Palm offers free Treo 750 Windows Mobile 6 upgrade

Vodafone 750v gets HSDPA, too

Palm has posted a free Windows Mobile 6 Pro upgrade for its Vodafone-branded Windows Mobile 5-based smartphone, the Treo 750v. The update also brings HSPDA high-speed download technology to the 3G phone.

While the 750v update is available to UK and Dutch users immediately, consumers in other European countries will have to wait until the end of September. So too will owners of the network-unlocked Treo 750.

The 750 already supports HSDPA, but it will get the full Windows Mobile 6 treatment and Palm's improved utility for connecting the Treo to a laptop as a wireless modem.

Palm said the update also includes improved calendar functionality, email enhancements, live links to Microsoft SharePoint documents, and the ability to set an out-of-office message and flag emails for follow-up from the device itself.

The Treo 750v WM6 update can be downloaded here.
