Palm, Vodafone to ship 3G Treo 750v on 2 October

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

Palm and Vodafone have launched the Treo 750v, the PDA maker's new 3G Euro-centric smart phone, and pledged to ship the gadget on 2 October in the UK.

The pair had announced the launch back in July, touting the device as a UMTS-connected Windows Mobile 5.0 device. Palm and Vodafone confirmed those details today, but provided little else in the way of specifications. It's got a 240 x 240 display, a MiniSD card slot, a 1.3 megapixel camera and Bluetooth.

As per leaked pictures, the 750v lacks the familiar Treo antenna stub. The phone can do push email and can read and edit Microsoft Office documents courtesy of the host operating system. However, Palm has added call management to Windows Mobile's Today screen - and the ability to do web searches there too.

Vodafone is taking new orders for the 750v immediately - prices range from free to £150 inc. VAT, depending on the airtime package you choose. Existing Vodafone customers will be able to upgrade to the 750v from 2 October, when it will be also available through Vodafone and other retail outlets.

The 750v will ship next month in Austria, France, Germany, Ireland, Italy, Netherlands, Spain, Switzerland and the UK. Other regions will get it by the end of the calendar year, Vodafone said. ®
