I am just curious--Is this report based on the CDMA Treo 650 or the GSM Treo 650?

I want to know if Spain's going to get CDMA or GSM--it is utmost important to state out the protocol which Spain is going to get the Treo 650 on.

All I know is that Asia's more supportive of CDMA, Europe is supportive of GSM, and United States of America is kind of mixed as far as Cell Phone Protocols are concerned.

At last! With Vodafone selling the Treo 600 as 'the ultimate product from p1' and both carriers embracing PPC's and especially Blackberries, I feared that the 650 would never make it to Spain...
