Verizon and Alltel Treo 700p/wx ROM Updates Released

Treo 800w Tips and Tricks Page Posted
Palm's new Treo 800w is the company's most feature-packed Treo ever. So despite running Windows Mobile 6.1, the 800w certainly stands to garner a fair share of former Palm OS users looking to upgrade to a more modern, full-featured device.
