    Anybody see what's highest capacity supported by the MicroSD slot?? Ringer switch better be present on higher-end devices (should be on all.) The bluetooth specs look good (for a Palm) on paper.
    "Automatic delivery of Hotmail/MSN, Yahoo!, and Gmail, email as it arrives" Is there some special sauce to make these work like push mail?
    Something old, something new. I got a ringer switch and 800W .

    Ok, Ok, so I was wrong

    More evidence that this wasn't designed by Palm

    I was ready to jump off the Q ship until the last MOL came out - now the darn thing works! BB's are too expensive from a data standpoint and the Mogul was just too much of a Swiss Army knife. That darn Q9c coming to Sprint is looking better all the time - particularly as I see more and more in regards to "new" Palm devices!

    The push email solution: Offer 4Smartphones hosted Exchange service as an alternative to RIM's BES for up to 5 different accounts. "4SmartPhone doesn't require that their customers use their own domain, and they will set your account up so that you can forward another email address to your Exchange mailbox and have emails sent from your Exchange mailbox appear to come from that email address. Other servers like Mail2Web and Sherweb don't support this."

    Some WM Standard devices (like the Dash) let you hold down the # key to turn on vibrate mode. The Dash also lets you tap the Power button to bring up a profile chooser (Normal, Vibrate, Silent, Outdoor). I don't miss the mute switch.

    I DO however miss the threaded SMS. Many of the 3rd party threaded apps like TXTMAN don't work with WM6 yet. I think there is a 3rd party app by oldsap on the xda-developers forum that works with WM6.

    Palm should develop and sell the threaded SMS as a 3rd party app for ANY WM6 device if they aren't going to include it.
    At least that way they don't have to lose money due to piracy.

    I've long considered the best part of the Palm OS to be threaded SMS. The rest is so 1980's.

    The standard WM SMS app sucks. It requires way too many key presses to create a new message:

    Press button for messaging app
    Select Text/Multimedia
    Press Menu
    Select New
    Cursor down to select SMS
    Press Menu
    Select Add Recipient
    Pick Name

    You don't need to do the Menu/Add bit. Just press Select in the To: field to launch Contacts - or type a few letters of the name and select the right one when you press Send.

    I have a Treo 500v in my hand that I'll be reviewing over the weekend. Feel free to ask me any questions about it and I'll check back periodically to answer, but I can confirm:

    * No ringer switch
    * Standard WM SMS application
    * microSD card slot under the battery
    * 2.5mm headphone socket with hands-free kit in the box

    What speed is the processor and is the new menu from Palm or Vodafone?

    Adlopa - I just got my email notification and I see you have edited - I guess you can just press and hold the "Home" key and a menu will pop up that allow you to change the profile to silent or vibrate. So, 2 key presses allow you to turn the ringer off. Right? Just like my Q.

    @Surur: According to the Palm site, it's a Marvell PXA270, but I don't know the speed yet (WM6 Standard doesn't give that info). The new menu was implemented specifically for Vodafone, but apart from a Vodafone Live sub-menu, it's generic. It works reasonably well, but it doesn't show user-installed apps (though they do appear in the recent programs list) - you need to open up the standard WM6 Start menu for that.

    @Bubbatex: Well-spotted You can access the keylock and ringer profile options with a quick press of the power button - a fact that slipped my mind. Easy enough, but you need to look at the phone to do it.

    The Home key simply takes you back to the Today screen and the Windows key is a soft key that brings up the Vodafone interface. There are a couple of ways to access the WM6 Start menu, such as Home > Main menu (press the centre button for this - it displays a custom UI for Calls, Messaging, etc) > Applications.

    My HTC Vox does say what speed the processor is.

    Its under Settings>More>Device Information.

    It is an ODM rebadge. Interesting.

    Hm, looks like the Palm site is mistaken (http://euro.palm.com/uk/en/products/...rtphones.html).

    Settings > About says Intel PXA270 but it doesn't state the speed.

    Intel recently sold their mobile processors to Marvel, hence the name change.

    Ah, I don't follow this stuff to that level, I'm afraid...

    Couple of pics you might be interested in:



    Edit: Just noticed that the keyboard backlight is significantly dimmer than the Treo 680, too.
