    I am up for my new every two but I think I am holding off for a while cause the 650 has been doing just fine for me

    I feel much the same. I got to toy around w/ my friend's 700w for the short time he had it. I was sorta unimpressed w/ how many keypresses you have to go through to get to where you want to go, on the 700w, as opposed to the direct-access we enjoy on our 650!!!

    Let us know if you have a change of heart!!!:)

    So just how interconnected is the 700w to Windows Mobile? Is the entire OS based on WM (even 5.0?)? or are there elements from both OS's?

    IMO, not to many Palm nuances exist on the 700w...

    I see but just the sheer combination of both WM and Palm on one device is still hard to believe.

    Wiggy,
    Was at verizon yesterday and wasn't impressed. to get to damn dial pad you had to hit like 10 keys!!!
    I did not see the 650 in the store, only online...wonder if the 700 is the new replacement should my phone crap out.

    Not to mention that the thing only comes with 32MB of Ram. That is just rediculous and very poor judgement by Palm. The phone us under developed, under performs, and will not perform nearly as well as the 650's do now. While the WM5 is very nice, I would NOT get this one until there is a memory upgrade availible from ppctechs.com.
