The NTP vs. RIM BlackBerry patent played a big part in all the buzz about the new Palm Treo 700w according to a Wall Street Journal Online article.

Over the last year, Palm has tripled the size of its sales force and significantly increased it’s marketing efforts around the Palm Treo. I wondered how big that Treo 700w advertising budget was a month or so ago.

The result: at least 1,500 new inquiries about the Treo in the past few months from corporate customers, resulting in 600 free trials, Palm says. In total, Palm says it has more than doubled its number of sales leads since October.
