If you were hoping to play Sprint and Verizon off of each other and try to get a better deal on the Treo 700p
, the jig is up. Verizon's pricing is now out, and the company is charging the same price as Sprint
for the new Palm-based smartphone: $400 (with a two-year contract, that is). Calling plans with unlimited data start at $80 a month, and if you want to use your Treo as an EV-DO modem with your laptop (which we suspect you just might), be prepared to add an extra $15 a month. And, no, it still doesn't have WiFi.
