Palm's new Euro-centric smartphone, due to be announced tomorrow, is indeed based on the design that's been doing the rounds of the rumour sites since June. It will be released by Vodafone, under the Treo 500v moniker.

The confirmation comes courtesy of Dutch handset retailer The Phone House, which posted details in a brochure that was spotted by fansite WMExperts and others. Here's a scan of the page:

The Phone House brochure gives little else away: the 500v is a 3G device, but that's no great surprise. Palm recently confirmed it's not a Centro.

Other reports claim the handset will sport a 320 x 240 display - up from the 750's 240 x 240 - and 150MB of on-board memory, expandable using Micro SD cards. It's said to have Bluetooth 2.0 and a two-megapixel main camera.

Size? 11 x 6.1 x 1.6cm, so slightly wider and thinner than the 5.8cm-wide, 2cm-thick Treo 750.
