Palm preps antenna-less 3G Palm OS Treo
750 / 680 = 755p
Palm has shown off its latest Palm OS based Treo smartphone, a US-oriented version of the 3G-connected Treo 750 it launched in the UK in September 2006.
The Treo 755p uses the same design as the 750 and, indeed, the 2.5G 680. Initially offered through the Sprint network, the handset has a dual-band CDMA 2000 EvDO radio on board. Like the 750, it has Bluetooth 1.2 and a 1.3-megapixel, 2x digital zoom camera. Like the 680, it sports a 320 x 320, 65,536-colour display, a 312MHz XScale processor and Palm OS 5.4.9 'Garnet'.
The 755p has 128MB of Flash memory, of which 60MB are available to the user - the 680 has 64MB of user memory - and a Mini SD card slot for more.
The 755p will be sold for $280 or more depending on which Sprint airtime package you choose. The 680 costs $399 unlocked or from $199 with airtime. The UMTS-connected, Windows Mobile-running 750 is price from $299.
