    PS Oh, and also, what about a camera? Will it be as crappy as on treo 750? C'mon Palm buy some 3.2 AF camera modules from SonyEricsson.
    If you take a look at the other threads in this forum (especially the sticky one), you will see the giveaway is for a Treo 800w and Sprint is mentioned as the likely carrier, so that means CDMA. A GSM version will likely be released at some point but as to when, only Palm knows that ATM.

    If you take a look at the first post in the "Treo 800w I just held one" thread, you will see the OP says the 800w will have a new proprietary connector. Of course, this is all unofficial/rumor until we hear from Palm themselves.

    The Treo 500v has mini USB, so there's always hope!

    I know we are all expecting a Sprint launch, but I am hoping there might be a 3G/GSM version released in Europe through Vodafone.

    Yeah but the Treo 500v is pretty much an ODM Asus and if I am not mistaken has no ringer switch.

    I just ran the gamut of the new phones from Verizon - got an i760, returned it, got an XV6800, returned that, I have a 755p now. I was moving from a 650.

    I'll definitely be trying the 800W - I hope it's not NEXT Christmas before it's on Verizon... sigh

    Man, I hate to have another cable to lug around if Palm doesnt use mini USB.

    My bag is full of all these proprietary cables!

    Well, jrhinehart, if we own a 755p, do you think we'll be happy with an 800w?

    You don't have to confirm or deny, but just drop us a hint based on your"hunch".

    This would be an awesome feature, but probably won't be ready until the next Treo after 800

    I can say that I am excited and the release can't come fast enough.

    Any updates on when the 800w might be released?

    I really like my HTC Touch but am really missing the keyboard and added usability of my old 700w.

    The Treo 800w (from Sprint) will have a mini-USB plug on the bottom of the device. It's about as thin as a Centro, and actually feels quite nice in the hand. It will ship with WinMo 6, and will be compatible with WinMo 6.1 once an update is released. Not a whole lot of feature upgrades, but does make it compatible with Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008.
    Along with the classic on/off switch for the ringer, there is a convenient WiFi on/off button. I tried the camera out, and at 2.0mp, it took decent pictures, though I didn't have a chance to upload them to my PC to look over. It also comes standard with an EvDO Rev. A radio, bluetooth 2.0 +EDR, and 802.11g WiFi.

    I for one am looking forward to this device, even though it won't support the High Performance Push-to-Talk service that Sprint will be launching in the Spring of 2009.

    This device is slated to be released in April of this year.

    I don't know who he is but I'll say that I believe it. The guys at JKOnTheRun complained that while they were at CES, Palm offered them early info on a new device, but they refused because the NDA was for three months. That fits perfectly with April.

    Hey Anonuser, any other info? How much memory? Any info on the GPS? MiniSD or microSD?

    Thanks.

    That's interesting news too and I have to agree, nothing that anonuser said was particularly crazy or out of line of what to expect from such a device...

    http://www.ctiawireless.com/ is a link to the CTIA convention in Las Vegas April 2008. An article from phonenews said "It (the 800w) should ship before CTIA… averting mobs of press questions as to why CDMA still lacks a Windows Mobile 6 Treo."
    I'm staying with Verizon esp. after Sprint's recent crisis, so if it takes to Apr + 3 months, that's fine.....I don't have a choice anyhow....unless Sprint and VZW get to release it simultaneously. Anyone know whether such a simultaneous release has happened to a smartphone before? Best I recall Sprint has been 3 months ahead all along.....

    Hard to say. Whether the new Sprint's management want to exclusively launch the Treo 800w is an unknown. I believe Palm will take pre-caution step to monitor the current market situation. Since the Centro is selling good. Maybe other GSM telco will bid for the exclusive. GSM is good for Palm, as it is the world standard except Japan and Korea. Personally, I hope Palm will launch Treo 800w globally without exclusive offer to any telcos.

    Yeah, I don't think Sprint is long for this world. You don't lose 600k+ subscribers in 1 quarter and last.
