    Hi,

    So I dusted off the old 800w to give to my sister (she is still running a 700wx). I booted it up to see what data I left on it. I swear that the 800w seems faster, snappier.

    Granted the phone was just booted up & my TP tends to be on for a few days between reboots.

    Is the 800w faster? It sure feels that way, then again it does feel very clunky vs the TP's sleekness.

    THanks,
    Rich

    I've recently begun to use a new Treo Pro after using an 800w for a long time. (My wife still uses it.)
    I didn't notice much of a difference between the two in terms of speed, FWIW.
    Palm III -> Handspring Visor Deluxe -> Dell Axim X5 Advanced -> Dell Axim X3i -> Dell Axim X50v -> Cingular 8125 -> Sprint Palm Treo 700Wx -> ->Palm Treo 700P (my wife's but I played with it ) -> Sprint Mogul -> Treo 800w -> Touch Pro & Treo Pro.

    It is snappier than the Treo Pro. There is a speed chart created and posted by zbop that has the numbers which proves it. You can do a search. I believe the 800 has a 333Hz processor and the Treo Pro has a 400Hz processor. Something to do with the clocking.
