After recent news that Palm is working on a GSM version of its Treo Windows Mobile device with Microsoft and Vodafone, today we get confirmation that Vodafone UK will be carrying the new "Palm Lennon", to be known as the Palm Treo 750v. Sans the antenna, the device looks alot like the 700w. One expects the device to be UMTS capable and carry Microsofts AKU2.
Vodafone have created a web page for customers who wish to be notified when the 750v is available.

I for one am hoping that Palm increases the abysmal 32mb of RAM on the 700w to a more standard 64mb for the 750v. I am also wondering when those of us using GSM carriers in the U.S. are going to get some love from Palm.

What makes me a kind of nervous is the 240x240 screen only. 320x320 or even better 360 would be way nicer.

As far as I understand things Windows Mobile 5 does not support 320x320, which is why all of the square screen WM5 devices have the crappy 240X240.  I played around with the 700w for awhile and it was definately the worst screen Ive ever seen on a WM5 device.  What I would like to see is a 320X240 landscape orientation screen in a pocket pc device, kind of like the motorola Q.  Even if the screen is smaller, I think it would be much sharper and more usable.

Indeed, 320x320 isn't supported, unfortunately as 360 isn't supported but 480 square only (if anyone wonders which screen resolutions are supported, have a look in this posting at the Windows Mobile Team Blog) but to dream about it must be allowed. wink
So yes, it's most likely that the Treo 750v will has 240x240 only.
