Palm announces update to Windows Mobile 6 for Treo 750 smartphone

Mobile phones, PDAs

Still pondering the Palm Treo 750 smartphone six months after its launch? Well, here’s something that might sway you – the company is updating the software to Windows Mobile 6.

Although details of networks offering it will only available later this week, it’s fair to say it should be offered all who currently offer the smartphone. On some US networks, there will also be HSDPA connectivity. Again, we’ll have to wait and see if that’s the case here. Windows Mobile 6 paired with Exchange Server 2007 will offer email enhancements such as HTML-formatted email messages, the ability to set an out-of-office message remotely, and live links to Microsoft SharePoint documents. There’s also newly-updated versions of Outlook, Word, Excel and PowerPoint.

The device itself offers a touch screen, full QWERTY keyboard, mini SD slot, 1.3 megapixel camera, Bluetooth and media player. Check with your network of choice for availability – but maybe leave it until the weekend.
