New Treo Shows Palm OS Has Some Life Left
Palm this week debuted the Treo 755P, which offers a new form factor device running Palm OS, with some interesting extensions, including push e-mail from Microsoft.
Surface changes for the new Treo include an integrated antenna, slimmer size, a built-in mini-SD slot and two colors--midnight blue and burgundy. Under the hood, the CDMA-based Treo--available initially from Sprint--includes VersaMail with built-in support for Microsoft Direct Push Technology, which provides BlackBerry-like push e-mail to Outlook e-mail. Also new on the phone is support for Google Maps, built right into the device's ROM.
The device runs on Palm OS. Palm has had success with Treos running Windows Mobile and just recently announced a new operating-system direction based on Linux. Other features include support for Sprint TV video, dial-up networking via USB or Bluetooth, support for EV-DO speeds, 128-MB on-board memory and a 1.3-megapixel camera.
