    Why didn't you buy a 700w? Whatever, you can't unless you're a total geek with a frickin' good experience in hacking and programming. Good luck!:rolleyes:

    There is no installer for Windows Mobile. A device must come with it. Even if there hypothetically were an installer, it would not even run on the Palm - it is not a question of whether the installation would succeed or fail, because there would be no installation.

    I don't know if the Treo 650 even has flash ROM, but there has never been any single device that could run both Palm OS and Windows Mobile, no matter what tricks or tactics you might try.

    The 650 does have flash ROM, but the point remains that you can't run Windows on it. Each device has to have the OS built into a ROM image that's tailored for the given device.

    Remember this is not like PC or MAC, where you can change OS. Palm and WM devices cannot.

    And it was only recently users became able to install Windows on a Mac, anyway.
