You remember the shots of the Treo 800w which leaked last week? Another week, another Palm leak and this time it's - what The Boy Genius Report calls - the Palm Treo 850. While officially not too much is known about the Treo 850, we have heard that it might be Palm's "Skywriter". The Boy Genius Report has heard that it will feature a 400 MHz CPU and 100 MB of RAM. According to the::unwired information, the Palm Treo 850 is expected to feature quadband GSM/GPRS/EDGE as well as triband UMTS/HSDPA, Bluetooth, WiFi and GPS (while neither WiFi or GPS are yet confirmed). Furthermore, as you can see on the photo bellow, the Treo 800w is running Microsoft's Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional smartphone OS:

A release date or possible price isn't known yet but a release in Europe can be expected, most likely from Vodafone (where it is rumored to be code-named "Drucker").

UPDATE: We've just received trustworthy information that the Treo 850 indeed features WiFi as well as GPS. Looks like Palm is back to the Windows Mobile game, if you like QWERTY-keyboard devices.

Cheers ~ Arne
