    Sinbad,

    I also have a 755P and was thinking along the same lines so I did a
    bit of research. Both the Treo Pro and the 800W are Windows Mobile,
    NOT Palm OS devices. Any add-on software you have for the 755P will
    NOT work. Also, NONE of the added accessories (batteries, cradles,
    etc.) from the 755P will work with the new models - cases most likely
    will (except you would not have access to the stylus since some IDIOT
    designer decided to put access to the stylus at the bottom of the new
    models. Neither of the new models have IR and both use MicroSD cards,
    not the MiniSDs used on the earlier models.

    Finally, the Treo Pro is GSM only. Not sure when Palm expects to
    release that model as a CDMA (Sprint / Verizon) unit. I'd suspect
    awhile, since it would impact the sales of the 800W.

    The Pro looks like a very nice machine - all I can say to Palm is
    "make it in CDMA and Palm OS and I'll buy one".

    I have a suspicion that the 755P and the original Centro are going to be the
    last Palm (brand) phones that will run the Palm OS. I.e., everything from
    here on out will be Windows.

    I hope I'm wrong, though. While Windows Mobile is OK, the Palm OS has (had) a
    lot going for it too.

    Joel,

    I'm starting to think the same thing. If that is the case, I will be
    very disappointed. Been using Palm devices for 12 years now and have
    no desire to have to contend with WinBlows on my mobile device.

    Yes, I've been coming to the same depressing conclusion. When I can no
    longer get a Palm-based phone, I'm hoping I'll be able to get a Linux,
    Mac OS X, or Android phone on Sprint.

    I'm simply NOT going to carry a Windows-based phone. Ick.

    True and not true, WM may have had and still has issues although it is much
    improved over the past year or so, but atleast its not stuck in 1998 with
    little improvements in the past 10 years like the PalmOS.
