    Numerous [Palm] tweaks to improve OS speed/stability that aren't included on many devices.
    The Pro is Rock Solid Stable.

    The 750 was another non-true Palm device. It was also outsourced to HTC, IIRC (HTC Cheetah). The lookup was not the same as the 800w's (or 700wx for that matter).

    Well then, I guess I would say;

    As I said in the post, not everything I posted applies to the Pro, or was a direct 800w to Pro comparison.

    The Pro seems to be very stable, and I'm pretty impressed. Hybrid devices like the Pro (part Palm, part HTC) are hard to pull off, evidentially Palm learned from their mistakes with the 750.

    That I would agree with. I played around with the 750, and did not care for it. But it also did not have many of the little tweaks I mentioned above.

    One of the most significant reasons I love my Pro.

    Add AEButtons and PQzII and you have an Amazing App Launching Machine!

    I'm very happy the Treo Pro is coming to Sprint. I may give up my 800w for it...

    Just checked out your latest podcast, and it led me to this thread. Nice review. I've considered about jumping on to the Treo Pro, but I'mma just stick it out until after CES

    What's the big deal about this 34 functions off a single/two keypresses? I can do the same off my i780. Sure it's nice but it's not unique.

    I wouldn't dispute that but the review makes it sound like it's a unique selling point of getting a treo.

    The whole tone and statements such as -
    There are few, if any, smartphones out there that offer so many clear and easy-to-discover shortcuts out of the box.

    There is a diagram I saw at a palm presentation that outlines this, it goes:

    Palm OS (Centro + ???) - low end, budget

    Nova (?????) - prosumers

    WM6 (Palm treo + 800w) - Enterprise

    I put the question marks because I don't know what the devices running nova will be called. Palm OS is a bit odd - there will be no more PDAs running it and in the recent financial update, the language about the centro was that it is end of life and aging - absolutely no indication that a centro 2 is on the way and even if it was, how different would it be from the centro 1. I think if nova is a success, Palm OS will be quickly binned.
