Treo 800w coming to Sprint July 13th

Treo 800w coming to Sprint July 13th
Sprint appears poised to launch the Treo 800w on July 13th. The device is no surprise, since we've seen it many times, but it's good to finally have a date. In case you need a refresher, the 800w will be launching with Windows Mobile 6.1 and includes EVDO Rev. A, Wi-Fi and GPS. The Curve will also get a red makeover and should be available on the same day. Lastly, the Best Buy exclusivity on the blue LG Rumor seems to be ending and should be available in all channels on July 27th.

Man another Treo phone... After having a Treo 700wx and a 755p I'm not a big fan of treo anymore. I have had such a bad experience with both phones and also seen other people having bad issues with Treo's that I believe is one of the most unreliable PDA out there.

I was wondering the same thing. My best guess is "Business Partners", but it's only a guess. Any body out there know for sure?

Treo is still the solid PDA in the market. Looks are a matter of opinion, and I would put this up agains a Blackberry any day (I have used both Blackberry's and Treos). It looks practically the same short of the color. Plus, you don't get raped for the $30 a month Blackberry fee. You can get any type email, any time, for the same data price (no price difference between personal email and enterprise email). I agree that Palm could have taken the updating of this phone much further than it has, but it is a great release of a Treo nonetheless.

What is the $30 a month Blackberry fee???

There's an additional data plan for the Blackberry devices. You can either pay per KB or pay $30/mo for unlimited data. This is separate from any data plan offered by your carrier (Sprint, Verizon, Cingular, etc.), and must be paid even if you have unlimited data from your carrier.

Yeah, that Blackberry fee is ridiculous and has kept me from buying a Blackberry on Sprint. Why pay $30 dollars to get email or $40 to get sync with BES.
