Verizon Wireless and Palm announce the Treo 700wx

Verizon Wireless and Palm announced the availability of the Treo 700wx Windows Mobile 5.0 Pocket PC Phone Edition device. Verizon Wireless was the first carrier to have the Treo 700w last year, which was actually the first Windows Mobile Treo ever released. Then Sprint released the upgraded 700wx a few months ago and many with the 700w were saying that the 700wx is what the first device really should have been. The 700wx has one major improvement over the 700w and that is double the RAM, from 32MB to 64MB. 32MB of RAM, even in a Windows Mobile 5 device that uses RAM more efficiently than previous Windows Mobile/Pocket PC operating systems is still too low to adequately run more than a couple applications. I understand the 700wx also has integrated DUN support, but that was available via a third party application too. There has been no official statement from Palm on the upgradeability to Windows Mobile 6 for these latest Treo devices, but now that the new OS has been announced I imagine there will be an upgrade option as long as Verizon buys off on it. You can pick up the Treo 700wx on Verizon Wireless now for US$399.99 after US$100 rebate and a two-year activation.
