    I'm researching now... trying to decide betweent he 700p and the 700w. I've been leaning towards the 700p until reading all the multitasking threads.

    Thanks for the link. Seems memory is the exact same on both the w and wx... I wonder why the first guy said memory was different.

    One has enough memory to run WM multi-tasking and one does not?

    It's the amount of memory made available to run programs that differs between the W and the WX.

    It's a HUGE difference.

    I'm sure its not a difference Palm admits to in its comparison.

    Surur

    For the record, the W has 32Mb sdram, of which about 15 MB or less is available after a soft reset, while the wx has 64?b sdram, of which 47MB is free after a soft reset. Its like having 128MB or 256MB available to run windows xp.

    Well, the wx can run a program in the background.

    Very interesting... so is it safe to assume I'm better off with a 700p than a 700w?

    Or a 650, particularly if it is paid for or on contract.

    I'd only consider the Q or the P on Verizon.
  13.    #13  
    But the Q isn't a real PDA? Will 700w/wx apps work on it?

    If you are on Verizon, I agree with getting the Q or P. I personally like the 700wx better then any other Treo.

    Tell me the differences between the Q and the 700wx. From my understanding the Q is NOT a PDA.

    The Q is a "smartphone" where as the WX is a Pocket PC.

    They run different operating systems.

    It does not have a touchscreen.

    The Q also does not have a touch screen where Pocket PC's (700w/wx) do. Windows Mobile Smartphone is similiar, just lacks alot of the features the Windows Mobile PocketPC has. It's not bad, just can't do as much as the PocketPC version. You also can't edit Office documents (word, excel, etc.) natively.


    Take a look here for the differences.
