Today I'm finally going to unbox the new Palm Treo 500v, Palm announced three weeks ago and which I've received late last week already. But due to some other press events and bank holiday in Germany, I hadn't found the time to unbox it before. Anyway, Palm's new Treo, which is exclusively on sale from Vodafone, is quite an interesting device because it's Palm's first Windows Mobile 6 Standard smartphone which means it misses a touch screen but it's a "regular" phone with a QWERTY (in this case QWERTZ) keyboard, featuring triband GSM and singleband UMTS. It neither features HSDPA nor does it supports all North American GSM and UMTS frequencies which is quite unusual for a U.S.-American product:

Coming next, the full review of the device.
