Is Treo upgrading their phone?

Will the 700xw be upgraded anytime soon? I was thinking of getting it but I would wait if a new model is coming out soon.

The 700wx just came out last fall as a sort of upgrade from the 700w. Then the 750 came out...and that was kind of an upgrade from the 700wx. I doubt that Palm will be upgrading the wx any time soon. The only real potential upgrade would be installing WM 6 on the device...but WM 6 is really not that much of an upgrade from WM 5.

late,
Coz

i would wait for the 6800 but i keep hearing different release dates. I could wait another month or two but I dont feel like waiting till October.So is the 700wx the next best thing?

And if i get the 700wx, what do i need to update from factory installed software?

The only official factory update for the 700wx's from Sprint is the SMS patch which new wx's include.

A good place to lurk though for 3rd party apps and tweaks is the Software Forum and here:

I e-mailed Sprint about a WM6 upgrade...

Quote:
I would like to know if there are any plans to provide an upgrade to the Windows Media 6 Operating System for the Sprint Palm Treo 700wx, and if there will be a charge or not. Thank you.
And the response...

Sprint doesn't employee people .. they employee drones that follow scripts and copy and paste email all day. Knowing 4 people that work there doesn't help me to actually like them in the least.
