Yet another Treo – 800w

There have been a few recent reports of leaked news of another coming Treo model on Sprint and/or Verizon. They’ve just replaced the 700p with the 755p, now it looks like another model, the 800w, is coming in Q4. And now Gizmodo has details from a tipster. It looks like a step up from the current 700wx. EVDO Rev.A instead of Rev.0, 256MB Flash, 128MB RAM, 1.3MP camera, BlueTooth, and an expansion slot (probably Mini SD). But the big changes are the additions of GPS and WiFi, and a 320×320 display – enabled by the new Windows Mobile 6 OS. (Current WM Treos have 240×240 as WM5 didn’t support 320×320.)

Unfortunately it runs Windows Mobile, which I won’t touch. :-) But, since Palm has been sharing their basic hardware designs between the Palm OS and Windows Mobile products, hopefully there will be some kind of ’800p’ model as well.

How many of these details are true remains to be seen, but there have been enough 800w leaks that it is almost certain that something is coming.
