Vodafone team up with Palm and Microsoft to create new Smartphone

Mobile phones

Vodafone UK
have claimed a world first as they partner with Palm and Microsoft to provide a new Smartphone: "Vodafone’s high-speed network and delivering Palm’s ease of use on top of the Microsoft Window’s Mobile operating system".

Palm, makers of PDAs and more recently ‘smartphones’, will create the Treo 750v (v for Vodafone?)

Vodafone’s launch page gives a few glimpses of what the system will do:

The package includes the option of real-time, wireless push email using Microsoft’s Messaging and Security Feature Pack available on Windows Mobile 5.0, with Direct Push Technology and enhanced security features.

It will be a truly powerful tool for your business, allowing you and your team to be fully productive away from the office and make the most of business and personal time.

So, a little technical jargon and some non-descript business phrases.

There’s no official launch date – "coming soon" is all you’ll get – but you can register your interest and be notified when it becomes available.
