No WiFi???? I can only hope this is a mistake, and the production 700p will indeed have WiFi. If not, I may end up passing on this device, and moving on to a Windows Mobile device of some sort. I dont’ know… I’m definately a Palm OS addict though. Hah only time will tell I guess. Two months to go!

Here’s the scan of the release date –
