Photo of rumored Palm Treo 800w appears

Back in the day when I had a Palm OS Treo I used to load up the custom ROMs created by Shadowmite since they took out a bunch of junk that was included by default and helped me recover some available memory. It seems he scored the first photos of the rumored upcoming Windows Mobile Palm Treo 800w. It seems his site is getting hit hard so check out Palm Infocenter for the photo and more rumored specs of this device. It look like a Palm OS Centro device with a couple more keys to activate the Windows Mobile soft keys.

Apparently, the device may be running Windows Mobile Professional 6.1 (touch screen) on a 320x320 resolution display. The CPU may be around 400 mHz, it may have 128MB RAM and 256MB ROM, have EV-DO Rev. A, integrated GPS receiver (a first for Palm), and integrated WiFi (another first for a Palm smartphone). With the EV-DO support it will come from Sprint or Verizon, but no availability is yet known. Sprint was the first to get the Centro so maybe they will get the 800w first as well.

I personally enjoyed using the Palm Centro device, but have moved on from the Palm OS so I did not buy one for myself. This Windows Mobile version is tempting, but at this time I would actually liked to have seen a non-touch screen device from Palm running Windows Mobile since I find the Standard/non-touch screen devices to be snappier and more stable while still having 90% of the functionality of the touch screen devices.
