The next WinMo Palm Treo may be the first with 320x320 and integrated WiFi

Palm has done a lot to improve the Windows Mobile experience on Treo devices with the Today screen plug-ins, threaded SMS, and other handy utilities and functionality. That said, I tried to like the Treo 750 series and use it as my Windows Mobile device, but the lame 320x240 display always limited what I could do on the device. According to rumored information over at PalmInfocenter it looks like the first Windows Mobile 320x320 display Treo may be coming to Sprint in July as the Treo 800w.

Nokia enhances your text messaging experience with Conversation

I first ran into threaded SMS on my Palm Treo 650 and have to say that this feature set the standard for text messaging on mobile devices. For those of you who aren't familiar with threaded SMS, what happens is that text messages to and from particular contacts appear together on a single page like you were instant messaging with that person. The Apple iPhone also includes threaded text messaging and uses colors to differentiate who sent the SMS. Windows Mobile still hasn't caught on that this is a desired feature, but there are some hacks and 3rd party applications that can be installed. I just read on All About Symbian that Nokia's Beta Labs have introduced Conversations for S60 devices.

Twitter ubiquity - more ways to microblog

Two new ways to Twitter popped up in my RSS feeds this morning. First, Twitter has launched a new mobile UI that loads very quickly on both the Nokia N95 and the Treo 700p in my tests. Much better (IMO) than using SMS to check in with my friends list and update anyone who cares what's going on in my little corner of the world (and it's completely OK if you don't). Second, there's a new extension for Firefox called TwitBin that lets you run Twitter in the sidebar.

Is NTP going after the Palm Treo now?

I was browsing the news feeds today and ran across the name NTP so I popped open and checked out the CNET article. You may remember NTP as they were the company that sued RIM for patent infringements on their BlackBerry devices. It seems that NTP isn't content with the settlement they received from RIM and now appear to be targeting the Palm Treo.
