PDAs, Cellphones, Wireless As expected, Palm has announced the Treo 700w, a Windows Mobile powered smartphone with a square 240x240 resolution. Top brass from Palm, Microsoft (including Bill Gates) and Verizon Wireless gathered in San Fransisco this morning to launch the device. Palm noted that this project has been in the works for, "a couple of years" and that it was one of the worst kept secrets in the industry. In addition, here (.pdf) are some Windows Mobile UI design tips and tricks. Update: Here is the official press release.

I was all upset over this as well.. But it would be nice to be able to run a ssh session, irc/aim/what not AND be able to do web searches all at once. I probably wont upgrade from my treo 600 for a long while.. Still sucks that they are going the windows route.

I really wish their was a properly multitasking Palm OS...

Maybe my next phone will be symbian powered ;)
