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.
