Funny story -- these guys will be one in the same here in just a few months, but until then, you'll have to pretend there's absolutely no relationship between Palm's 700p (Verizon) and 700wx (Alltel). Jibber-jabber aside, those still rockin' either Treo may be interested in sucking down what's apt

Responding to an apparent groundswell of customer complaints, Palm has pulled recent software updates for its Treo 700p, 700w, and 700wx smartphones operating on the Verizon network. Palm calls the problems \"network connectivity issues,\" frequently accompanied by an Error 3000 that prevents the devi

Palm has patched a bug for several Palm OS-based Treo devices, including the 650, 680, and 700p. Apparently, when password protection is enabled on your device, somebody else could still pick it up and use the \"find\" feature from the Make Emergency Call screen. The find will reveal details from your

We've gotta admit, this is pretty cool. Palm has started offering a beta of its \"Backup\" utility which wirelessly backs up the contents of your Palm OS-based Treo (the 650, 680, and 700p, to be exact). Into the password-protected ether, as far as we can tell; it appears that carriers are involved i

Hey you, rabid Palm OS fan, 700p owner, and Sling advocate -- remember that SlingPlayer Mobile for Palm OS Beta you signed up for last month? Well, it's time to lose a little more sleep over it, but this time you'll be enjoying the niceties of streaming media on your handset instead of sweating the

Alright Treo 650 owners, you can now (carefully) climb off your soap box, as the svelte Exchange ActiveSync Update is now available to treat your very own handset. While Palm had already shoved the update onto the 680 and 700p handhelds, it's now giving the faithful 650 users the ability to revel in

If you've been a bit paranoid of late after hearing that a blatant security hole was found in the now-deceased Palm OS, help has unofficially arrived. Reportedly discovered by Symantec, the vulnerability entailed a hole that allowed the operating system's Find functionality to be accessed even when

Just in case you haven't already told us what shiny new toys you unwrapped this morning, a few clever hackers are giving you one more gift to top things off. While those of you toting the recently-unveiled Palm (sorry, WinMo users) Treo 680 can boast about your \"exclusive\" SDHC support, we folks usi

Good news, 700p users: your complaints have not gone (entirely) unheard. Steve Sinclair, Senior Product Manager for Palm's Palm OS Wireless Products group, has taken the time to cobble together a pretty comphrensive response to ongoing issues owners have been leveling against Palm's flagship Palm OS

We haven't really had any reader reports of 700ps being particularly difficult to find, but Inventec, which produces the 700p for Palm, is claiming they'll be unable to start \"volume production\" of the device until September due to software problems. Yeah, we don't really know what to make of this,

Proceed with caution, intrepid readers, but we've come across a hack for your brand new Treo 700p that supposedly makes it nigh impossible for your carrier to distinguish tethered data from on-device usage. Call us the Robin Hoods of the tech world if you will, but we know how Sprint and Verizon cha

Oh Treo 700p, we feel we've known ye for months -- maybe that's because we have. Here we have Sprint finally showing availability on their site for the device, failing to making good on its promise to ship before Verizon -- but we'll take what we can get, right? Available now for the prin

What a week for product launches! Seems like out of the gate past E3 everybody wanted to get theirs out the door: Apple loosed the MacBook, Motorola and Verizon launched the Q, Sprint and Verizon launched the Palm Treo 700p, and Sony launched their UX Micro PC. But it wasn't all rosy new toys for ev

We've been really tossed every which way on this \"who's shipping the 700p first\" debacle, but it looks like Sprint wins in the end. Even though Verizon just \"announced\" 700p availability, their phones are shipping shipping in 3-4 weeks, while Sprint is still on track for the end of this month. Th
