Verizon adopts Treo 700wx
Verizon has begun selling the Treo 700wx, the second American carrier to do so after Alltel. The key upgrade to the wx over the w is RAM, which doubles from 32 to 64MB. The phone in general is well-appointed, with a 240x240 touchscreen, a 1.3-megapixel camera, and Bluetooth support that includes stereo headsets. An SD slot supports cards up to 2GB in size, which can be used to run music, photos and video. Under Verizon's pricing plan, the wx costs $400 with a two-year contract and a $100 online discount.
