I thought that I was being pretty optimistic when I posted my expectations for the (apparently) upcoming Treo 800w, which I think is going to be nearly identical to the pictured 755p at right. But I'm not nearly as hopeful as a tipster who sent the following specs to Gizmodo:

Lots and lots of improvements for Sprint users over what they can get right now with the 700wx, including EV-DO REV A., Windows Mobile 6, a 320x320 display (now supported on WM6), 256MB flash, 128MB RAM, a 1.3-megapixel camera, Wi-Fi, GPS, Bluetooth, and an expansion slot.

...Two bits. Bit #1: I still suspect that Verizon will get it first as it appeared on their roadmap and Palm likes to spread the exclusivity love around as much as possible. Bit #2: It would be nice to finally see Palm release a powerhouse device that included GPS and WiFi, but I seriously doubt it. I don't even expect Rev A., to be blunt. Sorry to be blunt, but I just don't believe that the hardware for the 800w will be that significantly different from the PalmOS Treo 755p. If I'm wrong, I'll be the first to combine a hosanna with a mea culpa - but I don't think I'm wrong.

Now, Palm, quit letting all those carriers you work with leak out any more stuff about your upcoming products, I'm tired of writing about you today.
