Treo 650 Being Phased Out

by Reads (6,613)

Two years after its debut, the Palm Treo 650 is clearly on the way out. The most obvious sign of this appeared today on Palm’s official web store in the U.S.: a simple note saying this device is "no longer available".

The Treo 650 has been Palm’s most visible smartphone since it was introduced in 2004, and in the intervening years has been offered by carriers all around the world.

This product, though, is starting to look a bit long in the tooth, and over the course of this year Palm has come out with a number of newer models.

In January, this company’s first Windows Mobile-based smartphone debuted, the Treo 700w. This was followed later in the year with the Treo 750v, another device running that same operating system.

This spring, Palm came out with a new Palm OS-based model, the Treo 700p. And, of course, another Palm OS model, the Treo 680, debuted just a week or so ago.

Treo 650 Still Around

Just because the Palm Store in the United States has stopped offering the Treo 650 doesn’t mean it’s suddenly disappeared from store shelves worldwide, or even in the U.S. This smartphone is still available from Cingular Wireless, for example.

And Palm web sites in other countries are still offering it, including Australia and the United Kingdom.

Nevertheless, it’s virtually certain at this point that the Treo 650 will gradually be replaced with new models, especially the Treo 680.
