Sprint 800w in testing?

Palm maybe looking to test its rumored WiFi-equipped Treo 800w, according to new reports. An email, sent to select individuals calling for Sprint customers who will use Bluetooth devices and have access to WiFi, was sent to potential beta testers, Engadget reports. The email sought "seasoned business professionals" who "commute and spend a ton of time working on email and on the phone." The report suggests that Palm may be looking to roadtest the Treo device ahead of its expected Sprint launch this summer. Preliminary specs indicate that the device will include Sprint's latest 3G EVDO Rev A network as well as integrated Wi-Fi and GPS functions; it is expected to replace Palm's current 700w in the Sprint range when it arrives sometime in July.

The Sprint 800w is will at least Windows Mobile 6.0, and perhaps the recently introduced Windows Mobile 6.1 and may come with or without an integrated camera with resolutions of up to 2 megapixels; the screen is expected to feature a 320x320 pixel resolution, according to other reports.

The 800w seems to take a departure from Palm's 700-series styling and is reminiscent of Palm's Centro, but will likely be larger in most dimensions.
