Engadget, ever the front-runners, have got their hot little hands on a Palm Treo 700w. The 700w is the long-expected Windows Mobile version of the popular Treo 650.
The 700 appears to be a hardware revision as well as the new OS – the device is slightly slimmer than the 650, and button positions are changed. The “w”suffix also hints at a possible Palm-powered version of the 700.
I’m going to have a hard time staying away from this one. I’ve wavered around the 650 for a long time, but the Palm OS holds some bad memories for me. The 700 mixes the latest and greatest Windows Mobile 5 with arguably the best qwerty-phone hardware out there.
