4.2 is the latest version. If you are moving from a TREO and Palm Desktop, then you will also need the Data Migration Wizard. If you are on a MAC, then you need PocketMac 4.0.

Until OS v4.2 comes out for the 8700, I'd recommend using the latest version of Desktop Manager 4.1 that is available.

Once 4.2 for the 8700 comes out, you can upgrade. There are a few bugs in DM 4.2; so I recommend 4.1....
