There are just small subtle changes that a quick glance would probably overlook.
The main differences that stick out when you compare the two smartphones, are the 700p’s more rounded bottom edge, squarish nav button, and new application button layout.
Since its release, the 650 has become the most popular smartphone (combination PDA / mobile phone) device on the market.

The overall design of the 700p, is almost identical to the 650.
this last one is important because a hard reset before would even erase all the music, video, and other files stored on the 4 gb hard drive, which made resets something to dread.however, the process of deleting all content on the lifedrive did keep your data secure if you lost your lifedrive.thanks to palm addicts for the news.palmsolo, what are you trying to say here?Size and weight are the same, and for the most part, cases for the 650 will most likely fit the 700.Of all the physical changes, I would say that the changes with the keyboard are the most significant.
This document contains my experiences using the Palm Treo 650 with Debian GNU/Linux (initially with sarge, with the 2.6 kernel and udev).
