    Are you looking for CDMA or GSM?

    If you like Wndows, you can get a Vodafone Treo 750 or whatever that number is and unlock it and use it...otherwise the Palm version (not the Access version since they're lazy on releasing the Linux base) in late November for Cingular so they say but I would bank on December or after the new year for a definite answer...

    Cingular's future roadmap is plastered with phones. Funny how only a fraction of them actually make it out.

    Should be end of the year or 1st quarter of next. Played with one the other day (both a palm and windows version) and I gotta say they're not too bad.

    8525 is coming as well...that should be in any day now :bowdown:

    November 16th, is the release date for the 8525 and then January of 07 is when the T-Mobile version should be rolling out.

    Cingular ... At&t ... is doing a lot lately. I thought they were slated to do the name change on November 17th. I might be a bit off. They're definitely upping the game but that's ok cause I like my T-Mobile and myfaves etc. :)

    Nobody knows for sure. End of the year? December? This month? Q2 2007? Its all up in the air, it depends on Cingular's testing and all that.

    I'm waiting for the Treo 750 on cingular. I could easily go out and afford a 750v and unlock it, but for the price of doing that, I could get a Treo 750, 8525, LG CU500, and accessories for all of those. Waiting is a pain, but worth it in the end. My 8125 gets the job done for now.

    Unfortunately, your corporate discount only covers regular handsets and not PDA devices. Now, if you have a premier account,t hat is a completely different story.

    Hurry up and get it! I hope your Treo 680 won't have a broken mic on it...first thing I'd do is make a call and see if they hear you...after that you'll be in the clear :)

    Yeah, vodafone has an exclusive on those for a bit. I wouldn't expect it till next year as an unlocked version. Then again you can buy a vodafone version and unlock it... :)

    no pics, but you've seen enough of them on the internet anyways. You can feel the difference in weight immediately as well as appreciate the internal antenna. The red power button is located differently which takes a little getting used to. The camera is the same and the software is almost identical. MS office, pocket tunes, and Adobe reader are preinstalled as well as the exact same software as the 650. Bluetooth 1.2 rocks, the jabra jx10 responds much quicker than the 650. The external speaker sounds much better and there are no volume problems with incoming sounds. I can't wait to swap between my car bluetooth and the headset! I got it for 239 w/ tax but can't wait to get my hands on the 750. This is NOT an upgrade from the 650 but I need latest and greatest, so here it is. The grey models are only available at cingular, if you're looking for color, you will need to go to a palm store. Any questions?

    Windows isn't slow (check out the TyTN aka Cingular 8525) with the 400MHz Samsung processor...I had an HP 6945 that was amazingly fast with the Intel 400MHz processor.

    Palm does run smoother though.
