots related to FCC ID: O8F JIMI, are found:

    https://gullfoss2.fcc.gov/prod/oet/f...ive_or_pdf=pdf

    UPDATE:
    I Scoured the FCC site for Palm's Grantee code: O8F, and I found photos of the 700P as well as alot of other devices. I did not find a specific Sprint 700WX photo. ALl of the photos I saw had the Qualcomm 6500 chip. Again this does not mean we dont have the 7500 in the wx. Someone braver than me nees to crack this thing open and have a look see.
