And while we are talking about the Palm Treo 750: Beside the AT&T Windows Mobile 6 upgrade, Palm yesterday also announced that the Palm Treo 750, previously available in the United States only on AT&T's 3G network, is now available in an unlocked version via Palm's retail and online stores. The unlocked GSM/UMTS Treo 750 smartphone comes preloaded with the Windows Mobile 6 already, allowing an even broader customer base to enjoy the benefits of increased functionality and HSDPA (High-speed Download Packet Access) capability out of the box.

Also available from carriers around the world, the Treo 750 is a five-band world phone. It's a key asset to worldwide businesses and employees who travel internationally, as well as an effective productivity tool for any user working on the road.

"The Treo 750 smartphone integrates Palm's ease of use with the new features of Windows Mobile 6 to bring the familiar desktop experience to mobile professionals," said Brent Remai, vice president of business and consumer marketing, Palm, Inc. "Palm and Microsoft's alliance continues to provide office productivity in any away-from-the-desk setting through Direct Push Technology and a robust application portfolio."

The Treo 750 offers the hallmark Palm experience in a multifunction phone with access to email, Palm's exclusive threaded text messaging, web browsing and organization software all in a compact design. Added features such as Windows Live increases communication capabilities by letting users send voice recordings via Live Messenger and integrating Outlook and Live Contacts to show who is online directly from the Contacts screen. The device is compatible with HSDPA, allowing faster data-download speeds on 3G/UMTS/HSDPA networks.

Palm offers a unique suite of software enhancements to Treo 750 users, including the following:

  • Threaded chat view for text and MMS messages
  • Today Screen enhancements, such as the ability to "dial by name," search the web directly and perform one-touch dialing with personalized photo speed dials
  • Call and voicemail control from the Today Screen with VCR-like icons, such as rewind, delete and fast-forward
  • Ability to ignore a call and quickly send a text message such as "In a meeting" or "Can't talk right now" by selecting the "Ignore with text" option from the incoming-call screen.

Without a contract, it's now on sale from Palm for US$ 549 and can be used with any North American GSM/UMTS network.

Cheers ~ Arne
