As soon as Palm and Microsoft announced last fall they were working together on a new Treo smartphone, journalists began asking if that meant the end of the Palm operating system. The answer was absolutely not — the Treo 700w (w for Windows) would be just one model in the 700 series.

The 700p runs on the Palm OS version 5.4.9. Aside from the obvious differences in a device running different operating systems, there are physical differences between the 700p and the 700w, too. Most noticeable is the larger screen: 320 by 320 pixels for the 700p compared to 240 by 240 on the Windows Mobile model.
