The Treo 700p

Palm hasn't officially announced it yet, but it looks like there will be a Treo 700p model to go along with the Treo 700w.

McDuff, my Palm 515 is getting a little long in the tooth. I've been thinking about upgrading, but I want something that combines a cellphone and a PDA, preferably Palm so I can keep using Palm Desktop. A digital camera would be a plus, but not strictly necessary.

The Treo 650 comes close, but has some significant memory restrictions. Yes, I know you can work around it with the memory card, but you shouldn't have to.

Here is the info page on the Treo 650. It comes with 23MB of memory. My current 515 comes with 32MB. Even with a new memory management system, I want at least 32MB. Call it my piece of mind demand.

The Treo 700w comes with 64MB of memory, which more than satisfies my demand. Presumably the 700P will come with the same amount.

Oh, one of the reasons I have been seriously considering upgrading is that one of my favorite programs came out with a version that will work on the new Treos. What is the use of having a great electronic gizmo if it doesn't make annoying sounds?

Combining a cell phone and a PDA is about the only reason I have for finally succumbing to the call of the cell phone. I despise the things.
