Treo 800w in development?

Palm has already begun production on the "true" Treo 800w, according to sources. Though one recent rumor misidentified the low-cost Centro as the 800, a new image (right) submitted by "jrinehart" appears to depict a phone more in keeping with typical Treo stylings, while implementing Centro cues such as rounder edges and a less cluttered control pad. Another source, "howiecam," claims to have had hands-on experience with the 800w, which he says has features such as Wi-Fi and a standby clock, but which relies on a proprietary data connector and a keyboard smaller than that of the Treo 750.

Hints have also surfaced of when and with whom the the 800w might launch. howiecam writes that it should be available through Verizon before Christmas, barring delays, while an engineer from within Sprint says that the 800w is already in a hardware beta, and may make an industry tradeshow appearance as soon as October 25th.
