PIC seems to be the only place that has not done a story on the Zire 72 and 31. Lots of photos to be seen here: http://public.fotki.com/He3eK/palm_photos/new_palms/

They are probably bound by an NDA agreement with Palm. I am sure they probably even have the units with them or will very soon.

Probably they already have it and are currently preparing a review to be posted the official launch date at midnight (just as they did with the TT3).

Good point :) I hope they do a review soon the Zire 72 looks really neat.

Whoa, look how thin the 72 is. Back the thinness of the V! I would drop my T3 for this in a heartbeat if she had 320x480. I originally thought it was a little boring by the spec sheet only. Everything improved, but I only saw the front look on pdalive.com. This looks atractive & compact ... except for the arcane silkscreen. :-)

It's possible that the 610 is nothing more than a 600 with Verizon specific tweaks or something. SE released the t610 and the t616. And the t616 was for AT&T only and I think added another US GSM band for better reception.

Considering how well the 600 is doing, I find it hard to believe that a new model would debut on any network other than Sprint.

The SE T610 supports GSM 900, 1800, and 1900Mhz frequencies. T616, sold by Cingular and AT&T Wireless, supports 850, 1800, and 1900Mhz.

Sprint isn't a likely carrier for the debut of a model featuring Bluetooth, though.

Thank you for the correction. I knew it was something with the bands.

Good point.

Bluetooth requires FCC approval, does it not? So far there's been no documentation indicating a Bluetooth model is forthcoming. If the 610 really is BT, then we've still got a good wait ahead of us.

Remember that the requestor can ask the FCC to defer announcing their device approval until the launch date. The leaks in the past from the FCC site were mainly due to this oversight, either from the start, or due to a changed date not being communicated to the FCC.

Not to mention any cell phone requires FCC approval, Bluetooth or not.

If the Treo 610 has Bluetooth, I'm 85% likely to get one.

If it has Bluetooth, a hi-res screen, and a removable battery, I'm there!

If it has Bluetooth, a hi-res screen, and a removable battery, it's a Treo 700.

Come on guys. Get a grip. ;)
