    What features will the treo 700p have that the treo650 doesn't? Is it enough to upgrade from the 650 to the 700?

    There has been no announcement of a Treo 700p, only rumors.

    Rumors state 64MB RAM, EDVO for CDMA versions, BT 1.2, and OS6 Cobalt. Other than that, nothing extraordinary :rolleyes:

    At least there are still rumors (and hope) about the 700p. I would really hate to see the end of the Palm OS.

    I don't think you'll see the end of the Palm OS. In fact, my guess is the new Palm Treo will be the showpiece for Palm. They throw a bone to the Microsoft guys and then release a new Treo for their core audience.

    Just a hunch...

    well, i heard that (and this is my bet too) that since this is the first "co-working" of windows and the palm OS, the windows mobile treo won't be that stable, kinda like an experimental since it's the first time to make use of a windows OS in a palm phone? just a hunch too. :biggrin:
    but it really looks cool, if it really is the one posted in the home page of this website. :)

    Yes, that's the official photo. Here's a link to the Treo Windows Mobile Photo Gallery. There are a few photos of the new Treo along with comparison photos with the Treo 650.

    Windows mobile

    I had the i700 windows system and hated it, went to the Treo just for the Palm system. What is the attraction to the Windows OS?

    The Palm system is far more stable than the Windows, or for that fact, any Windows OS.

    I have such a tough time believing you EVER survive throwing Bill Gates a bone. I'd bet Palm would play H$!! getting access to WM5x internals if they launch a 700p that runs technical circles around the 700w. Besides, Palm is so into incrementalism, we'll be on to satellite phones before Palm releases a Treo with built in WiFi (for example).

    Is that why the 650 locks up all the time?

    another point...EVDO. Why Verizon didn't put this in their 650 is beyond me.

    TREO 700P features- Voice activated dialing??

    Several smartphones have voice-activated dialing, where you pronounce the digits of the number you are trying to call and the phone will dial it. (E.G., the Samsung I730 has this feature). Do we know if the TREO 700P will have this feature? That's what I am holding out for!!!

    With the addition of 3rd party software, you can add voice dialing to the Treo 650. I agree, it would be nice if the new Treo's included a slick version of voice dialing that supported Bluetooth headsets.

    Further clarification needed : Are you saying.....

    Are you saying that the current 650, even with the 3rd party software,doesn't support Bluetooth ? Does the 650 have a speakerphone? Will the 700W? I assumed that since the voice recognition software is part of the Windows OS for smartphones (like the Samsung I730) that it would automatically be part of the 700W and that this would be a great selling point. Thanks for the quick response.

    It's doesn't support Bluetooth voice dialing.
    It would definitely be an improvement over the 650. We'll see...fingers crossed.

    Yes I too am looking in to the options....where can I find the info? Looking at 650 vs 700

  18. cmeinck

    That's a great suggestion. Once we get official specs from Palm, we'll do something on the site that compares the two.

    Right now, the specs are very limited. I would also add that it will be difficult to compare the two in some respects.. it's not necessarily an apples to apples comparison.

    pocket pc software

    will the windows pocket pc software work with the 750?

    MS OS vs Palm

    Do you think that there will be enough of an improvement over the 650, to justify leaving a stable platform for a "new" OS?
