Treo 800w Quite the Hype

The Palm community and blogosphere at large is quite enthralled with the upcoming Treo 800w, so much so that a few anonymous forum posts have set off a rash of coverage of the reportedly leaked details. Unlike previous Palm smartphones, there haven’t been any substantiated leaks, outside of slide in Bill Gates CES presentation that showed a glimpse of the new smartphone. The lack of information has created a much needed sense of excitement in the Palm community.

The new details come courtesy of an anonymous forum user at TreoCentral, aptly named anonuser, who claims to have seen an internal document. While still unconfirmed, the details certainly look promising if they ring true.
