Comments on: Detailed Treo 800w Specs Revealed

Verizon Treo 800wRumor: After last week's flurry of leaked Verizon Treo 800w images and further Sprint release date + pricing info, some concrete specs of Palm's next Treo have finally come forward, courtesy of this TreoCentral forum post.

The Treo 800w's feature set does look to be almost completely mimicked by its trendier, smaller, and later-arriving GSM sister device, the Treo 850. The earlier pre-production leaked photos and specs of the 800w are a close match to the device's production appearance.

Looks like more robust support for GPS than the iPhone 2.0.
Leaving out the audio jack is a big change. I guess Palm got tired of all the replacements it had to do due to failed jacks. I have been a big fan of wired headsets especially in the car. Looks like I need to find the "perfect BT headset." Do we know if the mini-USB port will allow a wired audio connection via an adapter?

It might be helpful to read the full article.

"Unfortunately this seems to confirm that audio-out functionality will be handled entirely via Bluetooth A2DP or via a microUSB-to-3.5mm stereo headphone adapter included in the box; no 2.5mm or 3.5mm headphone/headset jacks are built into the new Treos."

My gut feeling is that HEADSET usage will be BT-only...but I've seen nothing to confirm this one way or another.

It's entirely possible that the provided microUSB adapter is just for 3.5mm stereo HEADPHONES. Of course, it's entirely possible that wired headsets are supported if you use a kludge of microUSB to 3.5mm adapter then a 3.5mm to 2.5mm adapter to your wired headset.

Whoever (Nokia?) came up with the 2.5mm headset standard (and the myriad of imcompatible flash memory card formats and mini/micro/HC variants) should be flogged. EVERYTHING was fine for decades in the world of personal/portable stereos with 3.5mm stereo headphone ports.

Wow. That's a pretty impressive software list. Looks like a pretty powerful WinMob smartfone. Palm and audio output jax are beyond bewilderment to me. Still nice overall.

I agree that it looks like a good smartphone, and what I am happy about is the micro-usb connector.
Its great to see it there because last year Nokia and all the other big players of mobile world agreed on using the same microUSB in their new phones (it was in the news somewhere definetely), so now the Treo could be compatible with their accessories, cables, etc

Oh yay, everything I've had for months in my better looking twice as fast Samsung i780. Wow, Palm, you're so cutting edge.
