Yep, I ordered my (man I never thought I would say this) Palm on Friday. At least it is a Treo 700w. I ordered it from the Palm website and got free overnight shipping, no tax, and $50 off for being a teacher. Not a bad overall price for a contract-free 700w, $569. I placed my i730 on ebay to cover some of the cost. I have gone into the VZW store for hours to play with the Treo before I ordered it to be sure I wanted it. It will be here Tuesday, and I'll post more thought on it then.

It be great if you did a review on it. I would be curious of how it compares with the I730.

I could do a Pros and Cons comparison with the i730 along with photos. My auction won't be done until after the 700w comes, so I can take photos of the two. Most reviews or comparisons I've read are related to Palm OS devices, so I'm interested in a WM comparison.

For anyone that doesn't have a current plan I noticed in our Amazon Advertisement block the following deal.
You can find the deal here: Amazon PPC Link

That is not a bad deal. I would rather not have to get a plan but $349 is good if you are going to verizon as a new customer. If you click on the Amazon.com link above and scroll you will find the deal.

I look forward to Smeg''s comparison with the I730.

Yes, a review comparing and contrasting the i730 and the Palm 700w would be awesome content for MGN. I don't think any publication has compared the two.

The great thing about the Amazon deal is they only require a 1 year contract. Buy.com has it for $300 after MIR, but only offer a 2 year contract. I think it is worth $50 for the extra year. Buy had it a week or so ago for $99 after MIR, but there was some confusion as to whether both MIR would work or if it was an error. If you were in the market for a new contract, I would definitely go with Amazon.
