The Palm Treo 750 from Cingular Wireless

Thanks to a certain leak from a certain website EngadgetMobile a couple of days back, everybody and their grandma is aware that Palm is announcing the Treo 750 in US. And the lucky carrier is (drum roll please…) Cingular Wireless. This is Palm’s first Treo to sport Cingular’s 3G/UMTS network (five-band world phone). It runs Windows Mobile 5.0 with Direct Push Technology.

The Treo 750 combined with Cingular’s Broadband-like speed 3G network, is great for email, messaging, web browsing, organization software and a robust application portfolio. Its new compact design features an internal antenna, soft-touch finish, and contoured edges to make it comfortable in the hand. The Treo 750 also has a full QWERTY keyboard for easy messaging, a 1.3-megapixel camera, a bright 240x240 touch screen and support for Bluetooth® stereo headsets. If the built-in 60MB of user-available storage isn’t enough for you, there’s the option to add more memory via the miniSD (up to 2GB), which is perfect for storing data, photos, music and video.

For an awful lot of smartphone users, Palm's Treo series holds a special place in their hearts.  Whether it's the distinctive "pebble" shape or the design of the thumb-board that keeps them keen, a new release is always something to be savoured.  SlashPhone, our sister site, has a review of the latest model, the 750v, currently available in the UK from operator Vodafone.

Does it continue in the grand tradition of easy-to-use, reliable handsets, or will the 750v - or Windows Mobile 5.0 perhaps - let the side down?  There's only one way to find out, so get your sweet ass over there, sailor!

Our sister site, SlashPhone, have scored some hands-on time with Palm's latest Treo, the 680, and put up both an unboxing video and a video run-through of the menu system.  The former is shown below; the latter is over on their site.  What do they think?  Well, it's still chunkier than rivals like the Dash, there's no 3G or WiFi, but the screen is gorgeous.

For anybody wondering how they managed to make the 680 thinner than previous Palm models, they also have photos of different generation batteries, as well as comparison shots with the T-Mobile Dash and the Treo 750.

This shouldn’t come as a surprised to everyone that Palm is due to release the Treo 680 through Cingular. The Cingular version will cost $199.99 available on Friday Nov. 24, 2006. Palm is also making selling unlocked version of the Treo 680 at Palm U.S. retail stores after Dec 1, 2006 for $399.00.

Palm's Treo 680 smartphone is easy to use and packed full of features beyond its stellar phone capability, such as email, web browsing, messaging, multimedia, calendar, contacts and more with a smaller and sleeker design than its Treo predecessors in the United States.

God bless leaked presentations.  Thanks to what we can only assume is a careless marketing bod, a Cingular smartphone presentation reveals that the Treo 680 is provisionally due for release on November 5th, with a list price of $424.99 that drops sharply towards the $200 mark depending on how willing you are to sell your cellphone-soul.  Details after the cut, people.

After the launch of the Palm Treo 680 (Oi, you at the back, stop chanting "poor man's 750v"!) one of the big unanswered questions was which of the big US carriers would actually start selling it.  Well, the question is answered thanks to a leaked internal document that Engadget got their hands on, and wow-what-a-surprise-who-would've-guessed-that you'll be signing up with Cingular if you want some Palm OS QWERTY goodness.

Let me guess, you'd like a Treo 750v.  No, scratch that, you'd love a Treo 750v.  But there're all those bills to pay, food to buy, books about, um, true crime to be bought.  You can't afford all that top-spec Treo goodness.  So how about the Treo 680, announced today...

The Palm Treos have been hugely popular with the high-end corporate crowd. Now it’s striking out at the mainstream with its new lower-end Treo 680, which looks similar to the Treo 750 released last week in Europe. Both phones will be for Cingular. Pricing and availability not yet announced.
