An Advanced Look a Palm’s Next High-End Treo

by Reads (8,594)

There have been rumors for some time that Palm, Inc. is in the processor of developing the Treo 800w, its first smartphone with Wi-Fi, but details have always been sketchy. However, new information leaking out of Vodafone gives a fairly complete overview of this model — which will supposedly debut in the next few months.

According to a datasheet that was leaked to Boy Genius Report,  this upcoming device — code-named the Palm Drucker —  will run the upcoming Windows Mobile 6.1 Professional.

It will reportedly sport a 320-by-320-pixel touchscreen and a QWERTY keyboard. Exactly what shape this model will have remains unknown, though.

In addition to the aforementioned Wi-Fi, the Drucker will supposedly include quad-band GSM and tri-band 3G (HSDPA), making it usable around the world. It will also have Bluetooth 2.0.

Other rumored features are a built-in GPS receiver, 2.0 megapixel camera, and 1500 mAh battery.

In case it wasn’t obvious, the leaked Vodafone datasheet explicitly states that the Drucker will replace the Treo 750. It does not, however, indicate what the product name will be, although Treo 800w remains the most likely candidate.

Coming When?

This smartphone will supposedly debut on Vodafone’s network this summer. However, it’s possible this model will be released by another telecom earlier than that.

Previous unconfirmed reports indicated that the 800w is slated for release during the first three months of this year.
