All right, looks like we are coming closer to the Palm Treo 750v launch, Palms first
UMTS Treo device which Vodafone plans to sell across Europe.
While neither Palm nor Vodafone has revealed too much information yet, except
that there is an announcement planned for September 12, the Palm Treo 750v
appeared now at Vodafone UK's business customer web shop.
The new Palm Treo smartphone is an industry first, using Vodafone's high-speed 3G network and
delivering Palm's ease of use on top of the Microsoft Window's Mobile operating
system Ã¢â‚¬â€œ all backed up by Vodafone's dedicated service for business.
And Vodafone was even kind enough to provide a retail price with subscription
which is Ã‚Â£127.66 - not bad at all.
Feature-wise, Vodafone has highlighted Windows Mobile 5.
20, the 1.3 megapixel
digital camera, the full QWERTY keyboard and secure Push E-Mail while I wonder
what Windows Mobile 5.2 is? So far I was aware of Windows Mobile 5.0 only but
maybe it means Windows Mobile 5 + AKU 2 = Windows Mobile 5.2?Indeed, I've received the word from Microsoft, that the Palm Treo 750v
isn't powered by Windows Mobile 5.2 but is using the well known Windows Mobile
5.0 instead. Looks like somebody at Vodafone was too excited to launch a Windows
Mobile device with AKU 2.
Still no updated photo except the previous leaks, so it looks like we have to wait until
September 12 to get a final image, how Palm's first UMTS Treo will really look like.
