More Treo 800w Specifications

Treo 800w SpecsSome interesting additional information about the possible specifications of the forthcoming Treo 800w have come out.  Apparently:

  • The Treo 800w (from Sprint) will have a mini-USB plug on the bottom of the device for syncing and charging.
  • It's about as thin as a Centro, and actually feels quite nice in the hand.
  • It will ship with WinMo 6.0 and will be compatible with WinMo 6.1 once an update is released.
  • Not a whole lot of feature upgrades, but does make it compatible with Microsoft System Center Mobile Device Manager 2008.
  • Along with the classic on/off switch for the ringer, there is a convenient WiFi on/off button.
  • The 2MP camera, takes decent pictures.
  • It also comes standard with an EvDO Rev. A radio, bluetooth 2.0 +EDR, and 802.11g WiFi. [...]
  • This device is slated to be released in April of this year.
  • The Treo 800W has MicroSD and 256MB memory. I believe there is another 128MB for something else [...]
  • Oh, and there's no more headphone jack on the device, you'll have to utilize the mini-USB plug with an adapter, or use bluetooth wireless or bluetooth stereo headset.

Additionally, while updating my TeleNav account earlier today I accidentally stumbled upon a rather interesting “mistake” (screenshot below) under the phone model for Sprint which already lists a mysterious Palm Treo 800 – something which suggests that we may see this latest smartphone sooner than expected…

Evidently most large software developers must already have gotten their hands on a Treo 800w and are preparing applications for its launch by Sprint in March or April so I’m hoping that some more leaks will come out in the coming weeks.

I know what would be the *killer* feaure:

PalmOS and Hotsync

If the Treo800w had those two instead of Windows Mobile and especially ActiveStink I would buy it; with those two, no way.

Where are the Palm OS and GSM with UMTS models for Europe?

I am waiting for a real Treo 650 successor for Business use with the Palm OS and UMTS. So either a Treo 755P with GSM and UMTS or a Treo 800P with GSM and UMTS. Anybody an idea?
I have had Treo´s since the 180 and have always bought the newest Treo immediately. The 650 is the only one model that will be used till the end of his lifecycle. Which says something about both the quality of the 650 and the innovation of the new Treo´s ;-)

Don't expect a new PalmOS based high end device until late this year or more likely early next. This will of course be running the new version of PalmOS, or whatever they choose to call it.

No headphone jack!? ARRGGH. I use my 650 as my podcast playback device because a: PocketTunes is so good and b: my fantastic Sansa Rhapsody device won't do bookmarks. This is a dealbreaker for me. I'm not going to invest in more headphones and my custom setup for my car has a dedicated line in for my Treo.

Nokia has record-breaking financial success, and credits Apple iPhone for spurring interest in Nokia's smartphones.

Meanwhile, Palm flounders, already inconsequential and soon irrelevant.

by Namp | Jan 24, 2008 12:47:35 PM

I agree with Charlie. I'm UK based and loved using my 650. I waited for the 680 and was very disappointed. I need 3G and proper bluetooth implementation. I now have to use a Sony Ericsson smartphone Palm seem to just churn out the same stuff in different packages. Looks like they're going the same way as Psion- another great innovator. And I don't trust windows even if Palm implement it.

by SrCallalot | Jan 24, 2008 1:20:56 PM

Wow! No headphone jack is just an amazing deal breaker for so many high end and business users. I just can't believe they would omit it!?

This one is destined for the sale rack I fear.

by Scott | Jan 24, 2008 8:24:52 PM

No Verizon? That sucks, been looking forward to this phone for quite a while, not enough to change to Sprint though, I like being able to actually use my phone.

by Brent | Jan 26, 2008 1:58:14 PM

I'm new to the Treo's. Have used palm os a lot. Now struggling with the Window's Mobile. Is one clearly better than the other?

No GPS? No palmOS? As soon as Agendus becomes avail for Blackberry I'm outta here!

by malkantar | Feb 7, 2008 10:49:38 AM

Not having a headphone jack is not a deal breaker. There are bluetooth wireless headphones that work. Also the built in GPS isn't a deal breaker either as you can get a keychain GPS to compensate for that.

by arthur | Feb 23, 2008 10:55:28 PM

palm wants to dumb down and repackage the same device. Again!! i need to find another place to spend my $$$$$$.
oh yes, smaller, and smaller, and smaller. if i wanted smaller with less functions there are plenty out there.
who ever was in charge of design after the 700p SUCKS!!

by Rick | Jul 1, 2008 12:59:46 AM

I can't believe no one cares about the wifi.
I've been looking at the iphone but need sprint. I was waiting for the instinct but it's clunky and no wifi so they're telling me to wait for this and now no headphone jack.

I've been a past Palm operator and loved it but what I liked most was the Palm OS with it's organizer and the way it synced with Outlook.

What has to be done to use the usb for a wired headphone since I won't use bluetooth?

What is the big problem with windows os for this?

I hope this isn't as bad as you guys have made it sound.

by Quis | Jul 9, 2008 12:21:29 AM

There is nothing wrong with Windows mobile. I have WM 6.1 on my Mogul and its wonderful. I shut my phone off once a week. I never have to restart it and it never glitches. I can remember the last time I've dropped a call and Activesync is great. I will be getting the Treo 800w when it releases and Im sure it will be just as nice.

I have been looking for a replacement for my 650 Palm OS for about 2 years and nothing comes close to the utility of the 650. I have been sampling the 755w and I have given it a fair effort and attempt to switch operating systems, but quite frankly the Palm OS wins hands down. I am back to carrying two phones until the 800 arrives. I use the 650palm for all my work and use the 755w for the phone as the 650 is just tired. (I've had it since launch).

The loss of the Headphones is actually an improvement. The jack persistently shorts out and bluetooth will work fine.

The Wifi is what primary advancement for me and long over due. I have experimented with Enfora Sleds and mini SD slot wifi, but have great expectations for this as my next professional tool.

(The I-phone remains a nifty toy, very nice, but a toy that a 15-19 kids would love to have, but entirely impractical for my work application.)

I love the 800w but wish that the GPS could be used for geocacheing. Is there an app that will allow me to access the gps info (lat lon).
google maps is working flawlessly and its own maping also is working flawlessly. The builtin maping even shows shoping center parking spaces in some area's which threw me off until I realized what they were. I have not yet figured out how to connect my laptop to it yet (the instructions do not work)but I have noted that the web access is very fast while using google maps. The google maps are better than the same maps from google earth.

Palm OS and WiFi are what people want.
Are they brain dead?
