Not yet official announced by Sprint or Palm, Sprint already started to sell Palm's latest Windows Mobile smartphone, the Treo 800w through its web site.
The Palm Treo 800w, which leaked earlier already, is powered by Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional OS and supports Sprint's CDMA 800 and 1900 networks as well as EVDO Rev A and 1XRTT. Furthermore, and this makes the Treo 800w quite unique, it's Palm's first smartphone with inbuilt WiFi (802.11b/g) support. Last but not least even IrDA as well as Bluetooth 2.0+EDR and GPS are onboard. Furthermore, the Treo 800w includes a 2.0 megapixel camera with 2x zoom and sports 256 MB of RAM and 128 MB of ROM which can be extended using microSD cards.

The TFT touchscreen shows the Windows Mobile typical 65K colors and features a resolution of 320 x 320 pixel. At a size of 112 x 58 x 18.5 mm, the smartphone weights 140 grams.

The Palm Treo 800w is now available from Sprint for a regular price of US$ 599.99. With a new 24 months contract, instant savings and mail-in rebate, it's available for US$ 249.99.

I posted a message on the palm blog asking why Sprint unveiled the new Treo while Palm side didn't care to show it. They didn't publish it... I can't understand companies that do whatever they can *not to sell* their products. Why no one fires those people in charge??

I bought the phone on Friday and can officially say this is a piece of crap.  I can't wait to get an iphone as this seems to be a substantial downgrade from the 755 in terms of functionality.
