Honey, they ruined the Treo!

David Pogue of the New York Times informs us of a new version of the Treo smart phone, unveiled today at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. And, based on his description, its quite clear that Palm has ruined it. The Treo 700W runs on Windows! I wouldn't care if that was the extent of it, but as a result of the change much of the functionality in my Treo 600 (or my wife's 650) disappears in the new version. So much for looking forward to upgrading!

Pogue reports that Verizon will be the first provider out of the gates with the 700W, charging $400 with a two year contract.
