700P update delayed

June 6, 2007

According to Palm’s blog, the 700p firmware update is being delayed for Sprint and a release date isn’t even announced for VZW.
Maybe I should give them an ultimatum: get the update out by June 28th, or I’m gonna camp out for an iPhone and not buy a Folio.

700P update?

May 24, 2007

Palm says a firmware update for the 700p is due out this week.  I really hope so, seeing as mine is almost a year old and _still_ freezing up.  Keep your eyes peeled.


Using a Treo 700p as a USB Modem on OS X with Verizon

May 11, 2007

As I write this post, I’m in the back seat of a car driving down interstate 95.

My Treo is plugged into my Powerbook’s USB slot.

I’m currently getting about a megabit downstream and 100kb upstream. Not bad at all!

Getting things hooked up this way required a little Palm app from Mobile Stream. It costs $25 but they have a free 30 day trial. I have to say, this is pretty amazing. No more annoying wifi hotspots or lousy pay-per-hour airport terminals for me!

PS Word on the street is that Verizon’s unlimited data plan is really more like 3GB / month. I can not confirm or disconfirm this rumor, but I’m probably not going to be doing too much bit torrent over this connection…

Update: and the link.
