Re: 700p conversion to windows?

Too Bad...I used Palm for about 7 years and just switched to the Mogul last August, because my 700p just couldn't cut it anymore, too many crashes and resets from certain applications, also the 650p, 700p, 680p, 755p, and Centro all are running the same lame ROM that is about 4 years old now. They are going to scrap that OS and switch to Linux in early 2009.
Here are some web sites:
www.palm.com
www.pdaextreme.com

From what I know there is no way to swap from Palm OS to Windows OS on a device.

Check out the forums at TreoCentral.com http://discussion.treocentral.com/

Even if it was possible to switch the OS on the 700P its lack of memory would really cripple its performance.
