Not that the Palm Treo 500 is anything dramatically new, far from it - it's Palm's unbranded version of the Palm Treo 500v (see our previous review here) which Palm exclusively launched with Vodafone Autumn last year. Nevertheless, Palm's Treo 500 is now also available without the Vodafone branding and exclusivity and Palm Germany was kind enough to send one over to have a follow-up review, also to compare the vanilla Treo 500 with Vodafone's Treo 500v version. Most important for German customers - the unbranded Treo 500 is now available in charcoal gray while Vodafone (Germany's) Treo 500v was available in glacier white only.

And while both devices running Windows Mobile 6 Standard, Palm left Vodafone's TPP Start screen UI but just uses the original Microsoft Start screen instead:

More to come soon, stay tuned.
