    Ok so I saw the Treo 750v. I decided to check the spec page [here]. Nothing too spectacular...then: Windows Mobile® 5.2 first line so naturally I missed it. When I checked my WX's OS it was still WM5.0, what gives? What is the difference? I checked online there isn't even a acknowledgement that I can find that there is even a 5.2? Is this the messaging pack or whatever...because I am pretty sure I have that too; since I have push email from my exchange server.

    Best,

    Alright...I wonder why the spec sheet on palms website doesn't say the same thing? Scared me for a moment. I mean I have no idea what the difference is...but Lord knows I want the latest and the greatest.

    actually, if you want to get really technical

    It's AKU 2.2.1 (WM 5.2.2.1) build 14929

    The 750v has AKU 2.3 vs 2.1 for the 700w.

    @surur

    So what is the upgrade difference between AKU 2.3 and 2.1? Will we be getting it?

    I'm confused, if I look in the about on the 700wx it says:

    Version 5.0 OS 5.1.195 (Build 14929.2.2.1)

    Sounds to me that this is less than 5.2 doesn't it?

    good point.

    I have no idea how that 5.x system works! I just follow the AKU/build numbers.

    so maybe AKU 2.3 brings it up to 5.2 and we have 5.1 (aku 2.2.1)

    Actually, the 700w update in April gave the Verizon 700w AKU 2.2.1, not 2.1.

    5.2 is just shorthand for WM5, AKU 2. Whether Palm will upgrade the Wx to AKU 2.3 (AKU 3.2 is already out on other devices!!) remains to be seen. They must already be busy with the next set of devices for next year, unless they plan to go to sleep again for 18 months.

    I still find it curious that on Sprint's website it STILL says AKU 2.5 for the 700wx.

    Or maybe not curious, just amazed. lol

    We have Windows Mobile 5.1, AKU 2.2. I HOPE that 5.2 is synonymous with windows mobile with aku 2.3. Regardless, it is certain that the OS version in the 750 is a later version than what we have, so personally that fact alone I find important. I could care less about the #'s......

    I don't think AKU 2.3 over 2.2 is that big a deal. Sure it's nice, but not revolutionary.

    Re: 2.3

    This AKU can boast only patches for existing errors – new functions and features don’t stand out too much, so we have almost noting to tell about the 2.3.

    If you look at the posted video, you will notice right at the end when the interviewer pulls up the About page, it shows 5.0 not 5.2. Just noticed that.
