Palm has today officially launched the long awaited Treo 750v, together with Vodafone and Microsoft. Available throughout Europe from the end of October, the 750v will be available exclusively from Vodafone for at least 3 months. It’s the first Palm device to be designed with Europe in mind, hence the lopping off of the enormous aerial found on previous Treo devices. Whilst the previous Treo models were hugely popular in the US, the same pick-up has yet to be seen over here.
Using the latest Windows Mobile OS, the Treo 750v features a touch screen as well as a full QWERTY keyboard. The Vodafone connection takes advantage of their 3G network, formatting web pages to fit the 240×240 screen. Other features include a miniSD card slot, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth and the Windows Media Player.
Cost wise, Vodafone are offering it on certain tariffs for free, whilst others will have to pay £150. Email packages start at £10 a month, to prevent nasty surprises at the end of the month. So far, there are no details about which carriers will be picking it up from January onwards.
